Verse:
Gm                      Bb
Once I was seven years old,
              Eb
my momma told me,             
                      F
go make yourself some friends or you'll be lonely
Gm                      Bb           Eb
once I was Seven years old
Gm       F        Bb
It was a big big world,
               Eb
but we thought we were bigger.
                           F
Pushing each other to the limits,
         
we were learning quicker.
Gm          F      
By eleven smoking herb
             Bb
and drinking burning liquor
Eb                            F
Never rich so we were out to make that steady figure

Verse:
Gm                F       Bb
Once I was eleven years old,
              Eb
my daddy told me,
                  F
go get yourself a wife or you'll be lonely.

Gm                F      Bb          Eb
Once I was eleven years old


Gm            F       Bb
I always have that dream
                     Eb 
like my Daddy before me
                       F
So I´m started writing songs

I´ll starting writing stories
Gm          F        Bb
Something about the glory,  
                      Eb
just always seemed to bore me,
                          F
Cause only those I really love 
   
will ever really know me

Verse:
Gm                F       Bb
Once I was twenty years old,
              Eb
my story got told,
                   F
before the morning sun, when life was lonely.
Gm                F       Bb          Eb
Once I was twenty years old
Gm             F
I only seek my goals,
          Bb
I don't believe in failure.
Eb                         F
Cause I know the smallest voices,

they can making major,
Gm                 F            Bb
I got my boys with me at least those in favour
Eb                            F
and if we don´t see before I leave,
          
I hope to see you later.

                      Eb
