[Verse 1]
       D               A          C           G                 D
When I got to New York City I was looking for another side of life
       D                    A                C                 G          D
And my feet were so damned calloused I could probably walk the edges of a knife
       Bm             A         C                 G            D         A
My mistakes had often led me to believe I'd never find an open door
        D              A             C                   G                 D
now I'm busted flat and broken and I don't know what the hell I'm waiting for
 
 
[Verse 2]
           D              A               C           G                 D
Some could see that I was stumbling and a couple even stopped to lend a hand
           D              A            C                G           D
Most would pass me by and ridicule and failed to recognize a fellow man
         Bm               A            C               G                D      A
Now the wind is growing bitter and the leaves begin to die and start to fall
        D            A             C       G                     D
And I wonder if next summer I will even be around this place at all
 
 
[Chorus]
   A               G                D
If I could go back to the days when I was young
    A                     G                 D
I'd travel the whole world over and then some
       Bm            A           C           G          D       A
And I'd come back to you with an everlasting Lily in my hand
        A                   C                G                           D
And I’d show the world just what it means to me for me to get to be your man
 
 
[Verse 3]
          D       A           C              G               D
On the edges of a fading afternoon I heard a voice within my head
        D         A                    C             G                D
And the echoes of forgotten words from all the dusty books I have not read
      Bm             A                    C                 G                D        A
And I wondered if by chance I should have listened back to what they said in school
      D             A                   C                    G                  D
It occurred to me I might have been the class clown then but now I’m just a fool
 
 
[Chorus]
   A               G                D
If I could go back to the days when I was young
    A                     G                 D
I'd travel the whole world over and then some
       Bm            A           C           G          D       A
And I'd come back to you with an everlasting Lily in my hand
        A                   C                G                           D
And I’d show the world just what it means to me for me to get to be your man
        A                   C                G                           D
And I’d show the world just what it means to me for me to get to be your man

                  When I got to New York City I was looking for another side of life
And my feet were so damn callused I could probably walk the edges of a knife
My mistakes had often lead me to believe I’ll never find an open door
Now I’m busted, flat, and broken and I don’t know what the hell I’m waiting for

Some could see that I was stumbling, and a couple even stopped to lend a hand
Most would pass me by and ridicule and fail to recognize a fellow man
Now the wind is growing bitter, and the leaves begin to die and start to fall
And I wonder if next summer if I’ll even be around this place at all

If I could go back to the days when I was young
I’d travel the whole world over and then some
And I’d come back to you with an everlasting lily in my hand
And I’d show the world just what it means to me, for me, to get be your man

On the edges of a fading afternoon, I heard a voice within my head
And the echoes of forgotten words from all the dusty books I have not read
And I wondered if by chance I should have listened back to what they said in school
It occurred to me I might have been the class clown then but now I’m just a fool

If I could go back to the days when I was young
I’d travel the whole world over and then some
And I’d come back to you with an everlasting lily in my hand
And I’d show the world just what it means to me, for me, to get be your man

I’d show the world just what it means to me, for me, to get be your man
