                   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

                     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

                    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
