Old Days 
Recorded by John Hiatt

Intro.:  | (G) | (C) | (Em) | (D) | (G) | (C) | (Em) (D) | (G)

I was (G)sittin' in the dressing room with Brownie (C)McGee
He was (Em)drinkin' that milk with that (D)Dewar's Whiskey
Said John, there's (G) nothin' written anywhere, suggests the (C)blues will set you free
Old (Em)days are comin' (D)back to (G)me

I was (G)ridin' in the back seat, with (C)Sonny Terry
Little harmonica (Em) player used to drive him around, I think his (D)name was Harry
Tried to (G)get him to eat tofu, raw vegetables, (C) nuts, and berries
But (Em)Sonny wasn't havin' (D)any of it (G)

He let me (G)share a room with 'em for a (C)couple of weeks
Sonny (Em)slept with his good eye open staring out from (D)under the sheets
I was (G)young and uncomfortable, I don't mind tellin' (C)ya kinda gave me the creeps
Old (Em)days are comin' (D)back to (G)me

(G) Old days are comin' (C)back to me
Don't know (Em)what was so good about 'em, I played (D)practically free
I had (G)nothin' to live up to (C)everywhere to be
Old (Em)days are comin' (D)back to (G)me

On some (G)dates with Mose Allison somewhere (C)out in the Midwest
Said some of my (Em)lyrics reminded him of the poet Kenneth Patchen I (D)took it as a compliment
He was re-(G)ferring to the line about wearin' neon signs (C)on your wounds, later on, I knew what he meant
(Em) Old days are (D)comin' back to (G)me

On a (G)date with John Lee Hooker at a packed (C)joint up in Washington
He (Em)came in with a gorgeous woman on each arm as (D)I was singing my song
(G)Walked 'em right up and sat 'em on the edge of the (C)stage as I went singing along
And that's (Em)called "evenin' (D)son, I'm the (G)headliner"

(G) Old days are comin' (C)back to me
I don't know (Em)what was so great about 'em, I played (D)practically free
But I (G)had nothing to live up to and (C)everywhere to be
Old (Em)days are comin' (D)back to (G)me

Inst.:  | (G) | (C) | (Em) | (D) | (G) | (C) | (Em) (D) | (G) |

Played a (G)gig with John Hammond Jr. up in (C)Vancouver BC
Exotic (Em)dancer came in my dressing room, started (D)dancing exotically
They were (G)smoking something in the audience that night, smelled (C)exactly like cat pee
Old (Em)days are comin' (D)back to me (G)

(G) Opened up a gig for Gatemouth Brown down in (C) Baton Rouge
He was (G)playing that Hillbilly, Jazz, Cajun, Country (G)Zydeco, and Blues
(G)Throwin' it out past the walls like (C)some kind of musical centrifuge
(Em)Old days are (D)comin' back to (G)me

(G) Old days are comin' (C)back to me
I don't know (Em)what was so good about 'em, I played (D)practically free
But I had (G) nothin' to live up to (C)everywhere to be
Old (Em)days are comin' (D)back to me (G)

Yeah, (G) old days are comin' (C)back to me
I don't know (Em)what was so great about 'em, I played (D)practically free
But I had (G) nothin' to live up to (C)everywhere to be
Old (Em)days are comin' (D)back to me (G)

(Em) Old days are (D)comin' back to me (G)

Outro.:  | (G)  | (C)  | (G) / (Em) Yeah (D) | (C) (D) (G) -----
