[D]There were Arizona [D2]troopers [Dsus]trailin' close [D]behind.

[A]So we pulled over and [A2]showed [A]'em a Tennessee moon
D D2, Dsus, D
From the California side.
[D]L.A. was a [D2]nightmare [Dsus]Vegas was a [D]dream.
[D]Dan had won more [D2]money than [G]we had ever seen.
[A]Didn't take us one [A2]day to blow the whole [A]lot.[A2]

[Bm]But it didn't take long for the [A]real world to knock us [G]flat on the ground.
[Bm]And I hope we were forgiven for [A]all the crazy things we did.
[G]After all we were just [A]kids.

Chorus:
[D]You couldn't tell us [D2]nothin' we [Dsus]didn't already [D]know.
