Old Fashioned People
Words & Music by Chris de Burgh
 
                            Am                                      Em
Old fashioned people, they never know why
         Dm                            G
The world is changing day to day,
        E            E7                                                     Am
It moves so fast and leaves them in another time;
 
                                Am                             Em
An old fashioned dancer is dancing alone,
Dm                              G
Dreaming of those music halls,
            E                      E7                                      Am
And with his lady waltzing away until the dawn,
               F             G               Am
And I thought I heard him say,
                         F              G          Am
Please don't take my dreams away;
 
Am                      Dm        G                              C       F
They carry me back again, show me that life again,
                    E7                                      Am
Carry me back to the places that I knew,
                  Dm      G                               C7        F
Carry me back again, show me that life again,
A 7-9 ?                          E7                  Am
Carry me back to the places that I knew...
 
                            Am                                  Em
Old fashioned lovers, they walk in a park,
    Dm                      G
Beside the river hand in hand,
E                                   E7                           Am
And hurry home for tea before it gets dark,
                 F         G            Am
Could be you and me one day,
                    F           G           Am
Time will come when we will say,
A7             Dm      G                       C       F
Carry me back again, show me that life again,
A7             E7                                        Am
Carry me back to the places that I knew,
                  Dm       G                               C       F
Carry me back again, show me that life again,
                    Dm              E7                  Am
Carry me back to the places that I knew;
 
A7             Dm      G                                  C     Am
Carry me back again, show me that life again,
                 Dm                  E7                  Am
Carry me back to the places that I knew...
