Ten Years Written and recorded by Jack Clement
C G7 C Ten years ago I was just sixteen G7 C I had a sweetheart and everything F C G7 C But I said goodbye and went on a spree G7 C I told my sweetheart to wait for me
F C G7 C Goodbye my true love I’ll see you next spring G7 C I will be home when the grass turns green
G7 C I took a trip down to New Orleans G7 C Down the Mississippi on the Island Queen F C G7 C I took a boat and went out to sea G7 C I wrote my sweetheart to wait for me
F C G7 C Goodbye my true love I’ve landed in Spain G7 C I won’t be home when the grass turns green
G7 C I got around from Shanghai to Rome G7 C I never got around to going back home F C G7 C Time just slipped by while I had lots of fun G7 C One day I heard she had married someone
F C G7 C Goodbye my true love I waited too late G7 C Ten years alone is a long time to wait
G7 C If you’ve got a true love don’t leave her alone G7 C If you can’t take her with you then you’d better stay at home F C G7 C I had a sweetheart and everything was fine G7 C Ten years to wait is a long long time
F C G7 C Goodbye my true love the fault is all mine G7 C Ten years to wait is a long long time
