Those Were The Days Liam Clancy Lyrics Guitar Chords. A well known song before Liam recorded it. First recorded in 1920 by Alexander Vertinsky then later by Mary Hopkins in 1968. Written by Gene Raskin. Also recorded by Paul McCartney.

[Am] Once upon a time there was a tavern
[A7] Where we used to raise a glass or [Dm] two
[Dm] Remember how we laughed away the [Am] hours
And [B7] dreamed of all the great things we would [E7] do

Chorus
Those were the [Am] days my friend we thought they'd [Dm] never end
We'd sing and [G] dance for[G7]ever and a [C] day
We'd live the [Dm] life we choose we'd fight and [Am] never lose
For we were [E7] young and sure to have our [Am] way
[Am] La la la [A7] la la la [Dm] la la la
Those were the [E7] days oh yes those were the [Am] days
[Am] Then the busy years went rushing by us
We [A7] lost our starry notions on the [Dm] way
[Dm] If by chance I'd see you in the [Am] tavern
We'd [B7] smile at one another and we'd [E7] say
Chorus

[Am] Just tonight I stood before the tavern
[A7] Nothing seemed the way it used to [Dm] be
[Dm] In the glass I saw a strange re[Am]flection
[B7] Was that lonely woman really [E7] me

Chorus
[Am] Through the door there came familiar laughter
I [A7] saw your face and heard you call my [Dm] name
[Dm] Oh my friend we're older but no [Am] wiser
For [B7] in our hearts the dreams are still the [E7] same
