These Old Eyes Have Seen It All
Written & Recorded by George Jones

(No Capo)

Intro.:  (E) x 2 bars

(Talking)
(E)The old man's hair was white, his eyes looked tired
He drank his beer at the table all alone
But he smiled when I spoke to him, so I sat 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, and I was glad to take the time

(Verse 1)
And he said, "I saw (E)Jimmy Rodgers (E7)yodel on the (A) stage
And I saw (B7)Hank when they walked him to (E)his grave
I saw a country boy from (E7)Memphis change the (A)world with rock and roll
And (B7)these old eyes have seen it (E)all"

(Verse 2)
And he said, "I saw (E)friends of mine on (E7)foreign soil (A) die proud
I saw (B7)things over there, son, that I still can't talk about (E)
I saw a crazy man named (E7)Hitler and his (A)army rise and fall
Yes, (B7)these old eyes have seen it (E)all

(Chorus)
(A)These old (B7)eyes have seen it (E)all
Now the (A)hands of time are writing on the (B7)wall
(A)Telling me I (B7)won't have long to (E)wait until my (E7)Jesus (A)call
(B7)These old eyes have seen (E)it all (C7)

(Verse 3)
I saw (F)my sweet Mary (F7)love me, fifty (Bb)years"
With a (C7)trembling hand, he wiped away a tear (F)
He said, "My memories of (F7)Mary are the (Bb)sweetest I recall
And (C7)these old eyes have seen it (F)all

(Chorus)
(Bb)These old (C7)eyes have seen it (F)all
They saw a (Bb)man walk on the moon and come back (C7) home
And I (Bb)know it won't be (C7)very long until I (F)hear my (F7)Jesus (Bb)call
(C7)These old eyes have seen (F)it all

(Tag)
Son, (C7)these old eyes have seen it (F)all" -----
