Happy Happy oh my friend, blow out candles once again
Leave the presents all inside, take my hand
And lets take a ride backwards down the number line
You were eight and I was nine,
D* (A string 0-2-3) C
Do you know what happened then?
Do you know why were still friends?
Laughing all these many years
We pushed through hardships, tasted tears
Made a promise, one to keep.
I can still recite it in my sleep
everytime a birthday comes
call your friend and sing a song or whisper it into his ears or
write it down, just don't miss a year
You decide what it contains, how long it goes but this remains,
the only rule is it begins, happy happy oh my friend (repeat x4)
SOLO : Em C x2 (during first solo)
And when I see you coming down the line with eyes wide open
somewhere between the past and future where you drift in time
and you can see a different point of view
SOLO : G F C (during second solo)
(NOTE: the D* has a little hammer/pull off)
