Subject: Chord Req: Growing old with Naomi - Ralph McTell
From: Bugsy
Date: 07 Oct 06 - 07:06 AM

Mrs Bugsy just promised my Grandaughter that I'd make her a CD for her Birthday (5 Days away!).

Her Mum's name is Naomi and I'd like to put this on the Disc.

Does anyone have the words/chords please???

THanks in advance

Bugsy

Here's the words Bugsy

NAOMI
(Ralph McTell)

Age has made her frail
I'm scared to take her in my arms
But there's an understanding now
And a peace behind the eyes
And age is for complaining
But you won't here much from me
Growing old with Naomi

Now I recall the first time
I took her in my arms
At times I was unfaithful
She said: "no future in the past"
So we don't talk about it
She keeps a gentle edge on me
I don't mind growing old with Naomi

She wasn't all I wanted
But she's all I'll ever need
Oh, a rich man always wants some more
And I was rich indeed
A rich man and a poor fool
Yet it turned out right for me
How lucky can you get?
Growing old with Naomi

The kids today, they think that they've
Discovered everything
But me and her, well we'd done it all
Without a wedding ring
Sometimes things remind us
And she's smiling back at me
It ain't hard growing old with Naomi

She wasn't all I wanted
But she's all I'll ever need
Oh, a rich man and a poor fool
And I was rich indeed
I never thought her beautiful
But I do now, 'cause I see
I'm getting wiser
Growing old with Naomi

Oh, the place is kind of quiet now
The kids have all left home
We'd like to see more of them
But we're grateful when they call
And in the quietness afterwards
She comes and sits by me
Make me feel like a man
Growing old with Naomi

I just worked this out from the record.


(Verses)
{C}Age has made her frail
{Am sus4) I'm scared to {F}take her in my{G} arms
But {Am}there's an under{G}standing now
And a {F}peace behind the {C} eyes
And {Bm7flat5}age is for (C)complaining
But you {Dm}won't here much from{C} me
{F}Growing {G}old with Na{C}omi

( Chorus)

She {F}wasn't all I wa{G}nted
But she's {Am}all I'll {G}ever{F} need
Oh, a{C} rich man always {G}wants some more
And {F}I was rich {G}indeed
A {Dm}rich man and a{C} poor fool
Yet it {Dm7}turned out right for {C}me
How {F}lucky can you get?
{G}Growing old with Na{C}omi


The fingering for Amsus4 is;

2nd finger on 2nd fret 4th string
pinkie on 3rd fret 2nd string
play all others open (except 6th string)

Bm7flat5 is;

1st finger 2nd fret 5th string
3rd finger 3rd fret 4th string
2nd finger 2nd fret 3rd string
pinkie 3rd fret 2nd string

play these four strings only.

Hope this helps - if you get stuck i'll tab it out completely for you.
