G chord diagramGG                      C chord diagramCC             G chord diagramGG
I live the kinda life  most men only dream of
                         D7 chord diagramD7D7                 G chord diagramGG
I make my livin' writin' songs  and singin' them
                                        C chord diagramCC                            G chord diagramGG
But I'm forty-one years old and I ain't got no place to go when it's over

But I'll hide my age and make the stage
    D7 chord diagramD7D7                             G chord diagramGG
And try to kick the footlights out again


Verse 2:

                                C chord diagramCC                                    G chord diagramGG
I throw my old guitar across the stage and then my bass-man takes the ball
                          D7 chord diagramD7D7                           G chord diagramGG
And the crowd goes nearly wild to see my guitar nearly fall
                                    C chord diagramCC                                G chord diagramGG
After twenty years of pickin' we're still alive and kickin' down the wall
                                         D7 chord diagramD7D7                          G chord diagramGG
Tonight I'll kick the footlights out and walk away without a curtain call


Chorus:

  C chord diagramCC
Tonight I'll kick the footlights out again
                                    G chord diagramGG
And try to hide the mood I'm really in
                             D7 chord diagramD7D7
And put on my old instamatic grin
                                     G chord diagramGG
Tonight I'll kick the footlights out again


Verse 3:

I make my livin' writin' songs  and singin' them
                                        C chord diagramCC                            G chord diagramGG
But I'm forty-one years old and I ain't got no place to go when it's over

But I'll hide my age and make the stage
