---------------------------------------------------------------------------

(intro - same as 1st and 2nd verse line):

D G

D G

 

(verse)

D G

Sitting here in Avalon, looking at the pouring rain

D G

Summertime has come and gone and everybody's home again

A C G

Closing down for the season, I found the last of the souvenirs

A C G

I can still taste the wedding cake and it's sweet after all these years

 

(chorus)

G C D

These are the last words I have to say

C D

That's why it took so long to write

C D

There will be other words some other day

C D

But that's the story of my life

 

(verse)

D G

There's comfort in my coffee cup and apples in the early fall

D G

They're pulling all the moorings up and gathering at the Legion Hall

A C G

They swept away all the streamers after the Labor Day parade

A C G

There's Nothing left for a dreamer now, only one final serenade

 

(chorus)

G C D

And these are the last words I have to say

C D

Before another age goes by

C D

With all those other songs I'll have to play

C D A G

But that's the story of my life

 

(bridge)

G C G D

And it's so clear standing here where I am

F C G

Ain't that what justice is for?

Bb F Bb C G D

Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn anymore

 

(verse - 1st und 2nd line instrumental)

D G

D G

A C G

Stack the chairs on the table tops, hang the sheets on the chandeliers

A C G

It slows down but it never stops, ain't it sweet after all these years

 

(chorus)

G C D

And these are the last words I have to say

C D

It's always hard to say goodbye

C D

But now it's time to put this book away

C D

But that's the story of my life

 

(chorus)

G C D

These are the last words I have to say

C D

That's why it took so long to write

C D

There will be other words some other day

C D

Ain't that the story of my life

 

(chorus)

G C D

These are the last words I have to say

C D

Before another age goes by

C D

With all those other songs I'll have to play

C D

Ain't that the story of my life

 

(chorus - instrumental fade out)

G C D
