[Intro]

F   A


[Part 1]
       
    F       
The times we had
             A
Oh, when the wind would blow with rain and snow
     F
Were not all bad
           A
We put our feet just where they had
     F            A
Had to go, never to go

    F
The shattered soul
          A
Following close but nearly twice as slow
   F
In my good times

             A
There were always golden rocks to throw
F
At those who
            A
Those who admit defeat too late
            F                     A
Those were our times, those were our times

[Part 2]

    Bb(add9) F                Dm(add4)
And I will   love to see that day
     C
That day was mine
     Bb(add9) F           Dm(add4)
When she will marry me outside
         C           
With the willow trees
    Bb(add9) F               Dm(add4)
And pla------ay the songs we made
     C
They made me so
    Bb(add4) F                Dm(add4)
And I would  love to see that day
    C
Her day was mine
