Oh! Okay!!! The title is: "I've Got A Wonderful Future Behind Me".

j.f., Can you send me the mp3 and I'll see what I can do.

Never mind j.f. I just found it. I'll do the chords for you. This is a very nice song.
It can be heard at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=akQlNFC4B_s&feature=related

Is that the correct song?

j.f., Give this a try. The way Willie phrases words makes it a bit difficult at times to match chords to his voice. I find him to be an erratic singer, the same way he plays guitar. He jumps the timing a lot but that is his style. He actually did pretty good for most of this one.
I'll stop criticizing now because he is rich and I'm not, lol.

Use this as a reference and move the chords a bit at some places to suit how you would sing it.


I've Got a Wonderful Future Behind Me – Willie Nelson

Abmaj=xx111x

[A]/// /// /// ///
Today as I [E] walk through my [A] garden of [D] dreams
I'm a-[A]-lone in the [E] sweet used-to-[A]-be /// [E]///
My [A] past and my [E] present are [A] one and the [D] same
And the [E] future holds nothing for [A] me

[D] Yesterday's kisses still [A] burnin’
And [E] yesterday's mem'ries still [Abmaj] find [A] me
[D] Scenes from the past keep re-[A]-turnin’
I've got a [E] wonderful future be-[A]-hind me /// ///

[A]/// [E]/// [A]/// [D]/// [E]/// /// [A]/// [E]///

You [A] say there is [E] happiness [A] waiting for [D] me
[A] But I know [E] this is just fanta-[A]-sy /// [E]///
Let me [A] trade one to-[E]-morrow for [A] one yester-[D]-day
Let me [E] live in my garden of [A] dreams

[D] Yesterday's kisses still [A] burnin’
[E] Yesterday's mem'ries still [Abmaj] find [A] me
[D] Scenes from the past keep re-[A]-turnin’
I've got a [E] wonderful future be-[A]-hind me ////

hello gary w,
it's the right song; thank's for chords and lirics.sure i'ts hard to put right chords when he's singing and it's seems to me that he is just waking up in the morning!!
but i like the way he sings and his melodies are good to calm the old bear that i am. j.f
