Sixty Years On


by Elton John & Bernie Taupin
Who walked me down to church when I'm sixty years of age
When the ragged dog they gave me has been ten years in the grave
And Senorita plays guitar, plays it just for you
My rosary has broken and my beads have all slipped through

Bm - - - / Bm/A - - - / G - - - /D/F# - - - / Em7 - - - /   / F#(m) - - - /   //

You've hung up your grey coat and you've laid down your gun
You know the war you fought in wasn't too much fun
And the future you're giving me holds nothing for a gun
I have no wish to be living sixty years on

Yes, I'll sit with you and talk, let your eyes relive again
I know your vintage prayers will be very much the same
Magdalene plays the organ, plays it just for you
Your coral lamp that burns so low when you are passing through

And the future you're giving me holds nothing for a gun
I have no wish to be living sixty years on
