19 Somethin

Mark Wills

 DA
I saw Star Wars at least 8 times
 BmA
Had the Pac-Man pattern memorized
 GAD
 I've seen the stuff they put inside Stretch Armstrong, yeah

 DF#mG-GF#mDDA
                                     I was Roger Staubach in my backyard
 BmA
Had a shoebox full of baseball cards
 GAD
And a couple of Evil Kenievel scars on my right arm
 BmAEm7GA
 Well, I was a kid when Elvis died and my momma cried   

Chorus 1:
 DAGD
 It was 1970 somethin' in the world that I grew up in
 BmAEmF#mGA
 Farrah Fawcett hairdo days, bell bottoms and 8 track tapes
 DAGD
 Looking back now I can see me, oh man did I look cheesy
 EmD/F#GAD
 I wouldn't trade those days for nothin'  Aww, it was 1970 somethin'

 DF#mG-GF#mD
 DA
It was the dawning of a new decade
 BmA
 We got our first microwave
 GAD
 Dad broke down and finally shaved them old sideburns off
 DA
I took the stickers off my Rubix cube
 BmA
Watched MTV all afternoon
 GAD
 My first love was Daisy Duke in them cutoff jeans
 BmAEm7GA
 Space shuttle fell out of the sky and the whole world cried   

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

 GD
 Now I got a mortgage and an SUV
 Em7GA
But all this responsibilty makes me wish sometimes... 

REPEAT CHORUS 2

 DF#mG-GF#mDDF#mG-GF#mD
                      1970 somethin'                Aww, it was 19 somethin'

 DF#mG-GF#mD
