Forty And Fading Recorded by Ray Price [3/4 time] Written by Buck A. Moore, Jim Mundy, Donald G. Tucker and Karen R. Tucker
G D7 He looked in the mirror while he was shaving this morning G The lines in his face and the age in his eyes gave a warning C As he stands face to face with the man that everyone sees G He whispers it's hell to be forty and fading D7 G Feeling like you're 23
D7 When the young ladies look they still get that gleam in their eye G He's got money to burn but there's one thing he don't have to buy C Last night he learned you're as you let yourself be G He may look like he's forty and fading D7 G She made him feel 23
C They say it's hell to be forty and fading G From now on it's all downhill A7 But he don't believe it cause life's what's you live it D7 And he's just beginning to live
G As long as there's ladies who need a good loving C That's where he's gonna be G He may look like he's forty and fading D7 G But inside he's still 23
D7 He thinks it's a shame that God wasted years on the young G Because your life's half over before you learn how it's done C Now he's living the life that young man's eyes never see G He may look like forty and fading D7 G But inside he's still 23
C G He may look like forty and fading D7 G But inside he's still 23
