Harvey Andrews - The Way We Lived Then


CAPO: 4th Fret



[Intro]
Em  D  Em  D

[Verse 1]
Em                       D
Caviar on the table, Champagne in the glass 
   Em                           D
We laughed and we jeered at the poor working class 
   Em                      D
We drank to their ruin, we drank to their shame 
   G                              B7
We pissed on their problems, said they were to blame 
        Em                     D
Oh, the way we lived then, the way we lived then
    Em
The way we lived then


[Verse 2]
Em                    D
Jason wore braces and slicked his hair down 
Em                    D
Ben had the number of each deb in town 
Em                D
I was a member of every new club 
      G                    B7
And I used my gold card to pay every sub 
        Em                     D
For the way we lived then, the way we lived then
    Em
The way we lived then 


[Chorus]
                     D
Oh, the way we lived then 
                       Em
Selling Deutschmark or Yen 
                  D 
Never thinking of where did it come from 
    C                         B7
How long would it last us, or when 
                     Em                   D
Would we all have to pay for this mad holiday 
                        G                        D
For the Porsche and the Rolls that were our only goals 
                 B7
Me and Jason and Ben
                     Em    D  Em  D
Oh, the way we lived then 


[Verse 3]
Em                 D
Jason met Sarah, a girl in P.R. 
     Em                       D
They had a white wedding, all paid for by Pa 
Em                    D
Borrowed a fortune to buy their first pad 
       G                       B7
It was two hundred K, but then prices were mad 
    Em                     D
The way we lived then, the way we lived then 
    Em 
The way we lived then 


[Verse 4]
Em                             D
Jason said, three years, we'll sell and move on 
     Em                      D
Then suddenly, we turned and Maggie was gone 
Em                           D
Ben said, don't worry, she's schooled them all well
       G                         B7
So, we drank to the sending of a message to hell 
        Em                     D
Oh, the way we lived then, the way we lived then 
    Em 
The way we lived then 


[Chorus]
                     D
Oh, the way we lived then 
                       Em
Selling Deutschmark or Yen 
                  D 
Never thinking of where did it come from 
    C                         B7
How long would it last us, or when 
                     Em                   D
Would we all have to pay for this mad holiday 
                        G                        D
For the Porsche and the Rolls that were our only goals 
                 B7
Me and Jason and Ben
                     Em    D  Em  D
Oh, the way we lived then 


[Verse 5]
Em                       D
Sarah got pregnant, then Jason got fired 
Em                     D
Ben took a pay cut and I felt too tired 
Em                      D
Burnt out at thirty and sacked on the day 
    G                    B7
The repo man took my red Roller away 
        Em                     D
Oh, the way we lived then, the way we lived then
    Em
The way we lived then 

[Instrumental]
Em  D  Em  D  Em  D  C  B7


[Verse 6]
            Em                     D
Now there's bread on the table and beer in the glass 
         Em                    D
But it's merely a set back for breeding and class 
  Em                  D
Monopoly money means 'always pass go'
          G                         B7
And we'll surely pass you if you're going too slow 
          Em                 D
And we'll live it again, the way we lived then 
      Em
We'll live it again
 

[Chorus]
                    D
Yes, we'll live it again 
                       Em
Selling Deutschmark or Yen 
                     D 
Only this time we'll know where it comes from 
      C                        B7
We'll know how to keep it, and then 
                        Em                  D
We'll make someone else pay for our mad holiday 
                        G                       D
For the Porsche and the Rolls that are our only goals 
                 B7
Me and Jason and Ben
               Em    D
We'll live it again 
                 Em    D
The way we lived then 
               Em    D  Em  D  Em  D  Em  D  Em  
We'll live it again
