VERSE 1
C F C
If life is like a candle bright
G
Death must be the wind
C F
You can close your window tight
C G C
And it still comes blowing in
F C
So I will climb the highest hill
G
To watch the rising sun
C F
And pray that I don't feel that chill
C G C
'Till I'm too old to die young

CHORUS
F C
Let me watch my children grow
G
To see what they become
C F
Oh Lord don't let that cold wind blow
C G C
'Till I'm too old to die young
VERSE 2

Now I have had some dear sweet friends
I thought would never die
Now all that is left of them
Is the teardrops in my eye
If I could have one wish today
And know it would be done
I would say every one can stay
'Till they're too old to die young

CHORUS

Moe Bandy singing "Till I'm Too Old to Die Young"

He sings it in D, I would think C would be kind of low for most male voices, but even if you did sing it in C the chords above are missing a B flat in the first line of the chorus, on "children"

thus

CHORUS:
F               Bflat    C   
Let me watch my children grow
                   G
To see what they become
   C                              F
Oh Lord don't let that cold wind blow
          C       G      C
'Till I'm too old to die young


easier to sing and play it in D imo, and jack the chords up a tone

I just heard this for the first time on Stan Hitchcock's new-reruns TV program, "Heart to Heart." We'll do this one in worship, soon. had.

Thanks especially for the arrangement options, guys.

Probably Hardi and I will duet as an offertory. It certainly holds a number of harmony options for fiddle and voice.

Our Sat. night congregation is one well familiar with facing death, with wisdom and seasoned humor. We sing about it often, so I added this 3rd verse for them. By the nature of the congregation of this service, they are already "too old to die young."

~Susan

====

And as we gather here tonight
In power and in might;
I can feel the Spirit telling me
"Just be grateful for tonight."
So if I could offer one more prayer--
Thanksgivings are always [so] true--
I would thank Him for friends, here and 'way up there,
But especially for you.

===
