Words & Music:


(New Christy Minstrels)


C      Am      C      Am



  C             Am             Dm7          G7

Today while the blossoms still cling to the vine

     C          C/B  Am            Dm7              G7

I'll taste your strawberries, I'll drink your sweet wine

  C         C7            F         Fm

A million tomorrows shall all pass away,

C     C/B Am          Dm7         G7        C    Am     C   Am

Ere I for-get all the joy that is mine -- today.


I'll be a dandy & I'll be a rover

You'll know who I am by the song that I sing.

I'll feast at your table, I'll sleep in your clover

Who cares what tomorrow shall bring?




I can't be contented with yesterday's glories.

I can't live on promises winter to spring.

Today is my moment & now is my story.

Who cares what tomorrow shall bring?
