[Verse 1]

D#m              G#7     D#m          G#7          D#m  G#7  D#m  G#7
 Looking back on when I, was a little nappy headed boy.
D#m           G#7    D#m                G#7              D#m  G#7  D#m  G#7
 Then my only worry, was for Christmas; what would be my toy.


[Bridge 1]

A#7             C7        Fm7             G#m6
 Even though we sometimes would not get a thing;
A#7            C7       Fm7               A#7#5
 We were happy with the joy the day would bring.


[Verse 2]

D#m               G#7
 Sneaking out the back door,
   D#m                 G#7                D#m  G#7  D#m  G#7
To hang out with those hoodlum friends of mine.
D#m             G#7
 Greeted at the back door,
              D#m                G#7           D#m   G#7  D#m  G#7
With; "boy, I thought I told you not to go out-side?"


[Bridge 2]

A#7                  C7        Fm7          G#m6
 Tryin' your best to bring the water to you eyes.
A#7                C7             Fm7              A#7#5
 Thinkin' it might stop her, from whoopin' your be-hind.


[Chorus 1]

             D#m   G#7    D#m            G#7
I wish those days, could, come back once more,
              D#m   G#7  D#m         G#7
Why did those days, e   -ver have to go?

             D#m   G#7    D#m            G#7
I wish those days, could, come back once more,
              D#m   G#7  D#m         G#7                 (D#m)
Why did those days, e   -ver have to go? 'Cos I love them so.


[Break]

D#m  G#7          D#m             G#7
  Do do do do, do do do do, do do do do.
D#m  G#7          D#m             G#7
  Do do do do, do do do do, do do do do.


[Verse 3]

D#m                G#7
 Brother says he's tellin',
D#m                G#7              D#m  G#7  D#m  G#7
 'Bout you playing doctor with that girl.
D#m                    G#7
 Just don't tell; I'll give you,
D#m           G#7                     D#m   G#7  D#m  G#7
 Anything you want in this whole wide world.


[Bridge 3]

A#7             C7     Fm7        G#m6
 Mama gives you money, for Sunday school,
A#7                  C7     Fm7             A#7#5
 You trade yours for candy, after church is through.


[Verse 4]

D#m           G#7
 Smokin' ciga-rettes and,
    D#m               G#7          D#m  G#7         D#m  G#7
And writing something nasty on the wall, (you nasty boy!)
D#m                G#7    D#m           G#7           D#m  G#7
 Teacher sends you to the principals of-fice down the hall.


[Bridge 4]

A#7              C7          Fm7               G#m6
 You grow up and learn that, kinda thing ain't right.
A#7                 C7           Fm7             A#7#5
 But while you were doin' it; it sure felt outta sight.


[Chorus 2]

             D#m   G#7    D#m            G#7
I wish those days, could, come back once more,
              D#m   G#7  D#m         G#7
Why did those days, e   -ver have to go?

             D#m   G#7    D#m            G#7
I wish those days, could, come back once more,
              D#m   G#7  D#m         G#7
Why did those days, e   -ver have to go?

             D#m   G#7    D#m            G#7
I wish those days, could, come back once more,
              D#m   G#7  D#m         G#7
Why did those days, e   -ver have to go?

             D#m   G#7    D#m            G#7
I wish those days, could, come back once more,
              D#m   G#7  D#m         G#7                 (D#m)
Why did those days, e   -ver have to go? 'Cos I love them so.
