Those Were The Days

K Podrevskii & B Fomin trans. G Raskin

4:4 Key:Am

[Am]Ʌ Once upon a time there was a [Am]Ʌtavern
[A7]ɅWhere we used to raise a glass or [Dm]Ʌtwo
[Dm]ɅRemember how we laughed away the [Am]Ʌhours
And [B7]Ʌdreamed of all the great things we would [E7]Ʌdo

[E7]ɅThose [E7]Ʌwere [E7]Ʌthe [Am]days my friend we thought they'd [Dm]never end
We'd sing and [G]dance for[G7]ever and a [C]day
We'd live the [Dm]life we choose we'd fight and [Am]never lose
For we were [E7]young and sure to have our [Am]way
La la la la la la la la la [Dm]la la la La la la [E7]la, la la la la [Am]Ʌla

[Am]ɅThen the busy years went rushing [Am]Ʌby us
We [A7]Ʌlost our starry notions on the [Dm]Ʌway
[Dm]ɅIf by chance I'd see you in the [Am]Ʌtavern
We'd [B7]Ʌsmile at one another and we'd [E7]Ʌsay

[E7]ɅThose [E7]Ʌwere [E7]Ʌthe [Am]days my friend we thought they'd [Dm]never end
We'd sing and [G]dance for[G7]ever and a [C]day
We'd live the [Dm]life we choose we'd fight and [Am]never lose
For we were [E7]young and sure to have our [Am]way
La la la la la la la la la [Dm]la la la La la la [E7]la, la la la la [Am]Ʌla

[Am]ɅJust tonight I stood before the [Am]Ʌtavern
[A7]ɅNothing seemed the way it used to [Dm]Ʌbe
[Dm]ɅIn the glass I saw a strange re[Am]Ʌflection
[B7]ɅWas that lonely woman really [E7]Ʌme

[E7]ɅThose [E7]Ʌwere [E7]Ʌthe [Am]days my friend we thought they'd [Dm]never end
We'd sing and [G]dance for[G7]ever and a [C]day
We'd live the [Dm]life we choose we'd fight and [Am]never lose
For we were [E7]young and sure to have our [Am]way

La la la La la la la la la [Dm]la la la La la la [G]la, la [G7]la la la la [C]la
La la la [Dm]la la la, la la la [Am]la la la La la la [E7]la, la la la la la [Am]Ʌla

[Am]ɅThrough the door there came familiar [Am]Ʌlaughter
I [A7]Ʌsaw your face and heard you call my [Dm]Ʌname
[Dm]ɅOh my friend we're older but no [Am]Ʌwiser
For [B7]Ʌin our hearts the dreams are still the [E7]Ʌsame

[E7]ɅThose [E7]Ʌwere [E7]Ʌthe [Am]days my friend we thought they'd [Dm]never end
We'd sing and [G]dance for[G7]ever and a [C]day
We'd live the [Dm]life we choose we'd fight and [Am]never lose
For we were [E7]young and sure to have our [Am]way

La la la La la la la la la [Dm]la la la La la la [G]la, la [G7]la la la [C]la
La la la [Dm]la la la, la la la [Am]la la la La la la [E7]la, la la la la la [Am]la
La la la La la la la la la [Dm]la la la La la la [G]la, la [G7]la la la [C]la
La la la [Dm]la la la, la la la [Am]la la la La la la [E7]la, la la la la la [Am]la
