remember keys
          D
I sailed a wild, wild sea
             Em
climbed up a tall, tall mountain
        D
I met a old, old man
          A
beneath a weeping willow tree
            D
He said now if you got some questions
       Em
go and lay them at my feet
       D
but my time here is brief
          A
so you'll have to pick just three


And I said
D                                          Gmaj7
What do you do with the pieces of a broken heart?
    Gmaj7
and how can a man like me remain in the light?
       D                 D7
and if life is really as short as they say
     G                   Gm
then why is the night so long
             A
and then the sun went down
      A - let ring -      D
and he sang for me this song


      D                         Em
See I once was a young fool like you
 D
afraid to do the things
       A
that I knew I had to do
     A
So I played an escapade just like you
  Em                          A
I played an escapade just like you
           D
I sailed a wild, wild sea
             Em
climbed up a tall, tall mountain
         D
I met an old, old man
         A
he sat beneath a sapling tree
            D
He said now if you got some questions
       Em
go and lay them at my feet
       D
but my time here is brief
          A
so you'll have to pick just three


And I said
D                                          Gmaj7

and how can a man like me remain in the light?
       D                 D7
and if life is really as short as they say
     G                   Gm
then why is the night so long?
             A
