         C             
Life was simple, 
F         Am                G               C
Roger was working round the clock to make a living, 
F     Am              G                     C     
No computers, none of that, he used his two hands, 
F           Am       G
Ignored the cold war 
    C          F        Am    G
His wife would keep him warm, 
       C         F
On the weekends,  
              Am              G                  C          F
He'd load the car up with the kids and they'd go fishing, 
           Am            G                 C              F
No need to work an extra job, there's no recession, 
              Am       G
Damn right he smiled a lot 
          C       F   
They lay awake at night 
      Am
So in love 

         G
It was a good good year 

C          F
 Oh oh ohhh 
    Am            G
The kids were all right, 
C           F             Am        F
"Highway to Hell" beat up "Stayin' Alive", 
    C                 F
The songs were on the radio 
    Am               G
And mum and dad were still in love, 
   C F Am
In 1979 
         G
It was a good, good year. 


       C        F
In the morning,
      Am             G            C         F
Robin always woke up early in the kitchen, 
               Am               G                    C         F
She'd make the coffee, pack his lunch and then she'd kiss him 
             Am       F
And he would hold her tight 
     C            F   Am  G
When they were newlyweds 
         C        F
He'd say maybe 
              Am                      G            C     F
And she would laugh, they knew they'd have another baby 
      Am              G                   C         F
She'd slave away all day until dinner was ready, 
               Am       G        C       F        Am
And they would dance so slow to "Just the Way You Are". 

         G
It was a good, good year 


C          F
 Oh oh ohhh 
    Am            G
The kids were all right, 
C           F             Am        F
"Highway to Hell" beat up "Stayin' Alive",

                        G 
All the decades and the years have passed, 
F                   C              C/B
Not every family is built to last, 
Am                          C
No time can take away these memories 
                  F
Remember when you said to me 
                 G
That we'd be all right. 


C          F
 Oh oh ohhh 
    Am            G
The kids were all right, 
C           F             Am        F
"Highway to Hell" beat up "Stayin' Alive",

C          F
 Oh oh ohhh 
      Am          G
Disco couldn't survive 
         C       F        Am          G
With the Dream Police and Rock N Roll High 
C                F 
Blondie powered 'Heart of Glass'
    Am               G
And Mum & Dad bought their first house
   C F Am
In 1979 
         G          C
It was a good, good year.
