Intro: A

A
We never had that much to do
                                     D
So we'd just lay around in someone’s house
  E
Someday I’ll have it all again
                   A
Just like way back when


A
Back then we’d sleep until the afternoon
                             D
Then we'd just get up and go outside
       E
Open a window, let the breeze blow in,
               A
Forget everything


    D                  A                   E           D
Yea, those will be the days that I will be missing you
                         A                  E            D
When I’m older, when I’m gray and when I’ll stop working
                  A
I hope that I can say
                     E    
When all my days are done
                             A
We were just having fun


A
Well we’d go drinking in the afternoon
                                D
Lie out on the grass, and fall asleep
           E                  
Oh will I ever see that girl again?
                       A
The girl from way back when


A
Yea, we used to share a cigarette
                                 D
And t'row together everything we had
             E
And then go driving in my parents’ car
                     A
We never strayed too far


       D                  A                   E           D
Oh yea, those will be the days that I will be missing you
                         A                  E            D
When I’m older, when I’m gray and when I’ll stop working
                  A
I hope that I can say
                     E     
When all my days are done
                 A
That I had my fun

Interlude: D A E A E D

D                  A                E        E7
Those will be the days that I had my fun
    D                 A
Yea, time can move so fast
     E                E7      E
Some things are made to last
          D                A
Here's to you, my dear old friend
        E
From way back when


    D                  A                   E           D
Yea, those will be the days that I will be missing you
                         A                  E            D
When I’m older, when I’m gray and when I’ll stop working
                  A
I hope that I can say
                     E     
When all my days are done
                     A
That I had my fun

    just slide up 2 frets from the D chord to get an easier E, it also sounds nice if you catch the sliding sound. I usually like to play my D 2225 and E 4447

  2. Anna.loisc

    Great song and easier when in -2 but you don’t really need d7 if it’s too difficult

  3. Great Song! Easier to play when you transpose -2 !
