GAm
 Well, I lived on the outskirts of town
 GAm
 In an eight room farm-house, baby
 GAm
 When my brothers and friends were around
 GAm
 There was always something doin'
 EmBm
 Had me a couple of real nice girlfriends
 AmC
 Stopped by to see me once in a while
 EmBm
 When I think back a-bout those days
 AmCG
 All I can do is sit and smile     

Chorus:
 GAm
 That's when a sport was a sport
 GAm
 And groovin' was groovin'
 GAm
 And dancin' meant everything
 GAm
 We were young and we were improvin'
 GAm
 Laughin', laughin', with our friends
 GAm
 Holdin' hands meant somethin', baby
 GAm
 Outside the club Cherry Bomb,
 GAm
 Our hearts were really thumpin',
Am G Am/Am-/Am (quickly)
Say yeah, yeah, yeah
(no chord) G Am
Say yeah, yeah, yeah

Verse2:
The winter days they last forever
But the weekends went by so quick
Went ridin' around this little country town
We were goin' nuts girl, out in the sticks
One night, me with my big mouth
A couple guys had to put me in my place
When I see those guys these days
We just laugh and say, Do you remember when?

Repeat chorus

1/2 length intrumental chorus

Verse3:
Now, seventeen has turned thirty-five
I'm surprised that we're still livin'
If we've done any wrong
I hope that we're forgiven
Got a few kids of my own
And some days I still don't know what to do
I hope that they're not laughin' too loud
When they hear me talkin' like this to you

Repeat chorus
