E  G#m  F#m  B7

E               G#m        F#m            B7
Tommy's selling used cars, Nancy's fixing hair,
A                               F#m
Harvey runs a grocery store and Margaret doesn't care.
E              G#m                 F#m                B7
Jerry drives a truck for Sears and Charlotte's on the make,
    A                             B7             E
And Paul sells life insurance and part time real estate.

E          G#m      F#m                B7
Helen is a hostess, Frank works at the mill,
A                              F#m
Janet teaches grade school and probably always will.
E                 G#m      F#m             B7
Bob works for the city and Jack's in lab research,
    A                        B7           E
And Peggy plays organ at the Presbyterian Church.

        A                    E
And the class of '57 had its dreams,
    G#m                                       F#m                 B7                  
Oh, we all thought we'd change the world with our great works and deeds.
   A                                     E                 G#m
Or maybe we just thought the world would change to fit our needs,
    A                    E      F
The class of '57 had its dreams.

F            Am            Gm        C7
Betty runs a trailer park, Jan sells Tupperware,
A#                         Gm
Randy's on an insane ward, Mary's on welfare.
F              Am             Gm                 C7
Charlie took a job with Ford, Joe took Freddie's wife,
A#                                C7               F
Charlotte took a millionaire, and Freddie took his life.

F              Am      Gm             C7
John is big in cattle, Ray is deep in debt,
A#                              Gm
Where Mavis finally wound up is anybody's bet.
F             Am     Gm             C7
Linda married Sonny, Brenda married me,
        A#                    C7             F
And the class of all of us is just a part of history.

(Repeat Chorus)

This is great, just remember to shift the second chorus up a fret like the verses.
