Now I'm Sixty Four

Click Here for guitar tabs ( 2 sets ).

I ponder on those days gone by as we sat beside the rill,
And gazed upon the setting sun as it sank beneath the hill.
We gazed on it a moment now and the very sight it seemed,
That the sun it was no larger than when we were sweet sixteen.

CHORUS:
How I long for those bright days to come again once more,
But come again they never will for now I’m sixty-four.

We went a little further on, it was up the hill we walked,
And sat down on that very stone where we oft-times sat and talked.
We talked about those days gone by so blissful and serene.
We talked about those days gone by when we were sweet sixteen.

The little fish swims in the brook and he wanders down below.
He swims there still and he ever will as he did long years ago.
The little meadow by the brook is just as fresh and clean.
It’s just as fresh now as it was when we were sweet sixteen.

The past is past and she is gone, on earth we’ll meet no more,
But we will meet in heaven above on that eternal shore.
And when we meet no more we’ll part, in heaven we both shall reign,
No more to sigh for days gone by when we were sweet sixteen.
