Show Chords


(C)Sixty-Six was still a narrow two-lane highway
Harry Truman was the man who ran the (G)show
The bad Korean was was just begining
And I was just three years too young to (C)go
Country Music hadn't gone to New York City yet
And a service man was proud of what he'd (F)done
Hank and Lefty crowded ev'ry (C)jukebox
(G)That's the way it was in fifty (C)one.


(G)There's so much about the good old days I'd love to (C)tell
And there's folks around I know still remember (G)well
Slow (C)dancin' close together when a ballad played
'Cause a thing called Rock and Roll was yet to (F)come
(It was) a big year for a drive-in rest'rant (C)carhop
(G)That's the way it was in fifty (C)one.


Yeah! Hank and Lefty crowded ev'ry jukebox
Oh Lord That's the way it was in fifty one.
