Every time I look in the mirror
All these lines on my face getting clearer
The past is gone
It went by like dusk to dawn
Isn't that the way
Everybody's got their dues in life to pay?

F           Eb     
I know that nobody knows
Db                 Eb  
Where it comes and where it goes
F           Eb               
I know it's everybody's sin
Db                 Eb  
You got to lose to know how to win

Half my life's in books' written pages
Lived and learned from fools and from sages
You know its true
all those things come back to you


Pre-Chorus:
F             Eb 
Sing with me, sing for the years
Db                        Eb 
Sing for the laughter 'n' sing for the tears
F             Eb  
Sing with me, if it's just for today
Db             Eb    
Maybe tomorrow the good Lord will take you away

    For all those who thought the F chord sounded a little strange with this tab, swap it out for an Fm chord and it sounds loads better!

  2. The end of the intro sounds good as a slide.

  3. what does all the stuff at the end of the 6th phrase thing for the intro

  4. I learned it as Em, G, D, A
    But this is great too. It must have taken a long time for Steven Tyler to write this.

  5. justkeeponbreathing

    yes!! fm!!! please fix!!!

  6. it’s fm, not f

  7. Bellamcbella

    It’s easier when you transpose it to -3.
