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

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

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

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
