VERSE:
G      /      /      /   Cmaj7 /   C  /
Here comes another day,     and another
G       /       /        /     Cmaj7   /       C     /
I got so many ills and pills,   I'm about to smother
G     /      Am7 / Bm /           C   /
Hit thirty nine,    leavin' the top 40 behind
G /       D  /    C    /
Holding on   to what I got.

G / / /F G / / F C

VERSE:
I try to tell myself it doesn't matter
It's just a time of life, another rung in the ladder
Each morning I look in her sky blue eyes
The down side of life looks better

CHORUS:
G / / F#m Em

D      /       /        /      G     /  /
That old man standing on the corner 
/         D     /        /     /      G   /  / G/A G/B
He should be proud of those lines on his face
C    /      D    /    G   /        C   /  /
'Cos either he's been laughing too much
/       Am  /    F /  D /
Or feeling too much   pa-in

VERSE:
Here comes another day, and another
I sure am glad I got you for a lover
Hit thirty nine,  leavin' the top 40 behind
Holding on to what I got.
