1. If I told you things I did before, told you how I used to be,

       F                                                        Am

    would you go along with someone like me ?

    F                                                        Am

    If you knew my story word for word, had all of my history,

        F                                                       Am

    would you go along with someone like me?

 

                 F                                                Am

    I did before and had my share, it didn't lead nowhere,

    F                                                         C

    I would go along with someone like you.

                      F                                                   Am

    It doesn't matter what you did, who you were hanging with,

     F                                                                 Am

    we could stick around and see this night through.

 

                                                F                                          C

And we don't care about the young folks, talkin' bout the young style,

                                              F                                                     C

and we don't care about the old folks, talkin' 'bout the old style, too.

                                                 F                                         C

And we don't care about their own faults, talkin' 'bout our own style,

                               F                                          Am

all we care 'bout is talking, talking only me and you.
