Basement Days
Written by Mark Erelli
From the album, "Little Vigils" (2010) 

INTRO:  G,D,G,D,G,D,A 2X

VERSE:1
D         A           G                   D
Timmy played bass and his brother had a Mexican Strat
D      A                 G                                 D
I was on drums and couldn't find the one but I only sang a little flat 
G                    A
Fake wood paneling, linoleum floor
F#m                    B
Pillow stuffed under the upstairs door
Em                  C                 A
Trying to learn a few chords and start a band

(Chorus)
G                    A
Take me back to those basement days
D         C#         Bm
"Stairway To Heaven" and "Purple Haze"
G                   A
"Pinball Wizard" and "Born To Run"
D            G
"I Can't Get No Satisfaction"
G                         A
We were lost in the music down in that room
D                    C#        Bm
It might as well have been the dark side of the moon
G                  A
You can burn out or fade away
Em              A        G           
But you can't go back to those basement days

VERSE:2
D               A          G                      D
We learned enough songs and we thought that it sounded alright
D                 A      G                     D
So we rented out a local church basement on a Saturday night
G                                 A
All our friends were there we were living the dream
F#m            B
'Til the fire marshal arrived on sceneA
And pulled the plug 'cause we set off the alarm with our dry ice machine

CHORUS

G                   A
Take me back to those basement days
D         C#          Bm
"Stairway To Heaven" and "Purple Haze"
G                   A
"Whipping Post" and "Aqualung"
D          G
"I Can't Get No Satisfaction"
G                       A
We were lost in the music down in that room
D                C#          Bm
It might as well have been the dark side of the moon
G               A
You can burn out or fade away
Em             A          G              
But you can't go back to those basement days

BRIDGE
G                         D
Give me one more shot at 16 years old
G                                     D
Back when I still believed that rock n' roll
A
Could save my soul

VERSE:3
D            A              G                    D
Now Timmy's in computers and his brother is a lawyer I hear
D       A                 G                              D
Who'd have guessed I'd be the one still crazy after all these years
G                              A
But it only comes in flashes every now and again
F#m                          B
I get a little taste of how it was back then
Em                  C                    A
And it keeps me going every time I feel like packing it in

(Chorus)
G                   A
Take me back to those basement days
D         C#          Bm
"Stairway To Heaven" and "Purple Haze"
G                   A
"Sugar Magnolia" "Here Comes the Sun"
D          G
I still know every word to "Comfortably Numb"
G                       A
We were lost in the music down in that room
D                C#          Bm
It might as well have been the dark side of the moon
G               A
You can burn out or fade away
Em             A          G              
But you can't go back to those basement days
