Intro
Bb

Bb
You can be amazing

You can turn a phrase into a weapon or a drug
Gm
You can be the outcast

Or be the backlash of somebody’s lack of love
Eb  F
Or you can start speaking up
Bb
Nothing’s gonna hurt you the way that words do

When they settle ‘neath your skin
Gm
Kept on the inside and no sunlight
                    Eb
Sometimes a shadow wins
       F
But I wonder what would happen if you

+

Bb
Say what you wanna say
Gm                     Eb
And let the words fall out
         F   
Honestly I wanna see you be brave
Bb
With what you want to say
Gm                     Eb
And let the words fall out

Honestly I wanna see you be brave

Bb
Everybody’s been there, everybody’s been stared down

By the enemy
Gm
Fallen for the fear and done some disappearing
Em
Bow down to the mighty
Eb         F
Don’t run, just stop holding your tongue
Bb
Maybe there’s a way out of the cage where you live
Gm
Maybe one of these days you can let the light in
Eb       F
Show me how big your brave is

Bb
Say what you wanna say
Gm                     Eb

Honestly I wanna see you be brave

With what you want to say
Gm                     Eb
And let the words fall out
         F
Honestly I wanna see you be brave

Gm         Bb
And since, your history of silence
Bb/D           Eb
Won’t do you any good
Bb/D          Eb
Did you think it would?
Gm                Bb
Let your words be anything but empty
Fsus                           F
Why don’t you tell them the truth?

Young At Heart: Chords and Lyrics



Frank Sinatra: Young At Heart l LadyDpiano


Johnny Richards was a jazz arranger and composer in the mid-20th century of United States. He wrote the music to Young At Heart in ©1954. Carolyn Leigh was an American lyricist and wrote the words to this beautiful song. My mother loved the famous crooner voice of Frank Sinatra and I especially like this song. I've heard it sung by other pop artists and it sounds wonderful.


Chords and Lyrics ( Young At Heart)

Key: Bb
Time: 4/4 Slowly

           Bb
Fairy tales can come true
                                 E dim      Cm7
It can happen to you if you're young at heart
             F7                 Cm7
For it's hard, you will find
           F7            F9                    Bb
To be narrow of mind if you're young at heart
               Fsus            G7           Fm6        G7
You can go to extremes with impossible schemes
    G+7    C9                        C7               C9              C7
You can laugh when your dreams fall apart at the seams
        F7         Bdim      F7    Bdim         F7        Cm7
And life gets more exciting with each passing day
F9    Bb6    F#dim  Bb6     F37      Cm7   F7
And love is either in your heart or on the way
                 Bb
Don't you know that it's worth
                                  Edim     Cm7
Every treasure on earth to be young at heart
            F7             Cm7
For as rich as you are
                F7          F9  F+9   Bb
It's much better by far to be young at heart

           Fm6                 G7         Fm6             G7 G+7
And if you should survive to a hundred and five
              C9             C7            Eb         Ebm
Look at all you'll derive out of being alive
        Bb                              F7              Cm7   F7
And here is the best part, you have a head start
Bb      Bb6       Eb6     Edim   Cm7 F9  Bb
If you are among the very young at heart

I guess if I am working my way around the chord progression to the song, I would play a few chords like this:

L.H. / R.H.

Bb = BbF/EBbD and Bb/DFA and BbBb/DFGBb
E dim = Db/BbEA
Cm7 = C/BbEbG and CF/GBb
F7 = FF/AC and F/EbFA
F9 = FEb/ACG and F/ACEbG
F+9 = FEb/AC#G

C9 = CBb/EBbD
C7 = CBb/EbAC and CBb/EAbC
Bdim = B/DFG#
Bb6 = Bb/BbDG
F#dim = C/AEbF#
Bb6 = D/BbFG

F#7 = DbBbEbF#
Fm6 = DF/CAb
G7 = GF/BC#G
G+7 = G/EbG
Eb = Eb/EbGD
Ebm = BbD/EbGbEb
Eb6 = Eb/CGBb
