Intro
C | C/Bb | F/A | Fm/Ab | 2X

Verse
C |                      C/Bb |   F/A |               Fm/Ab |            
Sitting here in Avalon, looking at the pouring rain
C |                      C/Bb |   F/A |               Fm/Ab |    
Summertime has come and gone and everybody's home again
Gadd9G |  G  |                        Bb/F |       F  |
Closing down for the season, I found the last of the souvenirs
G               |        G  |                 Am7  |
I can still taste the wedding cake and it's sweet after all these 
BbF/AC/G |
years

Chorus
F - F/A   |  Bb    |                  C | C/Bb |
These are the last words I have to say
F/A   |  Bb    |                       C | C/Bb |
That's why it took so long to write
F/A   |  Bb    |                       C | C/Bb |
There will be other words some other day
F/A   |  Bb    | 
But that's the story of my life

(verse)
C |                      C/Bb |   F/A |               Fm/Ab |   
Comfort in my coffee cup and apples in the early fall
C |                      C/Bb |   F/A |               Fm/Ab |   
They're pulling all the moorings up and gathering at the Legion Hall
Gadd9G |  G  |                        Bb/F |       F  |
They swept away all the streamers after the Labor Day parade
G               |        G  |                 Am7  |     BbF/AC/G |
There's Nothing left for a dreamer now, only one final serenade

Chorus
F - F/A   |  Bb    |                  C | C/Bb |
These are the last words I have to say
F/A   |  Bb    |                       C | C/Bb |
Before another age goes by
F/A   |  Bb    |                       C | C/Bb |
With all those other songs I'll have to play
F/A   |  BbF/A | GF | 
But that's the story of my life

Bridge
Eb     |    Bb    |   F   | C/F  |
And it's so clear standing here where I am
Eb     |    Bb    |   F   | F  |
Ain't that what justice is for?
Fm  | Eb  |  Bb  | F/A |
Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn anymore

Verse*
C | C/Bb | F/A | Fm/Ab | 2X

G |  G  |                        Bb/F |       F  |
Stack the chairs on the table tops, hang the sheets on the chandeliers
G               |        G  |                 Am7  |
It slows down but it never stops, ain't it sweet after all these 
BbF/AC/G |
years

Chorus*
F - F/A   |  Bb    |                  C | C/Bb |
And these are the last words I have to say
F/A   |  Bb    |                       C | C/Bb |
It's always hard to say goodbye
F/A   |  Bb    |                       C | C/Bb |
But now it's time to put this book away
F/A   |  Bb    |                       C | C/Bb |
But that's the story of my life

F/A   |  Bb    |                       C | C/Bb |
These are the last words I have to say
F/A   |  Bb    |                       C | C/Bb |
That's why it took so long to write
F/A   |  Bb    |                       C | C/Bb |
There will be other words some other day
F/A   |  Bb    |                       C | C/Bb |
Ain't that the story of my life

(chorus)
F/A   |  Bb    |                       C | C/Bb |
These are the last words I have to say
F/A   |  Bb    |                       C | C/Bb |
Before another age goes by
F/A   |  Bb    |                       C | C/Bb |
With all those other songs I'll have to play
F/A   |  Bb    |                       C | C/Bb |
Ain't that the story of my life

F/A  | Bb | C | C/Bb | 2X
