Into the Sunset

capo 3, play in A

there was a time not long ago
when a man’s word was his bond
if you shook on the deal it was signed and sealed
but those days are gone
seems these days you can’t trust anyone
to do what they said they would
the world has moved on good old days are gone
and I’m afraid they’re gone for good

I wanna ride off into the sunset
like a cowboy in the old west
I got no use for what’s goin’ on here
and I think it’d be for the best

there was a time not long ago
when a man really owned his own stuff
what he built with his hands, his home and his land
even when times were tough
seems these days it’s all just on loan
from a fellow down at the bank
but if we can’t pay and he takes it away
he says we’ve only ourselves to thank

chorus

there was a time young folks cared
to hear what an old man said
they showed concern for the lessons he’d learned
from the kind of life that he led
seems these days they don’t care what he knows
or if he’s got something to say
they couldn’t care less and I have to confess
that I’d rather just ride away

chorus
I got no use for what’s goin’ on here
and I believe it’d be for the best
