Written By: Ian Tyson

Verse 1.
A
If I could roll back the years
          D
Back when I was young and limber
          A
Loose as ashes in the wind
          Bm           E
I had no irons in the fire
        C#m
I could ride them wild young broncos
     D
The adrenaline came quickly
      A
And Juanita down at Mona's
        E            A
Was my only hearts desire

Verse 2.
A
We were living for the moment
         D
And the sunlight on my silver bits
     A
The ringing of my jinglebobs
         Bm          E
Was the music of my soul
        C#m
In the alley back of Mona's
        D
I held Juanita in the shadows
        A
How we held on to each other
         E              A
And the lovin' that we stole

Chorus:
A        Bm             E
And the sighing of the pines
    A
Up here near the timberline
          D
Makes me wish I'd done things different
                              A
Oh, but wishing don't make it so
        Bm                 E
Oh the time has passed so quick
     A
The years all run together now
       D
Did I hold Juanita yesterday
                    E
Was it fifty years ago

(Instrumental � A    D    A     E     A)

Verse 3.

If I would have quit them broncos
She might have quit that business
But that was back in the fast days
You know before the wire
I bet I could still find her
Bet she's still as pretty
As when she's Juanita down at Mona's
And my only heart's desire
