(Cat Stevens)

	  		Intro: G C/G G C/G G C/G G C/G  

           G                       D                      
It's not time to make a change  
           C              Am 
Just relax, take it easy               
                 G                           Em                          
You're still young, that's your fault,               
                  Am                        D               
There's so much you have to know.               
           G             D                        
Find a girl, settle down,  
          C                    Am 
If you want, you can marry               
             G            Em             Am       D               
Look at me, I am old, but I'm happy                 
         G                          D                    
I was once like you are now  
          C                           Am 
And I know that's it's not easy               
          G                           Em                    
To be calm when you've found  
                  Am          D 
Something going on.               
                      G                  D               
But take your time, think a lot                
             C                           Am                
Think of everything you've got.               
                      G                 Em               
For you will, still be here tomorrow                
               D                 G     C/G C C/G          
But your dreams may not         
              G             Bm              
How can I try to explain                
           C                    Am               
when I do, he turns away again.                
     G                         Em                     
It's always been the same  
                  Am   D 
Same old story               
                G                      Bm                
From the moment I could talk,   
         C               Am            
I was ordered to listen                
                       G             Em                      
Now there's a way and I know  
          D          G    
That I have to go away                
  D          C          G   C/G G C/G              
I know, I have to go

           G                      D                              
It's not time to make a change  
             C                    Am 
Just sit down, take it slowly               
                   G                         Em               
You're still young, that's your fault,                
                  Am                             D               
There's so much you have to go through               
           G               D                     
Find a girl, settle  down  
         C                     Am 
if you want, you can marry               
             G            Em              Am     D               
Look at me, I am old, but I'm happy               
           G                     Bm              
All the times, that I've tried                
              C                     Am               
Keeping all the things I knew inside.               
     G                  Em              Am      D               
It's hard, but it's harder, to ignore it               
                   G             Bm               
If they were right, I'd agree                
           C                              Am               
But it's them they know not me now               
               G              Em                   
There's a way and I know 
           D         G 
That I have to go away                
  D         C          G               
I know, I have to go...
