Verse:
     D                          Gbm
When I was small, and Christmas trees were tall,
   G                  D              A
We used to love while others used to play.
D                              Gbm
Don t ask me why, but time has passed us by,
G                  D            A
Someone else moved in from far away.

Chorus:
    G                          D
Now we are tall, and Christmas trees are small,
    Em                        D  D7
And you don t ask the time of day.
    G                        D
But you and I, our love will never die,
    Em          G                 D   A
But guess we ll cry come first of may.

Verse:
    D                        Gbm
The apple tree that grew for you and me,
  G                  D              A
I watched the apples falling one by one.
D                       Gbm
And I recall the moment of them all,
    G                 D                  A
The day I kissed your cheek and you were mine.

Chorus:
    G                          D
Now we are tall, and Christmas trees are small,
    Em                        D  D7
And you don t ask the time of day.
    G                        D
But you and I, our love will never die,
    Em          G                 D   
But guess we ll cry come first of may.

Bridge:
     D                          Gbm
When I was small, and Christmas trees were tall,
G           D           A
Do do do do do do do do do...

D                              Gbm
Don t ask me why, but time has passed us by,

Some one else moved in from far away.

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
