How To Play

INTRO
A E D A
 
VERSE 1
  A                    E
Tommy got off at the Texaco
 D                   A
Came bustin' in to Norma's Cafe
                  E
Said come on man we gotta go
 D                           A
You know how those part girls hate to wait
                          E
Filled up his daddy's trunk with ice and beer
 D                  A
Yeah he was always stealin' the old man's car
                  E
Radio never came in too clear
        D                   A
So I'd bang out one on my piece of junk guitar
 
CHORUS
     F#m     G
Yeah we ruled from the blacktop
 D                       A
To the levee where the party never stopped
                 E
Yeah there was power in the night
      F#m                  G
The spirit was alive when we would sing
 A         E        D     G
Sha na na na na na na na
           A
When We were kings
 
VERSE 2
   A                          E
Sittin' around the fire one night Tommy called my name
D                        A
I turned around he said hey what do ya think
                                  E
Had his arm around the prettiest girl I'd ever seen
D                           A
He kissed her hard and took another drink
                      E
I say you must be an angel puttin' up with this guy
 D                    A
She laughed and said play me some Rolling Stones
                      E
I couldn't let that chance go by
      D                            A
Yeah I sang her "You Can't Always Get What you Want"
 
Repeat Chorus
 
VERSE 3
 A          E
That was the fall of '69
D                  A
I guess Uncle Sam was hedging his bet
                    E
Tommy's number came up he said "Hey I'll be fine"
  D                          A
"I'll teach 'em a lesson they'll never forget"
                      E
Angel and I went to wave goodbye
D                              A
I guess we'd always thought we'd see him again
                               E
You know I took her out after that a couple of times
D                        A
We always just wound up talkn' 'bout him
