G             C                D
High School seemed like such a blur
G                    C         D
I didn't have much interest in sports or school election
G              C            D
and in class I dreamed all day
G                   C      D
'bout a rock & roll weekend.


G        C       D
Life goes by so fast
G              C                     D
you only wanna do whatcha think is right.
G           C            D
Close your eyes and its past.
G           C          D
Story of my liiiiiiiiiife.

[Verse 1]

Well I went downtown to look for a job
I had no training no experience to speak of
and I looked at the holes in my jeans
and turned and headed back.

Well I went down to the old neighborhood
the faces had all changed nobody left to talk to
and the pool hall I loved as a kid
is now a 7/11.


Good time come and good times go.
I only wish the good times would last a little longer.
I was thinking of the good times we had
and why they had to end...........
So I sit at the edge of my bed
I strum my guitar and I sing an outlaw love song.
Thinking of what your doing now
and when your coming back.

There are two D's instead of just one, but otherwise perfect. Oh, another thing, Mike always tunes 1/2 step down and on this song he capoed the 2nd fret.

You're missing half of the first verse, after rock 'n roll weekend it goes:

And the girl in the front of the room
So close yet so far y'know she never seemed to notice
That this silly schoolboy crush
Wasn't just pretend

Sorry?? Wha??? I'm a bit confused. Tune down half a step AND capo on the second fret??

Any reason why not just place the capo at the first fret?
