The way it was

*Intro: E - C#m - G#m - A - B (x2)


E                      C#m        G#m   A B
  I drove through the desert last night
E                C#m                G#m   A B
  I carried the weight of our last fight
 E                      C#m                 G#m
Elvis singing "Don't be Cruel" and I wonder if you feel it too
      A                B
It's like we're going under.
C#m                       F#m                     G#m
   Somewhere outside the lonely Esmeralda County line,
                    A                 B
The question of my heart came to my mind:

        A        E
If I go on with you by my side,
       A   E       B             A
Can it be the way it was when we met?
          E                     B
Did you forget all about those golden nights?

E             C#m              G#m   A B
  Maybe if thieves stole your heart
E             C#m           G#m
  Or maybe we just drifted apart.
     A       B
I remember driving 
E               C#m                   G#m
  In my daddy's car to the airfield, blanket on the hood, 
 A                 B
Backs against the windshield.
C#m                          F#m                           G#m
   Back then this thing was running on momentum, love and trust.
                   A            B
That paradise is buried in the dust.


        A        E
If I go on with you by my side,
       A   E       B             A
Can it be the way it was when we met?
          E                     B
Did you forget all about those golden nights?
(The way it was, it was)

F#m                               C#m
   All of our plans are falling through.
F#m                                  B A
   Sometimes a dream, it don't come true.

A - E - B (X2)

    A     E
Darling. Darling
                    A
(If we go on can it be)
       A   E      B               A
Can it be the way it was when we met?
          E                     B
Did you forget all about them golden nights?

        A        E
If I go on with you by my side,
       A   E      B
Can it be the way it was?
             A                E
My heart is true, girl, it's just you
             B 
I'm thinking of
       A              E
Can it be the way it was?

C#m - G#m - A - B

E         C#m              G#m  A  B
 (Maybe thieves stole your heart.)

*Outro: E - C#m - G#m - A - B (x2)

small change on "Or maybe we just drifted apart" should be E-B-C#. Thanks for uploading.
