[E]At a b[A]ar down in [F#7]Dallas an [Bm]old man c[A]himed [Bm]in,   
And I t[Bm7-5]hought he was[E7-9] out of[Fdim] his h     [A]ead. [E]    [Cm7-5]    [E7]    
[E]Just b[A]eing a y[F#7]oung man I j[Bm]ust laughed [A]it   [Bm]off   
When I he[D9]ard w[A]hat t[E]hat  [Bm7-5] old       [E7/6]man h     [E7]ad sa[A]id.  

[E]He   [Cm7-5]said I      [E7]'ll n[A]ever ag[F#7]ain turn the [Bm]young lad[A]ies h[Bm]eads,
Or[Bm7-5] go running [E7-9]off in [Fdim]- to the w[A]ind. [E]    [Cm7-5]    
I[E7]'m th[A]ree quarters [F#7]home from the s[Bm]tart to t[A]he e[Bm]nd.   
And I w[D9]ish    [A]I   [E]was [Bm7-5]eight - [E7/6]teen      [E7]a - g[A]ain.

Refrain:
I [A]wish I was [F#7]eighteen a[Bm]gain, and go[D9]ing where[Bm7-5] I've       [E7/6] nev -     [E7] er b[A]een.
But o[A]ld folks and [F#7]old oaks standing t[D9]all   [Bm7-5] just       [Gdim] pre - te[D]nd.  
I w[D9]ish    [A]I   [E]was [Bm7-5] eigh -      [E7/6] teen      [E7]a - ga[A]in.  

[E]Now t[A]ime turns the p[F#7]ages, and oh, l[Bm]ife goes [A]so f[Bm]ast.   
The ye[D9]ars turn the [Bm7-5]black       [E7-9]hair      [Fdim]all gr     [A]ey. [E]    [Cm7-5]    [E7]    
[E]I ta[A]lked to some y[F#7]oung folks -- hey they [Bm]don't und[A]ers  [Bm]tand   
The wo[D9]rds t[A]his o[E]ld   [Bm7-5] man's       [E7/6]got      [E7]to s   [A]ay.  

I [A]wish I was [F#7]eighteen ag[Bm]ain, and g[D9]oing where[Bm7-5] I've       [E7/6] nev - [E7]er b   [A]een.
But o[A]ld folks and [F#7]old oaks standing t[D9]all   [Bm7-5] just       [Gdim] pre - te[D]nd.  
I w[D9]ish    [A]I   [E]was [Bm7-5] eigh -      [E7/6] teen      [E7]a - ga[A]in.

Lord I w[D9]ish    [A]I w  [E]as   [Bm7-5] eigh - [E7/6]teen      [E7]a - g[A]ain  

At a bar down in Dallas an old man chimed in,
And I t[Bm7-5]hought he was[E7-9] out of his head. [Cm7-5]
Just being a young man I just laughed it off
When I heard what that[Bm7-5] old man had said.

He [Cm7-5]said I'll never again turn the young ladies heads,
Or[Bm7-5] go running [E7-9]off in - to the wind. [Cm7-5]
I'm three quarters home from the start to the end.
And I wish I was [Bm7-5]eight - teen a - gain.

Refrain:
I wish I was eighteen again, and going where[Bm7-5] I've nev - er been.
But old folks and old oaks standing tall[Bm7-5] just pre - tend.
I wish I was [Bm7-5] eigh - teen a - gain.

Now time turns the pages, and oh, life goes so fast.
The years turn the [Bm7-5]black [E7-9]hair all grey. [Cm7-5]
I talked to some young folks -- hey they don't understand
The words this old [Bm7-5] man's got to say.

I wish I was eighteen again, and going where[Bm7-5] I've nev - er been.
But old folks and old oaks standing tall[Bm7-5] just pre - tend.
I wish I was [Bm7-5] eigh - teen a - gain.
