Official Music Video


To make Paul’s singing sound younger, the rpm of the recorded tape was increased.
As a result, the key was raised a semitone higher than when recorded, from C to Db.

Title: When I'm Sixty Four
Artist: The Beatles
Words & Music By: Lennon/ McCartney

[Verse 1]
When I get older losing my hair,
Many years from now.
Will you still be sending me a Valentine.
Birthday greetings bottle of wine.
If I'd been out till quarter to three.
C7                   F
Would you lock the door.
F       Fm               C      A
Will you still need me, will you still feed me,
D       G       C
When I'm sixty-four.
Am               E
You'll be older too,
Am              Dm     Em
And if I say the word,
F       G       C      G
I could stay with you.
[Verse 2]
I could be handy, mending a fuse
When your lights have gone.
You can knit a sweater by the fireside
Sunday morning go for a ride,
Doing the garden, digging the weeds,
C7              F
Who could ask for more.
F       Fm              C       A
Will you still need me, will you still feed me
D       G7      C
When I'm sixty-four.
Every summer we can rent a cottage,
              G                 Am
In the Isle of Wight, if it's not too dear
We shall scrimp and save
Am               Dm         Em
Grandchildren on your knee
F       G                C    G
Vera, Chuck and Dave
[Verse 3]
Send me a postcard, drop me a line,
Stating point of view.
Indicate precisely what you mean to say
Yours sincerely, Wasting Away.
[Verse 3]
Give me your answer, fill in a form
C7           F
Mine for evermore
F              Fm       C              A
Will you still need me, will you still feed me,
D         G     C
When I'm sixty-four?

C         F     G   C  G  C
