Middle Aged Blues by Darryl John (c) 2010

Verse 1:
(E) I’ve got those middle aged blues,
(A) You can bet on that for (E) sure.
I’ve got (A) those middle aged blues,
My shoes don’t fit me no (E) more.
I ain’t (B) foolin’ with you Mama,
(A) Just watch me walk out that (E) door.
(spoken) You know that I will now; (B7)

Verse 2:
(E) If fifty five is middle aged,
(A) Gonna live to be a hundred and (E) ten.
If fifty (A) five is middle aged,
Gonna be an old man by (E) then.
I’m a (B) tellin’ you now Mama,
(A) Only wanna live three score and (E) ten.
(spoken) That’s what I’m tellin’ you now;

Chorus:
(A) I’ve got those middle aged blues.
Feeling my age (E) today
I’ve got those (F#) middle aged blues.
I just don’t know what to (B) say.
I’ve got those (A) middle aged blues.
I’ll have to find a new (E) way
(A) I’ve got those middle aged blues.
(B) And it’s really not O-(E)-K (A-E)

Instrumental: (Just a verse with B7)

Verse 3:
(E) You know I don’t wanna get old
(A) However a fact is a (E) fact.
Said now (A) I don’t wanna get old
That will surely de-(E)-tract.
I’m a (B) moanin’ and a groanin’
(A) And there ain’t no turnin’ (E) back.
(spoken) Yeah I’m complain’ Mama; (E7)

Chorus:
(A) I’ve got those middle aged blues.
Feeling my age (E) today
I’ve got those (F#) middle aged blues.
I just don’t know what to (B) say.
I’ve got those (A) middle aged blues.
I’ll have to find a new (E) way
(A) I’ve got those middle aged blues.
(B) And it’s really not O-(E)-K (A-E)

Instrumental: (Just a verse with an E7 into the chorus)

Chorus:
(A) I’ve got those middle aged blues.
Feeling my age (E) today
I’ve got those (F#) middle aged blues.
I just don’t know what to (B) say.
I’ve got those (A) middle aged blues.
I’ll have to find a new (E) way
(A) I’ve got those middle aged blues.
(B) And it’s really not O-(E)-K (A-E)

Verse 4:
(E) I’ve got those middle aged blues,
(A) You can bet on that for (E) sure.
I’ve got (A) those middle aged blues,
My shoes don’t fit me no (E) more.
I ain’t (B) foolin’ with you Mama,
(A) Just watch me walk out that (E) door.

Finale:
I ain’t (B) foolin’ with you Mama,
(A) Just watch me walk out that (E) door.
I ain’t (B) foolin’ with you Mama,
(A) Just watch me walk out that (E) door.
Said ain’t (B) foolin’ with you Mama,
(A) Just watch me walk out that (E) door. (A-B-A-E)
(spoken) Yeah you know that I will now Mama...
