The One I Was Then by William Clark Green

Version 2-from The Last Waltz

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ck_vyCFyKJ8

Intro:  Bm  G  A  Em

Bm
I've been on the road so long

     A
the straight and narrow I've been on

       Em7                                
is as crooked as this smile that I fake

    Bm7
And I need you like I need a drink

      A
or a cigarette some time to think

           Em7                    
about the choices that you and me made

       F#m  G                 A
And I feel lonely and I'm so sorry 

Bm
I remember the morning of Christmas Day

       A
I was still drunk you and were so afraid

   Em                       Em7
to end up with someone like me

     Bm
And then it all seemed to fall apart

      A
in a foreign land riding in your car

        Em                               Em7
as you sang I still don't know what love means

    F#m       G                A
And man that hurt me just like I hurt you

    G                                       A         D
And I have done some thinking and changing along the way

    G                          Gmaj7      A   D
And I wish that you could just see who I am today

      Bm                    A
And I know I'm a damn good man 

            G      A            G         A           D
I know you did the best you can with the one I was then

  Bm                            A
I never wanted all of this but oil and water they never mix
 
           Em
Until you light a match and turn it to flame

    Bm
And there won't be another time around 

   A
I had my chance and I shot it down

        Em
Just a bird and a rifle to blame

F#m   G             Em   D  A
Man I hate that song I play it all night long

    G                                 A          D
And I have been thinking and changing along the way

    G            A              G        A     D 
And I wish that you could just see who I am today
 
      Bm                    A 
And I know I'm a damn good man 
 
            G                             A         D
I know you did the best you can with the one I was then

        Bm                   A
Well I know I'm a damn good man 

            G                             A         D
I know you did the best you can with the one I was then

  Bm                     A
I learned from my mistakes

          G                          A    D
The next one won't be afraid of the one I was then

Note-the F#m notations mean to play the F#m note to walk to G, not the entire F#m chord.
