The World I Used To Know

Song Author Rod McKuen Performer: Jimmy Rodgers Submitted by: Anonymous

[C]Some day some old [G7]familiar [C]rain
Will come [Am]along and know my [G7]name   
[Dm]And then my shelter will be [A7]gone   
[Dm]And I'll [G7]have to move [C]along
But [G7]till I do [Dm]I'll stay [A7]awhile
And [F]track the hidden [G7]country of your [C]smile

Some day the man I [G7]used to [C]be  
Will come along and [Am]call on [G7]me   
[Dm]And then because I'm just a [A7]man   
[Dm]You'll find my [G7]feet are made of [C]sand
But [G7]till that time [Dm]I'll tell you [A7]lies   
And chart the [F]hid-den [G7]boundaries of your [C]eyes

Some day the world I [F]used to [C]know
Will come along and [Am]bid me [F]go  
[Dm]Then I'll be leaving you [A7]behind
[Dm]For love is [G7]just a state of [C]mind
But [G7]till that day [Dm]I'll be your [A7]man   
And love [F]away your [G7]troubles if I [C]can  


Some day some old familiar rain
Will come along and know my name
And then my shelter will be gone
And I'll have to move along
But till I do I'll stay awhile
And track the hidden country of your smile

Some day the man I used to be
Will come along and call on me
And then because I'm just a man
You'll find my feet are made of sand
But till that time I'll tell you lies
And chart the hid-den boundaries of your eyes

Some day the world I used to know
Will come along and bid me go
Then I'll be leaving you behind
For love is just a state of mind
But till that day I'll be your man
And love away your troubles if I can
