When I... When I was a boy 
      F                                                             C 
I was careless and I was foolish and I treated life as if it were a toy 
           F                                                            Am                  F 
Yeah I was careless and I was foolish and I treated life as if it were a little baby's toy 
       G 
Oh boy oh boy

When I... When I was a man 
  F                                                             C 
I shoveled off my boyish ways and set about to learn the best I can 
    F                                                                       Am     F 
But all the wicked ways of this old world were just so hard to understand 
           G 
Oh man oh man 

              F                    G                  Am                     
But if you're stepping hard you're bound to make some noise 
              F                  G               C 
And if you're cryin' well then I hope you're overjoyed 
              F              G               Am 
And if you're lacking let me give you what I have 
                     G 
'Cause I've got your back 
            C 
On a common path

When I... When I was in love 
        F                                                             C 
I would count my blessings daily as it seemed they fell upon me from above 
    F                                                                            Am      F 
But somehow time had tricked me to believing that it just wasn't enough 
                    G 
And I fucked it up 

              F                    G                  Am                     
But if you're stepping hard you're bound to make some noise 
              F                  G               C 
And if you're cryin' well then I hope you're overjoyed 
              F              G               Am 
And if you're lacking let me give you what I have 
                          G 
'Cause I've got your back 
             F     C 
And I always have
