The most of what is least    (video)

 

    C - Dm - G    - C - F - Em - G

 

             C                  F                   C

1. I'm staring at the setting of the sun,

               C                          F                  Em

    for I know my time with you is nearly gone.

                     F                            G                    C                     Am

    And my minutes, they're so precious, yes, each and every one,

             F                        G                    C

    as I try to make the most of what is least.

 

                 C                  F                    C

2. I've a weary kind of feeling in my mind,

         C                  F                     Em

    I'll try to look ahead and not behind.

                 F             G               C               Am

    And I know that you don't mean to be unkind,

             F                       G                     C

    as I try to make the most of what is least.

 

             C                       F                         C

3. The rain is dripping down my window pane,

           C                               F                                Em

    and if you come back to me, it wouldn't be the same.

          F                       G               C               Am

    I know the end is near and I'll try to battle on,

             F                       G                     C

    as I try to make the most of what is least.
