Those Were The Days


Once upon a time there was a tavern
Where we used to raise a glass or two
Remember how we laughed away the hours
And dreamed of all the great things we would do
Those were the days my friend
We thought theyd never end
Wed sing and dance forever and a day
Wed live the life we choose
Wed fight and never lose
For we were young and sure to have our way
La la la la la la 
Same chords throughout the song
Then the busy years went rushing by us
We lost our starry notion on the way
If by chance Id see you in the tavern
Wed smile at lone another and wed say
Repeat chorus
Just tonight I stood before the tavern
Nothing seemed the way it used to be
In the glass I saw a strange reflection
Was that lonely woman really me
Chorus again
Through the doors there came familiar laughter
I saw your face and heard you call my name
Oh my friend were older but no wiser
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same
Chorus again
La la la la la la etc
