About this tab version
To extend the chord information throughout the whole song - so when a band is playing along someone unfamiliar with it doesn't have to see the top to know the chord progression through the rest of the lyrics. Was this info helpful? Yes No
Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
There is a pretty good version of this already.  I'm just flushing it out so you don't have to scroll back 
to the top if you can't remember the progression.

Intro:  G   Am   G   Am   G   Am   G   Am   

Verse1:
G                    Am 
Well, I lived on the outskirts of town
G                Am 
In an eight room farm-house, baby
G                    Am
When my brothers and friends were around
G                Am 
There was always something doin’
Em                      Bm 
Had me a couple of real nice girlfriends
Am                   C 
Stopped by to see me once in a while
Em                  Bm    
When I think back a-bout those days
Am              C                G 
All I can do is sit and smile

Chorus:
G             Am 
That’s when a smoke was a smoke
G                Am 
And groovin’ was groovin’
G                 Am
And dancin’ meant everything
G                 Am   
We were young and we were improvin’
G                   Am
Laughin’, laughin’, with our friends
G                   Am 
Holdin’ hands meant somethin’, baby
G                 Am 
Outside the club Cherry Bomb,
G               Am
Our hearts were really thumpin’,
Am            G       Am/Am-/Am (quickly)
Say yeah, yeah, yeah
(no chord)           G Am
Say yeah, yeah, yeah 


Verse2:
G               Am
The winter days they last forever
G               Am
But the weekends went by so quick
G               Am
Went ridin’ around this little country town
G               Am
We were goin’ nuts girl, out in the sticks
Em                    Bm
One night, me with my big mouth
Am                          C
A couple guys had to put me in my place
Em                    Bm
When I see those guys these days
Am                     C
We just laugh and say, Do you remember when?

Chorus:
G             Am 
That’s when a smoke was a smoke
G                Am 
And groovin’ was groovin’
G                 Am
And dancin’ meant everything
G                 Am   
We were young and we were improvin’
G                   Am
Laughin’, laughin’, with our friends
G                   Am 
Holdin’ hands meant somethin’, baby
G                 Am 
Outside the club Cherry Bomb,
G               Am
Our hearts were really thumpin’,
Am            G       Am/Am-/Am (quickly)
Say yeah, yeah, yeah
(no chord)           G Am
Say yeah, yeah, yeah 


1/2 length intrumental chorus 


Verse3:
G                  Am
Now, seventeen has turned thirty-five
G                  Am
I’m surprised that we’re still livin’
G              Am        
If we’ve done any wrong
G              Am
I hope that we’re forgiven
Em              Bm
Got a few kids of my own
Am              C
And some days I still don’t know what to do
Em               Bm
I hope that they’re not laughin’ too loud
Am               C
When they hear me talkin’ like this to you

Chorus:
G             Am 
That’s when a smoke was a smoke
G                Am 
And groovin’ was groovin’
G                 Am
And dancin’ meant everything
G                 Am   
We were young and we were improvin’
G                   Am
Laughin’, laughin’, with our friends
G                   Am 
Holdin’ hands meant somethin’, baby
G                 Am 
Outside the club Cherry Bomb,
G               Am
Our hearts were really thumpin’,
Am            G       Am/Am-/Am (quickly)
Say yeah, yeah, yeah
(no chord)           G Am
Say yeah, yeah, yeah
