19 Somethin  Mark Wills

I saw [D]Star Wars at [A]least 8 times
Had the [Bm]Pac-Man pattern [A]memorized
[G]I've seen the stuff they put inside [A]Stretch Arm[D]strong, yeah

[D]   [F#m]     [G]   [-]   [G]   [F#m]     [D]              I was [D]Roger Staubach in [A]my backyard
Had a [Bm]shoebox full of b[A]aseball cards
And a [G]couple of Evil Kenievel scars on [A]my right [D]arm
[Bm]Well, I was a [A]kid when Elvis [Em7]died and my m[G]omma cried  [A]

Chorus 1:
[D]It was 19[A]70 somethin' [G]in the world that [D]I grew up in
[Bm]Farrah Fawcett h[A]airdo days, [Em]bell b[F#m]ottoms and [G]8 track t[A]apes
[D]Looking back now [A]I can see me, [G]oh man did [D]I look cheesy
[Em]I wouldn't t[D/F#]rade those days f[G]or nothin'  A[A]ww, it was 1970 somethi[D]n'

[D]   [F#m]     [G]  [-]   [G]   [F#m]     [D]                
It was the [D]dawning of a [A]new decade
[Bm]We got our first m[A]icrowave
[G]Dad broke down and finally shaved them old sideb[A]urns o[D]ff
I took the [D]stickers off my [A]Rubix cube
Watched [Bm]MTV all a[A]fternoon
[G]My first love was Daisy Duke in them c[A]utoff j[D]eans
[Bm]Space shuttle [A]fell out of the [Em7]sky and the w[G]hole world cried  [A]

Chorus 2:
It was 1980 somethin' in the world that I grew up in
Skating rinks and black Trans-Am's, big hair and parachute pants
Looking back now I can see me, oh man did I look cheesy
I wouldn't trade those days for nothin' Aww, It was 1980 somethin'


Solo: D G D


[G]Now I got a mortgage and an [D]SUV
But all this re[Em7]sponsibilty makes me w[G]ish sometimes...[A]
REPEAT CHORUS 2


[D]   [F#m]     [G]  [-]  [G]   [F#m]     [D] 1970 somethin'   [D]   [F#m]     [G]  [-]  [G] Aww[F#m], it [D]was 19 somethin'
