I'VE LIVED A LOT IN MY TIME
         
KEY=E

(E)- I ONCE HAD A MANSION AND (A)- LIVED IN MY (E)- GLORY,
BUT NOW I'M DOWN TO MY LAST (B7)- DIME,
(E)- I HAD A SWEETHEART, BUT (A)- I WAS UN- (E)- FAITHFUL,
OH, I'VE LIVED A (B7)- LOT IN MY (E)- TIME.

1ST CHORUS

I'VE (A)- FOUGHT THE GRIM REAPER, DOWN (E)- IN THE DARK VALLEY,
I'VE PRAYED WHEN THE SUN WOULDN'T (B7)- SHINE,
I'VE (E)- LOOKED THROUGH THE BARS OF A (A)- COLD LONELY (E)- PRISON,
OH, I'VE LIVED A (B7)- LOT IN MY (E)- TIME.



I'VE BEEN A SOLDIER, AND I'VE BEEN A RAMBLER,
ONCE THOUGHT THAT EVERYTHING WAS FINE,
I'VE HOED IN THE CORN AND I'VE PICKED IN THE COTTON,
YES, I'VE LIVED A LOT IN MY TIME.


2ND CHORUS

I'VE WALKED WITH MY MASTER, DOWN IN THE DARK VALLEY,
AND WONDERFUL PEACE I DID FIND,
SOMEDAY I'LL JOURNEY TO EDEN'S GREEN PASTURES,
YES, I'VE LIVED A LOT IN MY TIME.
