I'm Forty Now Song Lyrics and Chords by Cal Smith

 

I'm Forty Now
Recorded by Cal Smith
Written by Tom T. Hall
C 
There were barefoot dreams of catching  
F 
outlaws
 
There were  
G7 
school dreams of catching foot
C 
balls
 
There were young dreams of finding  
F 
great 
 
romance
 
And there were  
D7 
armies and I  
G7 
took the chance
 
There were  
C 
avenues of glory and some  
F 
deep 
 
despair
 
With the  
C 
subtle shades of  
G7 
silver in my  
C 
hair
F 
C 
We'll I'm forty  
F 
now and I'm a  
C 
man
 
But I can't resist the  
A7 
urge to put  
D7 
dreams in my  
G 
plans
C 
So many hopeless dreams and I  
F 
broke some vows
 
Maybe  
C 
life begins for  
G7 
me I'm forty  
C 
now 
 
 
G7 
 
There were  
C 
summer nights and there were  
F 
good 
 
days
 
Life was  
G7 
water and I made  
C 
waves
 
Oh I was crazy then so I  
F 
made some breaks
 
Maybe  
D7 
God can look the  
G7 
other 
 
way
 
Either  
C 
good outweighs the bad or we  
F 
forget the bad
 
I'm  
C 
thankful for the few  
G7 
friends that I've  
C 
had

Repeat #3
