These Old Eyes Have Seen It All
George Jones
Album: Wine Colored Roses

E
The old man's hair was white and his eyes looked tired
He drank his beer at a table all alone
But he smiled when I spoke to him so I sit down for awhile
I wound up sitting there the whole night long
'Cause I could see he had a lifetime on his mind
So I just sat there and listened I was glad to take the time
Then he said...  

E                                 A
I saw Jimmy Rodgers yodel on the stage
           B7                               E
And I saw Hank when they walked him to his grave

I saw a country boy from Memphis 
            A
Change the world with rock and roll
     B7                          E
And these old eyes have seen it all

Then he said...  

                                           A
I saw friends of mine on foreign soil die proud
        B7                                           E
I saw things over there son that I still can't talk about
                                        A
I saw a crazy man named Hitler and his army rise and fall
     B7                          E
Yes these old eyes have seen it all

A          B7                E
These old eyes have seen it all
         A                                B7
Now the hands of time are writing on the wall
A             B7              E                        A
Telling me I won't have long waiting till my Jesus to calls
B7                          E - C
These old eyes have seen it all

(Go Up One Step To F)
           F                 Bb
I saw my sweet Mary love me fifty years
         C                             F
With a trembling hand he wiped away a tear
                                      Bb
He said my memories of Mary are the sweetest I recall
      C                         F 
And these old eyes have seen it all

Bb         C                F
These old eyes have seen it all
           Bb                                  C
They saw a man walk on the moon and come back home
    Bb                  C                 F            Bb
And I know it won't be very long until I hear my Jesus call
C                           F
These old eyes have seen it all 

     C                          F
Son these old eyes have seen it all
