Verse 1:

A chord diagramG+G                      A chord diagramC majorC             A chord diagramG+G
I live the kinda life  most men only dream of
                         A chord diagramD7D7                 A chord diagramG+G
I make my livin' writin' songs  and singin' them
                                        A chord diagramC majorC                            A chord diagramG+G
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
    A chord diagramD7D7                             A chord diagramG+G
And try to kick the footlights out again


Verse 2:

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


Chorus:

  A chord diagramC majorC
Tonight I'll kick the footlights out again
                                    A chord diagramG+G
And try to hide the mood I'm really in
                             A chord diagramD7D7
And put on my old instamatic grin
                                     A chord diagramG+G
Tonight I'll kick the footlights out again


Verse 3:

A chord diagramG+G                      A chord diagramC majorC             A chord diagramG+G
I live the kinda life  most men only dream of
                         A chord diagramD7D7                 A chord diagramG+G
I make my livin' writin' songs  and singin' them
                                        A chord diagramC majorC                            A chord diagramG+G
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
    A chord diagramD7D7                             A chord diagramG+G
