    Intro:  / G - - - / Em - - - / C - - - / D - - - / x2


                       G   Em           C                         D

    Remember when    I was young and so were you

                             G  Em      C                        D

    And time stood still     and love was all we knew

                         G                Em              C                           D

    You were the first, so was I--we made love and then you cried

                         G    Em  C   D (2)

    Remember when


                         G   Em                       C                              D

    Remember when      we vowed the vows and walked the walk

                         G      Em                 C                      D

    We gave our hearts,    made the start, and it was hard

                          G                        Em                       C                          D

    We lived and learned, life threw curves, there was joy and there was hurt

                        G    Em  C   D (2)

    Remember when


                         G   Em               C                          D

    Remember when      old ones died and new were born

                           G      Em        C                 D

    And life was changed,   disassembled, rearranged

                       G                Em           C                         D

    We came together, fell apart, and broke each other's hearts

                        G    C    G    Am7 (½)   G/B (½)

    Remember when


    Instrumental:  / C - - - / Am - - - / F - - - / G - - - / x3

                             / C - - - / - - - - / Esus4 - - - / E (hold) /


                        A   F#m        D                  E

    Remember when,       the sound of little feet

                  A    F#m       D                          E

    was the music      we danced to week to week

                              A                     F#m                     D                E

    Brought back the love, we found trust, vowed we'd never give it up

                       A   F#m   D   E

    Remember when


                        A   F#m    D                     E

    Remember when        thirty seemed so old

                         A   F#m        D                     E

    Now, lookin' back        it's just a steppin' stone

                        A                          F#m               D            E

    To where we are, where we've been, said we'd do it all again

                        A   F#m   D   E (hold 3 measures)

    Remember when


                        A   F#m     D                                E

    Remember when        we said when we turned gray

                      A       F#m          D                     E

    When the children         grow up and move away

                        A                   F#m     D                        E (3, hold 2nd and 3rd measures)

    We won't be sad, we'll be glad    for all the life we've had

                                      A   F#m   D   E

    And we'll remember when

                        A   F#m   D   E

    Remember when

          (ritard)     E (hold)

    Remember when
