Fifty Years Ago chords by Ian Tyson

Ian Tyson Chords

Song: Fifty Years Ago
Sung By: Ian Tyson
CD: ãCowboyographyä and ãAll the Good ÎUnsä
Written By: Ian Tyson
Transcribed By: M. Lawrence

Verse 1.
If I could roll back the years
Back when I was young and limber
Loose as ashes in the wind
          Bm           E
I had no irons in the fire
I could ride them wild young broncos
The adrenaline came quickly
And Juanita down at Mona's
        E            A
Was my only hearts desire

Verse 2.
We were living for the moment
And the sunlight on my silver bits
The ringing of my jinglebobs
         Bm          E
Was the music of my soul
In the alley back of Mona's
I held Juanita in the shadows
How we held on to each other
         E              A
And the lovin' that we stole

A        Bm             E
And the sighing of the pines
Up here near the timberline
Makes me wish I'd done things different
Oh, but wishing don't make it so
        Bm                 E
Oh the time has passed so quick
The years all run together now
Did I hold Juanita yesterday
Was it fifty years ago

(Instrumental ö A    D    A     E     A)

Verse 3.

If I would have quit them broncos
She might have quit that business
But that was back in the fast days
You know before the wire
I bet I could still find her
Bet she's still as pretty
As when she's Juanita down at Mona's
And my only heart's desire

Repeat Chorus twice
