A VCR and a DVD

There wasn't none of that crap back in 1970

We didn't know about a world wide web

It was a whole different game being played

Back when I was a kid

You wanna get down in a cool way?

Picture yourself on a beautiful day

With the big bell bottoms and groovy long hair

Just a walking in style with a portable CD player

Flash back to '72

Another summer in the neighbrohood

Hanging out with nothing to do

Sometimes we go driving around in my sister's Pinto

Crusing with the windows rolled down

We listen to the radio station

We were too damn poor to buy the 8-track tapes

But it was a good time don't wanna be inside

My momma wanna watch that TV

All God damn night

I'd be in bed with the radio on

I would listen to it all night long

Just to hear my favorite song

You'd have to wait but you could hear it on the AM radio

Can't we watch Good Times with Chico and the Man or something cool?

Things changed back in '75

We were all growing up on the in and the outside

We got in trouble with the police man

We got busted for getting high

In the back of my friend's van

Suggestion from Nick Arciaga (jedirex311@earthlink.net)

 

I am not sure if this is accurate, but it is the general idea when they

play this live.

 

main riff (power chords):

E D E D A G A G

e|-------------------|

B|-------------------|

G|-9-7-9-7-----------|

D|-9-7-9-7--7-5-7-5--|

A|-7-5-7-5--7-5-7-5--|

E|----------5-3-5-3--|

 

Thats the general idea, aside from Art screaming like crazy and lots of

neck slides.That's it!

Nick A.
