Nana and Jimi  Dave Alvin

[Em7] [A7]  
[A7]My mother told me be a good boy,
And don't do nothing wrong,
And she'd [D]wrapped up the sandwich,
For me to [C]take [A7]along
Cause I was [G]gonna see Jimi,
[D]Nothing's gonna be the [A7]same.
[A7]She drove us crosstown in her old chevy,
She parked and waited for us outside,
She said [D]be careful honey of
these crazy [C]people [A7]inside,
Cause I was [G]gonna see Jimi,
And [D]nothing's gonna be the [A7]same.
[Em7] [Am7] [G] [D] [A7]  
[A7]Now there was Police at the front door,
And there were Police on the stage,
But to a [D]twelve year old boy,
It was all cool [C]and [A7]straight,
Cause I was [G]gonna see Jimi,
And [D]nothing's gonna be the [A7]same.
[A7]The lights were dimming, people were shouting,
And I forgot about my Mom in the car,
When he [D]walked out on stage
And plugged in his [A7]guitar,
Cause I was [G]gonna see Jimi,
And [D]nothing's gonna be the [A7]same
I was [G]gonna see Jimi,
And [D]nothing's gonna [C]be the [A]same[Em7]. [A7]
