Forty Years Ago  Jamey Johnson

Forty Years Ago
By Jamey Johnson
Capo 2
[D]Gasoline was just a dime a [G]gallon
[D]They bring milk right up to your [G]door
[D]At least that's the way my [C]Paw Paw said it [G]was
[Bm]About [A]40 years a[D]go[G]
An old box car was the way to travel
He said, You could see the world in a week or so
And who had the biggest house or the fastest car or the best clothes didn't matter
Just 40 years ago
But the [C]winds of change have [G]blown that time a[D]way
[C]You wont find that s[G]pirit a[D]round these parts today
And [C]if he were here [G]right now, he'd say son,[D] You're livin to fast
[Bm]You gotta slow down and [C]pray, aww [A]stop an pray
Restaurants were all closed on Sunday
And made in the USA was the best for show
At least thats the way my Paw Paw said it was
About 40 years ago
40 years ago
40 Years ago
40 years ago
Some days I think about the way he said things were before
Ain't it just a shame things don't work the same way no more
Nowadays everybody's goin' 90 miles an hour down a dead end road
They done forgot the way things were before, just 40 years ago
