Em                      G
Once I was seven years old,
              C
my momma told me,             
                      
go make yourself some friends or you'll be lonely
Em                      G           C
once I was Seven years old
Em               G
It was a big big world,
               C
but we thought we were bigger.
                          
Pushing each other to the limits,
         
we were learning quicker.
Em                
By eleven smoking herb
             G
and drinking burning liquor
C                            
Never rich so we were out to make that steady figure


[Verse 2]

Em                       G
Once I was eleven years old,
              C
my daddy told me,
                  
go get yourself a wife or you'll be lonely.

Em                      G          C
Once I was eleven years old

Em                   G
I always have that dream
                     C 
like my Daddy before me
                       D
So I´m started writing songs

I´ll starting writing stories
Em                  G
Something about the glory,  
                      C
just always seemed to bore me,
                         
Cause only those I really love 
   
will ever really know me


[Verse 3]

Em                       G
Once I was twenty years old,
              C
my story got told,
                   
before the morning sun, when life was lonely.
Em                       G          C
Once I was twenty years old
Em             
I only seek my goals,
          G
I don't believe in failure.
C                         
Cause I know the smallest voices,

they can making major,
Em                             G
I got my boys with me at least those in favour
C                            
and if we don´t see before I leave,
          
I hope to see you later.

I saw before me

                      C

we´re travel around the world
              
and we´re still rolling

and I can tell them storys
Em                       G
Most of my boys are with me
                              C

becomes a better one
Em                  G
I make the man so happy

when I wrote the letter once
C                           D
I hope my children come and visit
              
once ore twice a month
