Lyrics and Chords
-----------------


Verse 1:
-------

D                          '
Goodbye to you, my trusted friend
D                                   Em
We've known each other since we were nine or ten
Em                                D           '         
Together we've climbed hills and trees
D                   [Em
Learned of love and ABCs
            A7                   ] D
Skinned our hearts and skinned our knees


D                             '
Goodbye my friend, it's hard to die
D                               Em
When all the birds are singing in the sky
Em                            D
Now that the spring is in the air
D                 Em
Pretty girls are everywhere
A7                      D
Think of me and I'll be there


Chorus:
------

        D
We had joy, we had fun
        Em
We had seasons in the sun
        A7
But the hills that we climbed
A7                       D
Were just seasons out of time


Verse 2:
-------

Goodbye papa, please pray for me
I was the black sheep of the family
You tried to teach me right from wrong
Too much wine and too much song
Wonder how I got along

Goodbye papa, it's hard to die
When all the birds are singing in the sky
Now that the spring is in the air
Little children everywhere
When you see them, I'll be there

Chorus:
------

We had joy, we had fun
We had seasons in the sun
But the wine and the song
Like the seasons, have all gone

Chorus:
------

We had joy, we had fun
We had seasons in the sun
But the wine and the song
Like the seasons, have all gone

Verse 3:
-------

Goodbye Michelle, my little one
You gave me love and helped me find the sun
And every time that I was down
You would always come around
And get my feet back on the ground

Goodbye Michelle, it's hard to die
When all the birds are singing in the sky
Now that the spring is in the air
With the flowers everywhere
I wish that we could both be there

Chorus:
------

We had joy, we had fun
We had seasons in the sun
But the stars we could reach
Were just starfish on the beach

Chorus:
------

We had joy, we had fun
We had seasons in the sun
But the stars we could reach
Were just starfish on the beach

Chorus:
------

We had joy, we had fun
We had seasons in the sun
But the wine and the song
Like the seasons, have all gone

Chorus:
------

All our lives we had fun
We had seasons in the sun
But the hills that we climbed
Were just seasons out of time
