Capo on 3rd fret
	  		

Intro:

Em C G 
Em C G D 
Em C G 
Em C D G 


              Em 
When we were young 
         D        Em 
Oh, when we were young 
         C             G                D       Em 
We put popcorn on a string and hung it on the sill 
C               G            D          G 
Carolers would sing as the night grew still 


             Em 
And we were poor 
        D Em 
Back in 1984 
              C              G                   D         Em 
There were candles on the fireplace and tinsel round the wreath 
C              G       D            G 
And a foot of snow on top of the streets 


Em C G 
Ooooooooooh 
Em C G D 
Ooooooooooh 
Em C G 
Ooooooooooh 
Em C D G 
Ooooooooooh 


              Em 
And when I'd grown 
             D   Em 
Like we all must do 
         C             G 
Found myself a sturdy soul 
D            Em 
To see me through 
C             G      D G  
That was the fall of '92 

        Em 
I was strong 
          D         Em 
And from dusk till dawn 
    C         G                   D              Em 
I worked two jobs just to keep the lights on 
C               G        D      Em 
I saved up for months to buy a chain 
        C         G      D         G 
And I gave it to one on Christmas Day 

D 
Ooooooooooh 


        Bm          C                    G 
And I found myself alone in the winter cold 
         Em                 C       D       G 
Now my life is filled with things I do not need 
         Em            C             G 
But the only thing I want before I'm old 
      Em     C      D        G 
Won't fit under my christmas tree 


        Em          D       Em                 
Are we lost to our younger days 
    C             G       D         Em   
No longer are we able to find that place 
C                 G       D       Em 
Strangers to the kids we used to know 
       C        G         D       G 
And I don't decorate my house no more 


(Brandi sings this part is a capella, 
 but you can play the intro) 


Oooooooooh 



G        Em           C              G 
And the only thing I want before I leave 
       Em    C       D        G  
Won't fit under my Christmas tree 
         Em           C              G 
And the only thing I want before I leave 
      Em     C      D         G 
Won't fit under my Christmas tree 
      Em     C      D         G 
Won't fit under my Christmas tree
