1. It was 1989, my thoughts were short, my hair was long,

       D                                  C                       G

    caught somewhere between a boy and man.

       D           C                      G

    She was 17 and she was far from in between,

                D                       C            G

    it was summertime in Northern Michigan.

2. Splashin' thru the sandbar, talkin' by the campfire,

                D                       C                              G

    it's the simple things in life like when and where.

            D                    C                   G

    We didn't have no internet, but man I never will forget,

             D                           C                       G

    the way the moonlight shined upon her hair.

 

                        D                    C                                 G

And we were tryin' different things, and we were smokin' funny things,

            D                      C                            G

makin' love out by the lake to our favorite songs,

               D                   C               G

sippin' whisky out the bottle, not thinkin' 'bout tomorrow,

                D                     C            G                    

singin' Sweet Home Alabama all summer long.

3. Catchin' walleye from the dock, watchin' the waves roll off the rocks,

                 D                    C                    G

    she'll forever hold a spot inside my soul.

               D                  C                        G

    We'd blister in the sun, we couldn't wait for night to come,

        D                            C                        G

    to hit that sand and play some rock 'n roll.

4. Now nothin' seems as strange as when the leaves began to change,

            D                                 C                          G

    oh, how we thought those days would never end.

              D                          C                  G

    Sometimes I hear that song and I'll start to sing along,

                       D                     C                   G

    and think, man, I'd like to see that girl again.
