Sophomore year,

you rushed for an average of eight and a third yards per carry.
F                   F
  All eyes were on you.

Junior year, 
   C           F              F           F
you blew your knee out at an out of town game.
F                       F
   Nowhere to go to but down, down, down.
C                                F           
Nothing but the ground left for you to fall to.

by July, 
       C          F          F         F
you'd made a whole bunch of brand new friends,
F                        F
people you used to look down on.
                   C   F           F         F
And you'd figured out    a way to make real money --
       C            F               F       F
givin' ends to your friends, and it felt stupendous.
F                      F
 chrome spokes on your Japanese bike,
      G#                F
but selling acid was a bad idea,
      C                        F
and selling it to a cop was a worse one.
         C                      F                       C
And the new law said that seventeen year olds could do federal time.
F                               C                  F
  you were the first one, so I sing this song for you,
C                     F     
  William Stanaforth Donahue,
       C                        F
your grandfather rode the boat over from Ireland,
     C                F
but you made a bad decision or two.
      C F F F* C F F F (x2) C
