When I was seventeen,           it was a very good year; 
 
          Em       Em/F#      G  
It was a very good year for small town girls 
 
     F                 Fm7/6    F 
And soft summer nights; 
 
     E                            D 
We'd hide from the lights on the village green 
 
            E     
When I was seventeen.     
 
 
(Repeat Intro) 
 
           Em     E+  Em7 Em6          F               Fm7/6    F 
When I was twenty-one,       it was a very good year; 
 
         Em        Em/F#     G  
It was a very good year for city girls 
 
      F                 Fm7/6   F 
Who lived up the stairs 
 
       E                   D 
With perfumed hair that came undone 
 
            E 
When I was twenty-one.     
 
 
(Repeat Intro) 
 
            Em      E+  Em7 Em6            F              Fm7/6  F 
When I was thirty-five,          it was a very good year; 
 
         Em        Em/F#      G  
It was a very good year for blue-blooded girls 
 
    F                Fm7/6  F 
Of independent means; 
 
       E                              D 
We're ride in limousines that their chauffeurs would drive 
 
            E 
When I was thirty-five.    
 
 
(Repeat Intro) 
 
             Em       E+   Em7  Em6              F                Fm7/6  F 
And now the days are short,          I'm in the autumn of my years, 
 
           Em         Em/F#      G  
And now I think of my life as  vintage wines 
 
    F            Fm7/6  F 
In fine old kegs; 
 
          E                       D 
From the brim to the dregs, they pour sweet and clear... 
 
          E 
It was a very good year.
