[Verse]
   Am        G6       Fmaj7  | Fmaj7 | Dm |
As far as my eyes can see
          Am        G6        Fmaj7  | Fmaj7 | Dm |
There are shadows approaching me


[Pre-chorus]
       Cm                G/B
And to those I've left behind
  Bb            F/A
I wanted you to know
       Fm/Ab            Cm/G
You've always shared my deepest thoughts
    Dsus4  D       G7sus4 G7
You follow where I go


[Chorus]
    Cm Bb6  Fm/Ab            Cm/G
And oh-oh - when I'm old and wise
Fm/Ab             Cm/G
Bitter words mean little to me
Dsus4  D          G7sus4     G7
Autumn winds will blow right through me
    Cm  Bb6 Fm/Ab            Cm/G
And someday  in the midst of time
Fm                 Eb6
When they asked me if I knew you
    Dsus4     D       G7sus4 G7        Ab
I'd smile and say you were a friend of mine
    Bb/Ab            Gm             Cm    Cm/Bb
And sadness would be lifted from my eyes
Ab       Bb/Ab            C
  Oh ... when I'm old and wise

There are shadows surrounding me


[Pre-chorus]
       Cm              G/B
And to those I leave behind
  Bb              F/A
I want you all to know
       Fm/Ab            Cm/G
You've always shared my darkest hours
     Dsus4    D     | G7sus4   Gaug/Eb G/D |
I'll miss you when I go


[Chorus]
    Cm Bb6  Fm/Ab            Cm/G
And oh-oh - when I'm old and wise
Fm/Ab            Cm/G
Heavy words that tossed and blew me
Dsus4       D          G7sus4     G7
Like autumn winds will blow right through me
    Cm  Bb6 Fm/Ab           Cm/G
And someday  in the mist of time

Remember that you were a friend of mine
       Bb/Ab          Gm              Cm    Cm/Bb
As the final curtains falls before my eyes
Ab       Bb/Ab            C
