[C C] When I'm old and losing my hair, many years from [G7 G7] now,
Will you still be sending me a Valentine? Birthday Greetings, [C C] bottle of wine?
If I'd been out to quarter to three, [C7 C7] would you lock the [F F] door?
Will you still [Fm Fm] need me, [C C] will you still [A A] feed me, [D D] When I'm [G7 G7] sixty- [C C] four?

[Am Am] [G G] [Am Am]

[Am Am] You'll be older, [E E] too
[Am Am] And if you [Dm Dm] say the word,
[F F] I could [G G] stay with [C C] you [G G]

[C C] I could be handy mending a fuse, when your lights have [G7 G7] gone.
You can knit a sweater by the fireside, Sunday mornings [C C] go for a ride.
Doing the garden, digging the weeds, [C7 C7] Who could ask for [F F] more?
Will you still [Fm Fm] need me, [C C] will you still [A A] feed me, [D D] When I'm [G7 G7]sixty- [C C] four?

[Am Am] Ev'ry summer we could rent a cottage in the Isle of [G G] Wight, if it's not too [Am Am] dear
[Am Am] We shall scrimp and [E E] save
[Am Am] Grandchildren [Dm Dm] on your knee
[F F] Vera, [G G] Chuck, and [C C] Dave [G G]

[C C] Send me a post-card, drop me a line, stating point of [G7 G7] view
Indicate precisely what you mean to say, Yours sincerely [C C] wasting away
Give me your answer fill in a form, [C7 C7] Mine forever [F F] more
Will you still [Fm Fm] need me, [C C] will you still [A A] feed me, [D D] when I'm [G7 G7] sixty- [C C] four?

It's in a different key than the original, but it sounds perfect in relation to itself.

About this song

"When I'm Sixty-Four" is a love song by The Beatles, written by Paul McCartney (but co-credited to John Lennon) and released in 1967 on their album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. It is sung by a young man to his lover, and is about his plans of growing old together with her. Although the theme is about aging, it was one of the first songs McCartney wrote, when he was sixteen.
