Good Time Really Over For Good  Merle Haggard

I wish a [D]buck was still silver, and it was back when the country was [G]strong,
Back before [A7]Elvis, and before the Vietnam war came a[D]long,
Before the Beatles and yesterday, when a man could [G]still [D]work, and still [G]would,
is the best of the free life be[A7]hind us now,
and Are The Good Times Really Over For [D]Good.
Are we rollin' downhill like a snowball headed for [G]hell.
With [A]no kind of chance for the flag or the liberty [D]bell.
I wish a Ford or a Chevy, would still last ten years like they [G]should.
Is the best of the free life [A7]behind us now,
And Are The Good Times Really Over For [D]Good.
I wish [D]Coke was still cola, and a joint was a bad place to [G]be.
It was [A7]back before Nixon lied to us all on [D]TV.
Before Microwave ovens, when a girl could [G]still [D]cook, and still [G]would,
Is the best of the free life b[A7]ehind us now,
and Are The Good Times Really Over For [D]Good.
Stop rollin' downhill like a snowball headed for [G]hell.
Stand[A]up for the flag, and let's all ring the liberty [D]bell.
Let's make a Ford and a Chevy that'll still last ten years like they [G]should.
The best of the free life [A7]is still yet to come,
And the good times ain't really over for [D]good.
