Old Farts Holding The Fort (tempo = 112)

Intro: (C A7) (Dm G) (C A7) (Dm G)

(C A7) (Dm G)
You're still young and you take,
(C A7) (Dm G)
Everything for granted,
(C A7) (Dm G)
You learn from your mistakes,
(C A7) (Dm G)
No respect for what matters,

(E7) Cruising your life, in (A7) comfort
(Dm) 'Cause the old farts are holding the (G) fort,

(C A7) (Dm G)
You have all kinds of new ideas,
(C A7) (Dm G)
To make the world a better place,
(C A7) (Dm G)
Praises change and ideologies,
(C A7) (Dm G)
to support your growing mess,

(E7) No conscience, but still in (A7) comfort,
(Dm) 'Cause the old farts are holding the (G) fort,



Solo

(C A7) (Dm G)
Now you're slowly realizing,
(C A7) (Dm G)
You're going down over the hill,
(C A7) (Dm G)
It's payback time, light is fading,
(C A7) (Dm G)
You gonna have to pay the bill,

(E7) Fighting hard, to keep your (A7) comfort,
(Dm) Now just an old fart, you're holding the (G) fort.
