Good Time Really Over For Good

Merle Haggard

 DG
I wish a buck was still silver, and it was back when the country was strong,
 A7D
Back before Elvis, and before the Vietnam war came along,
 GDG
Before the Beatles and yesterday, when a man could still work, and still would,
 A7
is the best of the free life behind us now,
 D
and Are The Good Times Really Over For Good.
 G
Are we rollin' downhill like a snowball headed for hell.
 AD
With no kind of chance for the flag or the liberty bell.
 G
I wish a Ford or a Chevy, would still last ten years like they should.
 A7
Is the best of the free life behind us now,
 D
And Are The Good Times Really Over For Good.
 DG
I wish Coke was still cola, and a joint was a bad place to be.
 A7D
It was back before Nixon lied to us all on TV.
 GDG
Before Microwave ovens, when a girl could still cook, and still would,
 A7
Is the best of the free life behind us now,
 D
and Are The Good Times Really Over For Good.
 G
Stop rollin' downhill like a snowball headed for hell.
 AD
Standup for the flag, and let's all ring the liberty bell.
 G
Let's make a Ford and a Chevy that'll still last ten years like they should.
 A7
The best of the free life is still yet to come,
 D
And the good times ain't really over for good.
