Those Were The Days


Intro
Em___E7___Am____B7___Em____

 
Once upon a time there was a tavern
Em_________________________________
Where we used to raise a glass or two
E7____________(F#)_____(G#)___Am_
Remember how we laughed away the hours
Am_____________________________Em__
And dreamed of all the great things we would do
_____F#______________________________B7_
 
Chorus
Those were the days my friend
B7___________________Em__
We thought theyd never end
________________Am______
Wed sing and dance forever and a day
_______________D_____________G_
Wed live the life we choose
___________Am___________
Wed fight and never lose
_____________Em_______
For we were young and sure to have our way
____________B7___________________Em__
La la la la la la 
EmAmB7.Em
 
Same chords throughout the song
 
Then the busy years went rushing by us
We lost our starry notion on the way
If by chance Id see you in the tavern
Wed smile at lone another and wed say
 
Repeat chorus
Just tonight I stood before the tavern
Nothing seemed the way it used to be
In the glass I saw a strange reflection
Was that lonely woman really me
 
Chorus again
Through the doors there came familiar laughter
I saw your face and heard you call my name
Oh my friend were older but no wiser
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same
 
Chorus again
La la la la la la etc
