Verse 1:

A C#m The ocean wears the rocks into sand, D A Seasons change upon the land, A C#m Once a boy but now a man, D E I look back on the years A C#m I think of all my family who D A Came and went before I knew, F#m C#m They had dreams just like I do, D E How I wish I'd known them all.

Verse 1:

D And the songs we sing, E And the tunes we play, A E F#m Have echoed out before, D E On moonlit nights or on stormy seas, F#m A On the land or far from shore
D E As my fingers play these notes, A E F#m And the memories draw the tears, Bm C#m Bm D I think of all my family E A And the passing of the years.

Verse 1:

A C#m Somewhere in the years gone by, D A My parents they were girl and boy, A C#m Together they would laugh and cry, D E As they journeyed on through life A C#m But time goes by and hair turns gray, D A Children grow and move away, F#m C#m Young I wish they both could stay, D E But that could never be.

Pre-Chorus

D E And all the things I've learned from them A E F#m I never will forget, D E The times that they were proud of me, F#m A And the times they were upset
D E As my fingers play these notes, A E F#m And the memories draw the tears, Bm C#m Bm D I think of all my family E A A And the passing of the years.
Instrumental: A D A E A F#m A A

Verse 1:

A C#m My grandparents were special, too, D A They sang old songs that no one knew, A C#m They'd always smile when they saw you, D E Growing before their eyes A C#m But grandparents disappear, D A I miss them more every year, F#m C#m Sometimes I shed a tear, D E To see them once again.

Pre-Chorus

D E And the hands that once held us A E F#m On the days that we were born, D E Have since become all weathered, D A Aged, and worn
D E As my fingers play these notes, A E F#m And the memories draw the tears, Bm C#m Bm D I think of all my family E A A And the passing of the years.
Instrumental: A C#m D A F#m A C#m E A C#m D A F#m A E A A A A

Verse 1:

A C#m D Now as I sit and dream where my life is going A And where it's been, A C#m I picture all the sites I've seen D E And the people that I've met A C#m And sometimes when I start to cry, D A My mind drifts back to days gone by, F#m C#m There is no simple answer D E Why time goes by so fast.

Pre-Chorus

D And the songs we sing, E And the tunes we play, A E F#m Have echoed out before, D E On moonlit nights or on stormy seas, F#m A On the land or far from shore
D E As my fingers play these notes, A E F#m And the memories draw the tears, Bm C#m Bm D I think of all my family E A F#m And the passing of the yeeeears.
OUTRO: Bm D I think of all my family E A And the passing of the years.
