Cherry Bomb  John Cougar Mellencamp

[G]Well, I lived on the [Am]outskirts of town
[G]In an eight room [Am]farm-house, baby
[G]When my brothers and [Am]friends were around
[G]There was always [Am]something doin�
[Em]Had me a couple of real [Bm]nice girlfriends
[Am]Stopped by to see me [C]once in a while
[Em]When I think back a-[Bm]bout those days
[Am]All I can do is [C]sit and smile    [G]
[G]That�s when a [Am]smoke was a smoke
[G]And groovin� was [Am]groovin�
[G]And dancin� meant [Am]everything
[G]We were young and [Am]we were improvin�
[G]Laughin�, laughin�, [Am]with our friends
[G]Holdin� hands meant [Am]somethin�, baby
[G]Outside the club C[Am]herry Bomb,
[G]Our hearts were [Am]really thumpin�,
Am G Am/Am-/Am (quickly)
Say yeah, yeah, yeah
(no chord) G Am
Say yeah, yeah, yeah

The winter days they last forever
But the weekends went by so quick
Went ridin� around this little country town
We were goin� nuts girl, out in the sticks
One night, me with my big mouth
A couple guys had to put me in my place
When I see those guys these days
We just laugh and say, Do you remember when?

Repeat chorus

1/2 length intrumental chorus

Now, seventeen has turned thirty-five
I�m surprised that we�re still livin�
If we�ve done any wrong
I hope that we�re forgiven
Got a few kids of my own
And some days I still don�t know what to do
I hope that they�re not laughin� too loud
When they hear me talkin� like this to you

Repeat chorus

Suggested chords:
    [Em]    [G]   [Am]    [Am-]     [C]    [Bm]
