That Was Us  Adam Brand

[C] [F] [G]  
[C] [F] [G]  
Twenty doll[C]ars out of momma's purse bo[F]ught us a tank of gas[C]
And a pack of tobacco wh[F]en, we was just teenage kids.[C] [G]
[C]Me and Jack and Danny we'd [F]go driving round[C]
If there was trouble to be found[F], heh, then we found it quick.[C]
Cuttin' donuts[Am] in the fields ‘ti[G]ll old man Smith would call[C] the cops
And he'd come running out [Am]with a shotgun ‘cause we wa[G]s
[C]Running down his crops.
And I[Dm] reckon he's still wonderin[Em] who that was,[F] [G]
That was us.
Some of these local boy[C]s moved on but we never chan[F]ged a bit[C]
Never had a scrap of [F]sense, at least that's what some folks said.[C] [G]
Yeah we finall[C]y turned old enough to b[F]uy our own beer[C]
Don't remember about that year[F], just lucky that were not dead.[C]
‘Cause somebody [Am]said they saw some[G] boys with a ute looked jus[C]t like mine
Trying to pull down that o[Am]ld water tank that sits out[G] by the railway line.[C]
People wonde[Dm]r why it leans the wa[Em]y it does.[F] [G]
That was us.
Seems like sma[Am]ll towns never change but thing[G]s get tough when times get hard[C]
And they say w[Am]hen he got sick, old man [G]Smith would have lost t[C]hat farm
‘Cause he was getting w[Am]ay behind on all h[G]is bills[C]
But someone ca[Am]me and brought his crops in from the fi[G]elds[C]
[Dm]Yeah folks ‘round here still don't know who[Em] that was[F] [G]
That was us.
Cuttin' donut[Am]s in the fields ‘t[G]ill old man Smith would cal[C]l the cops
And he'd come running out [Am]with a shotgun ‘cause we wa[G]s
[C]Running down his crops.
[Am]Somebody said they saw some bo[G]ys with a ute looked just like [C]mine
Trying to pull d[Am]own that old water tank tha[G]t sits out by the railway lin[C]e.
That was us[C] [F] [G]
Yeah that was us.[C] [F] [G] [C] [G]
