[Chorus] FM7 D Dsus4 D Old man look at my life, I'm a lot like you were FM7 D Dsus4 D Old man look at my life, I'm a lot like you were [Outro] D F C G D notes : FM7 : x00560 Dsus4 : x00233 D9 : x00320 Am7 : x002010 Em7 : 022030 FM7 is x00560, and you repeatedly hammer-on the third (G) string (0h5) The mention of Dsus4 is to indicate that you should fiddle around with the high E string, between D, Dsus4 and D9. (DWB: I made the corrections he notes in the next paragraph, and fixed up the ending) Just looking at the file right now, i wonder if the line: D F C G D F C G (or D F C G x2 ) is correct - strikes me it should end in F. hmmm If you make any additions or corrections - let me know of them! cheers!
