E A B A

E A

[Verse]

E                                   A                         B   A
The VCR and the DVD - there wasn't none of that crap back in 1970
E      
We didn't know about a World Wide Web
       A                                 B           A
Was a whole different game being played back when I was a kid
E
Wanna get down in a cool way?
A                            B      A
Picture yourself on a beautiful day
E
Big Bell Bottoms and groovy, long hair
        A                           B
Just a-walking in style with a portable CD player - No!

[Chorus]

                                     E
You would listen to the music on the AM Radio
A                B         A         E        A  B  A
Yeah, you could hear the music on the AM Radio

[Verse]

E
Flashback to '72
         A                                   B               A
Another summer in the neighborhood, hanging out with nothing to do
E                                       A
Sometimes we'd go driving around in my sister's Pinto
          B                A      E
Cruising with the windows rolled down
                                            A
We'd listen to the radio station - we were too damn poor 
           B           A
to buy the 8-track tape
E
It wasn't then a good time to want to be inside
    A                           B           C#m
My momma want to watch that TV all goddamn night
                             F#m
I'd be in bed with the radio on
                                A                             B
I would listen to it all night long just to hear my favorite song
                                                 E
You'd have to wait but you could hear it on the AM Radio

[Chorus]

A                B              A     E
Yeah, you could hear the music on the AM Radio
       A                     B               A     E
I can still hear momma say, "Boy, turn that radio down!"
                    A
Aww, mom, not that show again!
         B           A    E
I don't wanna watch that show
                              A                                   B  A
Can't we watch Good Times or Chico And The Man or something cool?
         B
Turn it off!

[Verse]

E
Things changed back in '75
         A                        B          A
We were all growing up on the in and the outside
E 
We got in trouble with the police man
        A                                 B            A
We got busted getting high in the back of my friend's van
E
I remember 1977
           A                              B        A
I started going to concerts and I saw the Led Zeppelin
E
I got a guitar on Christmas day
                A                              B                     C#m
I dreamed that Jimmy Page would come to Santa Monica and teach me to play
            F#m
Teach me to play
             A
Teach me to play
C#m                                  F#m             
There isn't any place that I need to go
                                     A                               B   
There isn't anything that I need to know I did not learn from the radio

[Interlude]

E Em

[Outro]

N.C.
Yeah, when things get stupid and I just don't know where to find my Happy
         B             A      E       A
I listen to the music on the AM Radio
           B             A      E        A
You could hear the music on the AM Radio
           B             A      E
You could hear the music on the AM Radio
E
I like Pop, I like Soul
A
I like Rock
        B           A      E
But, I never liked Disco
