A Good Time

John Prine

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

 DGD
 Time was once just a clock to me
 DGA
And life was just a book a biography
 DGD
 Success was something you just had to be
 DGA
And I would spend myself unknowingly

 GAD
And you know that I could have me a million more friends
 DA
 And all Id have to lose is my point of view
 DG
But I had no idea what a good time would cost
 AD
Till last night when I sat and talked with you.

 DGD
 An apple will spoil if its been abused
 DGA
candle disappears when its been used
 DGD
rainbow may follow up a hurricane
 DGA
And I cant leave forever on a train

 GAD
And you know that Id survive if I never spoke again
 DA
 And all Id have to lose is my vanity
 DG
But I had no idea what a good time would cost
 AD
Till last night when you sat and talked with me.

 DGD
You can smile for the lack of something else to do
 DGA
And no one will laugh and point at you
 DGD
If your tears didnt always make me feel so bad
 DGA
 Would you still cry every time that you felt sad?

 GAD
thought Id heard and seen enough to get along
 DA
 Till you said something neither of us knew
 DG
And I had no idea what a good time would cost
 ADAD
Till last night when I sat and talked with you.
