1Slow down,
G12         F13                G14
2we've got time left to be lazy
        C15        C16           Am17 G18     F19                G20
3All the kids have bloomed from babies into flowers in our eyes.
          C21    C22    Am23    G24      F25                G26
4We've got fifty good years left to spend out in the garden
         F27              Em28
5I don't care to beg your pardon,
           Dm29    G30
6We should live
           C31 C32   Am33 G34 F35 G36 C37 C38   C39
7until we die.
        C40         C41              Am42                   Em43 F44 G45
10We were barely eighteen when we'd crossed collective hearts.
        F46               Em47            Dm48                 G49
11It was cold, but it got warm when you'd barely crossed my eye.
             C50           C51      Am52
12and then you turned, put out your hand,
   G53   F54            G55
13and you asked me to dance.
        F56          Em57                 Dm58             G59
14I knew nothing of romance, but it was love at second sight.
  F60                G61                           C62 C63   Am64 G65
17I swear when I grow up, I won't just buy you a rose.
       F66              G67                             C68 C69   Am70 G71
18I will buy the flower shop, and you will never be lonely.
F72                     G73
19Even if the sun stops waking up over the fields
             C74               C75              Am76
20I will not leave, I will not leave 'till it's our time.
         F77                         G78                        C79 C80
21So just take my hand, you know that I will never leave your side.
Am81 G82 F83 G84 C85 C86 C87
C88 C89 Am90 G91 F92 G93 C94 C95 C96
           C97         C98              Am99                Em100 F101 G102
26It was the winter of '86, and all the fields had frozen over.
        F103        Em104        Dm105           G106
27So we moved to Arizona to save our only son
             C107 C108   Am109 G110
28and now he's turning to a man,
            F111                    G112
29although he thinks just like his mother,
      F113                   Em114              Dm115          G116
30he believes we're all just lovers he sees hope in everyone.
         C117          C118    Am119
33And even though she moved away,
    G120         F121              G122
34we always get calls from our daughter.
        F123                 Em124
35She has eyes just like her father's
         Dm125                  G126
36they are blue when skies are grey
              C127        C128     Am129   G130
37And just like him, she never stops,
       F131                G132
38Never takes the day for granted,
F133                           Em134
39works for everything that's handed to her,
Dm135             G136
40Never once complains.
F137                 G138      C139 C140   Am141 G142
43You think that I nearly lost you
          F143               G144         C145 C146   Am147 G148
44When the doctors tried to take you away.
              F149               G150                C151 C152   Am153 G154
45But like the night you took my hand beside the fire
        F155       G156
46thirty years ago
47to this day
F158                               G159
48You swore you'd be here 'til we decide that it's our time
               C160                 C161             Am162
49Well it's not time, you've never quit in all your life.
         F163                         G164                      C165 C166   Am167
50So just take my hand, you know that I'll never leave your side.
            F168                            G169                      C170 C171
51You're the love of my life, you know that I'll never leave your side.
Am172 G173 F174 G175 C176 C177   C178
C179 C180 Am181 G182 F183 G184 C185 C186 C187

F212 Em213 Dm214 G215
          C216        C217   Am218 G219
56You come home from work
         F220             G221
57and you kiss me on the eye
              F222                Em223              Dm224                G225
58You curse the dog you say that I should never feed them what is ours
           C226      C227      Am228    G229
59and so we move all to the garden
        F230                G231
60look at everything we've owned
        F232              Em233
61now the kids are coming home
   Dm234              Em235 F236 G237
62so I set the table
63You can make the fire.
