I'm Forty Now
Recorded by Cal Smith
Written by Tom T. Hall

There were barefoot dreams of catching outlaws
G7 C
There were school dreams of catching footballs
There were young dreams of finding great romance
D7 G7
And there were armies and I took the chance

There were avenues of glory and some deep despair
C G7 C F
With the subtle shades of silver in my hair

We'll I'm forty now and I'm a man
A7 D7 G
But I can't resist the urge to put dreams in my plans
So many hopeless dreams and I broke some vows
C G7 C G7
Maybe life begins for me I'm forty now

There were summer nights and there were good days
G7 C
Life was water and I made waves

Oh I was crazy then so I made some breaks
D7 G7
Maybe God can look the other way
Either good outweighs the bad or we forget the bad
C G7 C
I'm thankful for the few friends that I've had

Repeat #3
