G                 C                       G
Back when we were young everybody came to see us
                    D                       G      G7
Everybody wanted to be us back when we were young
                    C                             G
We loved each other so, all our friends told one another
                      D                       G
And we even told each other back when we were young

       G                               C                              G  
It was laughin' it was dancin' it was cigarettes and bourbon flavored kisses
       D                                                          G
It was alligator shoes and new blue suits and anything that money wishes
                                        C                             G
It was sittin' up all night and waitin' for the dawn to bring another wondrous day
       D                                                            G
It was holdin' hands and thinkin' that tomorrow is a million years away


It was rollin' sevens every time and thinkin' it was never ever gonna end
Back then we even thought of time itself as bein' something of a passing friend
It was buyin' one another things we didn't need and birthdays were so corny
Back then we even had some friends live as far away as California

Back when we were young
