Intro: Ab Db Dbsus4

         Ab              Eb              Db               Bbm
It's not time to make a change, just relax and take it easy
             Ab                 Fm
You're still young that's your fault
           Bbm               Eb
there's so much you have to know
       Ab            Eb            Db                Bbm
Find a girl, settle down, if you want to, you can marry
        Ab        Fm           Bbm   Db  Eb
Look at me, I am old, but I'm happy
      Ab                 Cm         Db                 Bbm
I was once like you are now, and I know that its not easy
      Ab                 Fm                    Bbm  Eb
to be calm, when you've found something going on
              Ab             Cm                Db                 Bbm
But take your time, think a lot, why think of everything you've got
             Ab               Fm               Eb          Ab
For you will still be here tomorrow, but your dreams may not

Interlude -x2-: Ab Db Dbsus4

        Ab          Cm             Db            Bbm
How can I try to explain?  when I do he turns away again
     Ab               Fm             Bbm   Db  Eb
it's always been the same, same old story
         Ab              Cm         Db          Bbm
From the moment I could talk I was ordered to listen
              Ab         Fm     Eb       Ab
now there's a way and I know I have to go away
      Eb      Db       Ab   Ab Db Dbsus4
and I know I have to go


         Ab              Eb              Db               Bbm
It's not time to make a change, just relax and take it easy
             Ab                 Fm
You're still young that's your fault
           Bbm               Eb
there's so much you have to know
       Ab            Eb            Db                Bbm
Find a girl, settle down, if you want to, you can marry
        Ab        Fm           Bbm   Db  Eb
Look at me, I am old, but I'm happy


        Ab            Cm             Db                Bbm        
All the times that I cried, keeping all the things I knew inside
     Ab              Fm          Bbm   Eb
It's hard, but it's harder to ignore it
             Ab           Cm             Db                   Bbm
If they were right, I'd agree, but it's them they know, not me
              Ab          Fm          Eb       Ab
Now there's a way, and I know that I have to go away
  Eb      Db       Ab
I know I have to go

I like to play in the into a G with the strumming D DUDU but on the last up I play a C and then pluck the open C string open G string and then open C open A (I hope it makes sense)

The lyrics in the second re-versal of verse one is ” it’s not time to make a change just sit down, take it slowly. You’re still young, that’s your fault, there’s so much you have to go through”

Nate

I love it not just because of marvel. it is a great song, very sad and sounds great on ukulele

Spencer

I agree!

Ukuleles 4 eva

This was literally my childhood

RyLasko

I’m glad that Guardians of the Galaxy turned so many people on to such an excellent tune. Check out the Johnny Cash / Fiona Apple Duet Version if you want to have your heart ripped from your chest and presented to you.

cassandra

agreed, +2 is fairly easy and is way easier for my soprano voice to reach

John

some of the Am can be changed to Am7 and it sounds much more dynamic
