Intro: Instrumental verse

[G]Take me down the [C]road I [G]know
[C]Where we [G]wandered [C]long a[G]go
[C]When we were [G]young and [C]yet to [G]know
The [C]road that [D]lay be[G]fore us

[G]When I, a young man [C]in my [G]prime
[C]I never [G]seemed to [C]have the [G]time
[C]To tell you [G]of the [C]way I [G]felt
I [C]left it [D]up to [G]you

Chorus
And [D]quickly moves the [C]sands of [G]time
[D]Now there are no [C]hills to [G]climb
[C]I never [G]got to [C]know you [G]mind
[C]I never [D]smelt the [G]roses

[G]Working time and [C]sleeping [G]time
[C]You never [G]ever [C]left my [G]mind
[C]When I [G]stumbled [C]in the [G]dark
I [C]left you [D]far be[G]hind me

The [G]years may come, the [C]years may [G]go
[C]Still I’m [G]sure I’ll [C]never [G]know
[C]Why I [G]took the [C]road I [G]took
The [C]road that [D]made the [G]difference

Chorus
Instrumental verse
But [G]all roads come [C]to an [G]end
[C]It’s a long, long [G]one that [C]has no [G]bend
[C]We must [G]one day [C]meet a[G]gain
And [C]mend the [D]bridge that’s [G]broken

And [G]when the time has [C]come to [G]rest
[C]I’ll find the [G]place that [C]I loved [G]best
[C]Within your [G]loving [C]arms a[G]gain
[C]Then I’ll [D]smell the [G]roses
Chorus twice
Song Words Without Chords

Take me down the road I know
Where we wandered long ago
When we were young and yet to know
The road that lay before us

When I, a young man in my prime
I never seemed to have the time
[C]To tell you of the way I felt
I left it up to you

Chorus
And quickly moves the sands of time
Now there are no hills to climb
I never got to know you mind
I never smelt the roses

Working time and sleeping time
[C]You never ever left my mind
When I stumbled in the dark
I left you far behind me

The years may come, the years may go
Still I’m sure I’ll never know
Why I took the road I took
The [C]road that made the difference

Chorus
Instrumental verse
But all roads come to an end
It’s a long, long one that has no bend
We must one day meet again
And mend the bridge that’s broken

And when the time has come to rest
I’ll find the place that I loved best
Within your loving arms again
Then I’ll smell the roses
Chorus twice
