The World I Used To Know
Recorded by Jimmy Rodgers
Written by Rod McKuen

C G7 C
Some day some old familiar rain
Am G7
Will come along and know my name
Dm A7
And then my shelter will be gone
Dm G7 C
And I'll have to move along
G7 Dm A7
But till I do I'll stay awhile
F G7 C
And track the hidden country of your smile

G7 C
Some day the man I used to be
Am G7
Will come along and call on me
Dm A7
And then because I'm just a man
Dm G7 C
You'll find my feet are made of sand
G7 Dm A7
But till that time I'll tell you lies
F G7 C
And chart the hid-den boundaries of your eyes

Some day the world I used to know
Am F
Will come along and bid me go
Dm A7
Then I'll be leaving you behind
Dm G7 C
For love is just a state of mind
G7 Dm A7
But till that day I'll be your man
F G7 C
And love away your troubles if I can
