[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
