Child Of The 50s-crd  Statler Brothers

[C]I grew up a [F]child of the [C]50s
Learned to dance to the [F]beat of rock & [G]roll
Tele[F]vision was my [C]friend
I Love [C7]Lucy, Rin Tin [F]Tin
Kissed my [C]first girl when [G7]I was 10 years [C]old

Verse 2 (Phil):
Took a turn for the worse in the 60s
Saw some real people die on TV
I learned love's hard cold facts
Paid my first income tax
One small step for the man I'm gonna be

I'll never feel bad 'bout the [F]times that we [C]had
I'll [F]never look [C]back in re[G]gret
The [C]heaven you gave I will [F]treasure & [D7]save
'Cause it [F]might be as [G7]close as I [C]get

(key shifts to F)

Verse 3 (Lew):
F Bm F...etc.
The 70s were 10 years of reruns
News of Watergate was nothin' new
The Democrats got it, we fell in love again
When Elvis died, we all knew that we could too

Verse 4 (Harold):
Now I'm facin' the most of the 80s
Old enough to run for President
It's hard to think it's me, the father of 3
Oh America, I don't know where it went

(chorus, then repeat its last 2 lines)
