Paul Simon
A                      D      A
The first time I heard ‘Peggy Sue’

A            E     A
I was twelve years old

A               D     A
Russians up in rocket ships

A           E   A
And the war was cold

A                  D   
Now many wars have come and gone

E        A
Genocide still goes on

F#m         D
Buddy Holly still goes on

        A       E   A
But his catalog was sold

A               D         A
First time I smoked Guess what’ 
A                   D     A
First time I heard ‘Satisfaction’

A               E   A
I was young and unemployed

A                D
Down the decades every year

E                    A
Summer leaves and my birthday’s here

F#m                      D
And all my friends stand up and cheer

          A    E      A
And say, ‘Man, you’re old’

Getting old


               C    F  E
You’re getting old

We celebrate the birth of Jesus on Christmas Day
And Buddha found nirvana along the lotus way
About 1,500 years ago the messenger Mohammed spoke
And his wisdom like a river flowed
Through hills of gold
Wisdom is old
The Koran is old
The Bible is old
Greatest story ever told

Work ‘em out

The human race has walked the earth for 2.7 million
And we estimate the universe at 13’14 billion
When all these numbers tumble into your imagination
Consider that the Lord was there before creation
God is old
We’re not old
God is old
He made the mold
