VERSE
 Dm                         F                          Am
Billy left his home with a dollar in his pocket and a head full of dreams.
         Dm                      F                    Am
He said somehow, some way, it's gotta get better than this.
 Dm                            F                          Am
Patti packed her bags, left a note for her momma, she was just seventeen,
             Dm                        F                           G
There were tears in her eyes when she kissed her little sister goodbye.
 
      Dm                            F
They held each other tight as they drove on through the night 
          Am
They were so exited.
            Dm                           F
We got but just one shot at life, let's take it while we're still not 
   Am
Afraid.
         Dm                   F                           Am
Because life is so brief and time is a thief when you're undecided.
            Dm                      F                       G
And like a fistful of sand, it can slip right through your hands.

 Dm                          F                         Am
Paradise was closed so they headed for the coast in a blissful manner.
            Dm                           F                         Am
They took a two room apartment that was jumping ev'ry night of the week.
 Dm                         F            Am
Happiness was found in each other's arms as expected, yeah
 Dm                             F                  G

Don't let 'em ever change your point of view.
