When I'm Sixty-Four

Beatles

    [C] [F] [G] [C]

[C]When I'm old and losing my hair, 
many years from [G7]now,
Will you still be sending me a Valentine?
Birthday greetings, [C]bottle of wine?
If I'd been out to quarter to three
[C7]Would you lock the [F]door?
Will you still [Fm]need me, 
[C]will you still [A]feed me,
[D]When I'm [G7]sixty-[C]four?

[Am] [G] [Am]

[Am]You'll be older, [E]too
[Am]And if you [Dm]say the word,
[F]I could [G]stay with [C]you [G]

[C]I could be handy mending a fuse,
 when your lights have [G7]gone.
You can knit a sweater by the fireside,
Sunday mornings [C]go for a ride.
Doing the garden, digging the weeds,
[C7]Who could ask for [F]more?
Will you still [Fm]need me, 
[C]will you still [A]feed me,
[D]When I'm [G7]sixty-[C]four?

[Am]Ev'ry summer we could rent a 
  cottage in the Isle of [G]Wight,
If it's not too [Am]dear
[Am]We shall scrimp and [E]save
[Am]Grandchildren [Dm]on your knee
[F]Vera, [G]Chuck and [C]Dave [G]

[C]Send me a post-card, drop me a line,
Stating point of [G7]view
Indicate precisely what you mean to say,
Yours sincerely [C]wasting away
Give me your answer fill in a form,
[C7]Mine forever [F]more
Will you still [Fm]need me, 
[C]will you still [A]feed me,
[D]When I'm [G7]sixty-[C]four?
