Verse1:
--------------------

    Bm                                           E           A
The boys are grinning from the photograph
     Bm                                          E           A
It's Friday night and they're trying so hard
    Bm                                           E           A
The sun is dropping and they want to go
  Bm                                             E           A
Driving into town to see some girls they know


--------------------
Chorus:
--------------------

    E                         G
The boys, blazing on a summer night
                              D
Girls they want to watch them ride
                         F#m
Is that the way it was before?
      A
Cause I don't remember
 E                            G
Boys, friends at every bar in town
                          D
Running all the good days down
                         F#m
Is that the way it was before?
      A
Cause I don't remember

--------------------

   Bm                                                E       A
We felt like fighters when we caught the plane
 Bm                                                  E       A
Until that day we'd never heard its name
   Bm                                                E       A
We did some things we didn't understand
    Bm                                               E       A
And now we feel like strangers in our own land


--------------------
Chorus:
--------------------

    E                         G
The boys, blazing on a summer night
                              D
Girls they want to watch them fight
                         F#m
Is that the way it was before?
      A
Cause I can't remember
 E                            G
Boys, friends at every bar in town
                          D
Running all the good days down
                         F#m
Is that the way it was before?
      A                    G
Cause I can't remember


--------------------
Bridge/Outro:
--------------------

G                  D              A         G
This photograph, I hold it when I sleep
                       D        A         G
Cause people soon stop asking
                D                 A
When I cannot explain what I have seen
                   G
And at the bars in town
                E
All the boys in town
                              G
Are running all the good days down
                          E
Running all the good days down
                          G       E
Running all the good days down
                  Bm
All the good days down
