When (D)I was (C#m)only (Bm)seventeen,(A) (D)couldn't (C#m)wait for (Bm)twenty (A)one
I'd (D)hang a-(C#m)round on (Bm)Clayton Street (A) in the (D)bars there, (C#m)gettin' drunk (Bm) (A)
A (D)baseball (C#m)cap and a (Bm)fake ID (A) would (D)get me (C#m)in the (Bm)clubs (A)
Then (D)I would (C#m)dance with the (Bm)college girls (A) and (D)lie about (C#m)who I was (Bm) (A)

I'd say, (D)"I'm pre-(C#m)med here at (Bm)UGA, (A) live on (D)Milledge (C#m)Avenue (Bm) (A)
I was (D)raised o-(C#m)ver in (Bm) Buckhead, I (A)drive a (D) B(C#m)MW" (Bm) (A)

Stealin' (D)kisses (F#m)wishin' (Em)I was (A)twenty one (D) (C#m) | (Bm) (A) | (G) (Bm) | (A)  |

Up-(D)stairs at (C#m)Lowry's (Bm)Tavern, (A)we'd pay a (D)nickel for (C#m) the (Bm)beer (A)
(D)Shootin' pool, (C#m) smokin' (Bm)cigarettes (A) with a (D)dizzy head (C#m) and a grin (Bm) (A)
(D)Four A.M. (C#m) on a (Bm)school night, (A) still (D)hangin' out (C#m)with my friends (Bm) (A)

One (D)hour sleep (C#m) on a (Bm)dirty coach, (A) no (D)shower off (C#m) to school (Bm) (A)
(D)Smellin' just (C#m) like a (Bm)brewery (A) with a bad (D) hang-(C#m)over too (Bm) (A)
The (G)teachers all (F#m) would (Em)hassle me, (A) "Stay a-(D)wake Pay Attent-(G)ion"
I was (G)catchin' hell (F#m) wishin' (Em)I was (A)twenty one (D) (C#m) | (Bm) (A) | (G) (Bm) | (A)  |

The (F#m)youngest one (A) of (G)all my friends, (F#m) I (Em)didn't act (A)my a-(D)ge
(F#m)Too cool (A)for the foot-(G)ball games (F#m) and the (G)home comin' parades (A)
Now (G)I look back (F#m) and (Em)have to smile, (A) 'cause (D)boy, it was (G)fun
Being (G)seventeen (F#m) wishin' (Em)I was (A)twenty one

        | (D) (C#m) | (Bm) (A) | (G) (Bm) | (A)  |

(D)Now I'm (C#m)only (Bm)twenty six (A) feeling (D)more like (C#m) forty three (Bm) (A)
My (D)hairline's (C#m)disappear-(Bm)in' (A) and I (D)never get (C#m)ID'ed (Bm) (A)
My (D)clothes are (C#m)out of (Bm)fashion, (A) no, I'm (D)not cool (C#m)anymore (Bm) (A)
In the (D)bed by (C#m)ten o'clock (Bm)each night, (A) and (D)up at half (C#m)past four (Bm) (A)

Still (D)I go down (C#m) to that (Bm)college town (A) when the (D)Bulldogs (C#m)play at home (Bm) (A)
I drink (D)keg beer (C#m)from a trash (Bm) can (A)'till the whole (D) damn (C#m)thing is gone (Bm) (A)
Then I (G)look at all (F#m) those (Em)college girls (A) so (D)innocent and (G)young
