F                                C
Back when gas was thirty cents a gallon
G                                C
America was young and strong and brave
F                                  C
Lord knows that I didn't have much money
G
And my old car had seen some better days

F                                     C
You were young and fresh as brand new roses
G                               C
I was so in love and strong and brave
F                                C
Back when gas was thirty cents a gallon
G                              C
And love was only sixty cents away


Chorus:
G                                 F   C
I don't think I'd know you if I'd see you
  F              C               G
I practice my forgetting till it works
F                                C
Back when gas was thirty cents a gallon
  G                          C
I didn't know the meaning of hurt


Back when gas was thirty cents a gallon
And sweet magnolias line those country roads
We burned a tank of love most every weekend
And on work days I helped 'em fix the roads

My friends were many and our dreams were certain
Whoever thought we'd go our separate ways
Back when gas was thirty cents a gallon
And love was only sixty cents away

Chorus


Back when gas was thirty cents a gallon
And love was only sixty cents away
