[Intro] 
C  G 

[Chorus] 
G                 C                       G
Back when we were young everybody came to see us
                    D                       G
Everybody wanted to be us back when we were young
                    C                           G
We loved each other so all our friends told one another
                      D                       G
And we even told each other back when we were young

[Verse] 
G                                           
It was laughin' it was dancin' 
       C                               G
It was cigarettes and bourbon flavored kisses
       D                                           
It was alligator shoes and new blue suits
                        G                                           
And anything that money wishes

It was sittin' up all night and waitin'   
C                             G
For the dawn to bring another wondrous day
       D 
It was holding hands and thinking 
                                 G                                           
That tomorrow is a million years away

[Chorus] 
G                 C                       G
Back when we were young everybody came to see us
                    D                       G
Everybody wanted to be us back when we were young
                    C                           G
We loved each other so all our friends told one another
                      D                       G
And we even told each other back when we were young

[Verse] 
G     
It was rolling sevens every time 
    C                          G
And thinking it was never ever gonna end
     D                                           
Back then we even thought of time itself 
                        G                                           
As being something of a passing friend
                                    C 
It was buyin' one another things we didn't need
                      G
And birthdays were so corny
     D 
Back then we even had some friends 
                        G                     
Live as far away as California
                  C                     
Back when we were young
