Luke Graham – 7 Years Chords

No Capo

[Chorus]
G
Once I was seven years old my momma told me
D
Go make yourself some friends or you'll be lonely
Em                     C
Once I was seven years old

[Verse]
G
It was a big big world, but we thought we were bigger
D
Pushing each other to the limits, we were learning quicker
Em
By eleven smoking herb and drinking burning liquor
C
Never rich so we were out to make that steady figure

[Chorus]
G
Once I was eleven years old my daddy told me
D
Go get yourself a wife or you'll be lonely
Em                      C
Once I was eleven years old
[Verse 2] G I always had that dream like my daddy before me D So I started writing songs, I started writing stories Em Something about that glory just always seemed to bore me C Cause only those I really love will ever really know me [Chorus] G Once I was 20 years old, my story got told D Before the morning sun, when life was lonely Em C Once I was 20 years old [Verse 3] G I only see my goals, I don't believe in failure D Cause I know the smallest voices, they can make it major Em I got my boys with me at least those in favor C And if we don't meet before I leave, I hope I'll see you later
[Chorus] G Once I was 20 years old, my story got told D I was writing about everything, I saw before me Em Once I was 20 years old C Soon we'll be 30 years old, our songs have been sold G D We've traveled around the world and we're still roaming Em C Soon we'll be 30 years old [Verse 4] G I'm still learning about life D My woman brought children for me Em So I can sing them all my songs C And I can tell them stories G Most of my boys are with me D Some are still out seeking glory Em And some I had to leave behind C My brother I'm still sorry [Bridge] G Soon I'll be 60 years old, my daddy got 61 D Remember life and then your life becomes a better one Em I made a man so happy when I wrote a letter once C I hope my children come and visit, once or twice a month [Chorus] G Soon I'll be 60 years old, will I think the world is cold D Or will I have a lot of children who can warm me Em Soon I'll be 60 years old C Soon I'll be 60 years old, will I think the world is cold G D Or will I have a lot of children who can hold me Em C Soon I'll be 60 years old [Chorus] G Once I was seven years old, my momma told me D Go make yourself some friends or you'll be lonely Em C Once I was seven years old
