The track "7 Years" appeared from nowhere in 2015 and thanks to the catchy melodies and emotive lyrics, caught the attention of the world and topped the charts globally.

The letter notes below were really fun to work out, if you can get rhythm right it sounds just like the actual tune - I nearly managed to play along at full speed :D I hope you enjoy playing it too :)

 

^G   ^F  ^F  ^D-^F  ^C   Bb
Once I was seven years old

G    ^D-^F   ^C    Bb
My momma told me

G      ^C     ^C-^C      ^C        ^C
Go make yourself some friends

^C   ^C   Bb  ^D-^C-Bb
Or you'll be lonely   ~

^G  ^F  ^F   ^D-^F   ^C   Bb
Once I was seven years old

 

Bb Bb ^C  ^D ^C   Bb
It  was  a  big  big  world

Bb   Bb    ^C       ^D    ^F    ^C-Bb
But we thought we were bigger

Bb-Bb    ^C   ^D-^C   Bb ^C  ^D-^C
Pushing  each  other  to  the  limits

Bb   ^C     ^D-^F    ^C - Bb
We were learning quicker

 

Bb ^C-^D-^C  Bb-^C  ^D
By   eleven   smoking   herb

^C    Bb-^C    ^D-^F   ^C-Bb
And drinking burning liquor

Bb-^C  ^D  ^C  Bb   ^C    ^D
Never  rich  so  we  were  out

^C   Bb   ^C   ^D-^F  ^C-Bb
To make that steady figure

 

^G  ^G  ^F  ^F-^D-^F  ^C   Bb
Once  I  was  eleven  years  old

G   ^D-^F  ^C  Bb
My daddy told me

G   ^C  ^C-^C  ^C  ^C
Go get yourself a wife

^C  ^C   Bb  ^D-^C-Bb
Or you'll be lonely  ~

^G  ^G  ^F  ^F-^D-^F  ^C   Bb
Once  I  was  eleven  years  old

 

Bb Bb-^C  ^D  ^C   Bb
I always had that dream

Bb  ^C ^D-^D  ^F-^C  Bb
Like my daddy before me

Bb ^C ^D-^C  Bb-^C  ^D
So  I  started  writing  songs

^C Bb-^C  ^D-^F  ^C-Bb
I  started  writing  stories

 

Bb - Bb    ^C-^D  ^C  ^C-Bb
Something about that glory

Bb    Bb-^C      ^D    ^F   ^C    Bb
Just always seemed to bore me

Bb   Bb-^C  ^D  ^C  Bb-^C ^D
Cause only those I really love

^C  Bb-^C  ^D-^F   ^C   Bb
Will  ever  really  know  me

 

^G  ^F  ^F  ^D-^F  ^C   Bb
Once  I  was  20  years  old

G   ^D-^F  ^C  Bb
My story got told

G-^D   ^C   ^C-^C    ^C
Before the morning sun

^C        ^C   Bb  ^D-^C-Bb
When life was lonely   ~

^G  ^F  ^F  ^D-^F  ^C   Bb
Once  I  was  20  years  old

 

Bb Bb-^C  ^D  ^C   Bb
I   only   see   my   goals

Bb   Bb   ^C-^D  ^F-^C   Bb
I   don't   believe   in   failure

Bb    ^C   ^D   ^C    Bb-^C   ^D-^C
Cause I know the smallest voices

Bb    ^C   ^D   ^F  ^C-Bb
They can make it major

 

Bb  Bb ^C ^D-^C   Bb   ^C
I   got   my   boys   with   me

Bb  Bb    ^D   ^F   ^C-Bb
At least those in favour

Bb   Bb  Bb  ^C  ^D   ^C-Bb  ^C  ^D
And if we don't meet before I leave

^C  Bb ^C  ^D  ^F  ^C-Bb
I  hope  I'll  see  you  later

 

^G  ^F  ^F  ^D-^F  ^C   Bb
Once  I  was  20  years  old

G   ^D-^F  ^C  Bb
My story got told

I was writing bout everything

^C ^C  Bb-^D  ^C-Bb
I   saw   before   me

^G  ^F  ^F  ^D-^F  ^C   Bb
Once  I  was  20  years  old

 

^G    ^F   ^F   ^D-^F  ^C  ^Bb
Soon  we'll  be  30  years  old

Our songs have been sold

G           ^D-^C     ^C-^C    ^C    ^C
We've travelled around the world

^C    ^C      Bb     ^D-^C-^Bb
And  we're  still  roaming  ~

I'm  still  learning  about  life

Bb   Bb - Bb     ^C       ^D-^F     ^C   Bb
My woman brought children for me

Bb Bb ^C ^D   ^C     Bb    ^C   ^D
So  I  can  sing  them  all  my  songs

^C  Bb ^C  ^D    ^F    ^C-Bb
And  I  can  tell  them  stories

 

Bb   Bb  ^C  ^D   ^C    Bb   Bb
Most of my boys are with me

Bb      Bb   Bb  ^C  ^D-^F  ^C-Bb
Some are still out seeking glory

Bb    Bb  ^C  ^D  ^C  Bb  ^C-^D
And some I had to leave behind

My brother, I'm still sorry

Your life becomes a better one

 

Bb Bb  ^C  ^D  ^C  Bb-Bb
I  made  a  man  so  happy

Bb    Bb    Bb   ^C  ^D-^C   Bb
When  I  wrote  a  letter  once

Once or twice a month
