Intro: Am F#m F#7 E Bm C# F#m
F#m
Once upon a time there was a tavern,
F#                                Bm
Where we used to raise a glass or two,
Bm                               F#m
Remember how we laughed away the hours,
    Ab                                      C#7 C#
And dreamed of all the great things we would do.

Chorus:
C#             F#m
Those were the days my friend,
                  Bm
We thought they'd never end,
              E7    Bm6           A
We'd sing and dance forever and a day,
     C#m7     Bm
We'd live the life we choose,
     E         F#m
We'd fight and never lose,
       E    C#7                    F   Dmaj7
For we were young and sure to have our way,
C#       F#m F#7 Bm C#7 F#m
La la la la...

F#m
Then the busy years went rushing by us,
F#                                Bm
We lost our starry notions on the way,
                 Bm7            F#m
If by chance I'd see you in the tavern,
     Ab7                           C#7 C#
We'd smile at one another and we'd say.

Chorus:
F#m        C#  F#m
Those were the days my friend,
                  Bm
We thought they'd never end,
Bm                  E             A
We'd sing and dance forever and a day,
     E6       Bm
We'd live the life we choose,
               F#m
We'd fight and never lose,
               C#7                         F#m
Those were the days, oh yes those were the days,
C#      F#m F#7 Bm C# F#m
La la la la...

F#m
Just tonight I stood before the tavern,
F#                                Bm
Nothing seemed the way it used to be,
Bm                             F#m
In the glass I saw a strange reflection,
Ab                           C#
Was that lonely woman really me.

Chorus:
F#m        C#  F#m
Those were the days my friend,
                  Bm
We thought they'd never end,
Bm                  E             A
We'd sing and dance forever and a day,
     E6       Bm
We'd live the life we choose,
               F#m
We'd fight and never lose,
               C#7                         F#m
Those were the days, oh yes those were the days,
F#m      Bm E A Bm F#m C# F#m Gm
La la la la...

Gm
Through the door there came familiar laughter,
  G7                          D       Cm
I saw your face and heard you call my name,
Cm                           Gm
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
    A                                      D
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

Chorus:
Daug  D        Gm
Those were the days my friend,
                  Cm
We thought they'd never end,
              F     Cm6           Bb
We'd sing and dance forever and a day,
     C        Cm
We'd live the life we choose,
               Gm
We'd fight and never lose,
               D                           Gm
Those were the days, oh yes those were the days,
Daug     D Gm F 
La la la la...
