19 somethin

CAPO 2                             

Intro:   D  F#m  G  -  G  F#m  D   x2

      D            A  
I saw Star Wars at least 8 times
        Bm              A
Had the Pac-Man pattern memorized
G                                   A          D
I've seen the stuff they put inside Stretch Armstrong, yeah 

D  F#m  G  -  G  F#m  D
                           
      D                 A
I was Roger Staubach in my backyard
      Bm               A
Had a shoebox full of baseball cards
      G                                A        D      
And a couple of Evil Kenievel scars on my right arm
Bm            A              Em7          G           A             
Well, I was a kid when Elvis died and my momma cried 


Chorus 1:
D        A            G                 D 
It was 1970 somethin' in the world that I grew up in
Bm              A           Em    F#m        G        A                  
Farrah Fawcett hairdo days, bell bottoms and 8 track tapes
D                A             G          D 
Looking back now I can see me, oh man did I look cheesy
Em          D/F#             G            A                      D
I wouldn't trade those days for nothin'  Aww, it was 1970 somethin'

D  F#m  G -  G  F#m  D  

           D            A
It was the dawning of a new decade
Bm                A
We got our first microwave
G                                               A     D
Dad broke down and finally shaved them old sideburns off
           D               A 
I took the stickers off my Rubix cube
        Bm       A
Watched MTV all afternoon
G                                     A      D 
My first love was Daisy Duke in them cutoff jeans
Bm            A               Em7          G                 A
Space shuttle fell out of the sky and the whole world cried


Chorus 2:
It was 1980 somethin' in the world that I grew up in       
Skating rinks and black Trans-Am's, big hair and parachute pants
Looking back now I can see me, oh man did I look cheesy
I wouldn't trade those days for nothin' Aww, It was 1980 somethin'


Solo: D  G   D


G                           D
Now I got a mortgage and an SUV 
               Em7                   G               A       
But all this responsibilty makes me wish sometimes...


REPEAT CHORUS 2


D  F#m  G - G  F#m  D                 D  F#m  G - G   F#m  D
                     1970 somethin'                Aww, it was 19 somethin'

D  F#m  G - G   F#m  D

Try the "A" in the verses as an "A/C#"...otherwise, very nice!

Oh...and try it using the capo only on strings 1-5 to simulate "Drop D" tuning... ;)
