-3//  3  -3// 4  -3//   4  -4   4     -5

When I get older,    losing my hair

-5  -6   -5      -4      6

Many years from now

    5   -5   5*   6   5    -5    5*   6   5   4*  -4

Will you still be sending me  a   Valentine

Birthday greetings bottle of wine

-3//   3     -3//     4  -3//    4  -4    4    -5

If     I'd   been out till    quarter to three

   -6      -6      6   -4    -5

Would you lock the door

  -5     -4   -5   -6/     6    -5    -4     -5    5   -4

Will you still need me, will you still feed me

   -6    -6    -6  -6-->-5

When I'm sixty-four


   -4      5  -5  7   -6

You'll be older  too

-6    6  -5     6    6    -4

And if you say the word

-5  -4     4     -4     -5

I could stay with you


  -3//  3  -3// 4  -3//   4  -4   4     -5

I could be handy, mending a fuse

When your lights have gone

    5   -5   5*   6   5    -5    5*   6   5   4*  -4

Sunday mornings go for a ride

-3//   3     -3//     4  -3//    4  -4    4    -5

Doing the garden, digging the weeds

   -6      -6      6   -4    -5

Who could ask for more

  -5     -4   -5   -6/     6    -5    -4     -5    5   -4

Will you still need me, will you still feed me

   -6    -6    -6  -6-->-5

When I'm sixty-four


-5  -4  -5  -4  -5  -4  -5  -4  -5  -4 

Every summer we can rent a cottage

-5  -4  -5  -3//   4    4  -3// 4  -4  -3//

In the Isle of Wight, if it's not too dear

   -4      5  -5  7   -6

We shall scrimp and save

-6    6  -5     6    6    -4

Grandchildren on your knee

-5  -4     4     -4     -5

Vera, Chuck and Dave


  -3//  3  -3// 4  -3//   4  -4   4     -5
