Those Were The Days

(English lyrics by Gene Raskin, Music is Russian song)

	       Em  
1. Once upon a time there was a tavern   
  
         E7                                              Am  
    where we used to raise a glass or two.  
  
                                                                    Em  
    Remember how we laughed away the hours,  
  
    F#7                                                      B7  
   dreaming of the great things we would  do.  
  
                           Em                                                    Am  
Those were the days, my friend, we thought they`d never end,  
  
                       D          D7                G  
we`d sing and dance forever and a day,  
  
                      Am                                                  Em  
we`d live the life we`d choose,  we`d fight and never lose,  
  
         B7                                           Em              
for we were young and sure to have our way.    
  
- Am  B7  Em   
  
      Em  
2. Then the busy years went rushing by us,  
  
           E7                                         Am  
    we lost our starry notions on the way.  
  
                                                        Em  
    If by chance I`d see you in the tavern,  
  
              F#7                                           B7  
    we`d smile at one another and we`d say.

(2nd chorus) Those were the days, my friend, We thought they'd never end, We'd sing and dance forever and a day. We'd life the life we'd choose, we'd fight and never lose, Those were the days, oh, yes, those were the days.

Em 3. Just tonight I stood before the tavern. E7 Am Nothing seemed the way it used to be, Em In the glass I saw a strange reflection. F#7 B7 Was that lonely woman really me ? + Chorus #2 - Am B7 Em Em 4. Through the door there came familiar laughter, E Am I saw your face and heard you call my name. Em Oh, my friend, we`re older but no wiser, F#7 B7 for in our hearts the dreams are still the same. Chorus # 2
