Glory Days

A  D  (x4)


Verse 1:

A                                   D

I had a friend was a big baseball player

A                      D

back in high school

A                              D

He could throw that speedball by you

A                             D

Make you look like a fool boy


Saw him the other night at this roadside bar


I was walking in and he was walking out


We went back inside sat down, had a few drinks,

      D                             E

but all he kept talking about was



A                               D

Glory days well they'll pass you by

A                                      D

Glory days in the wink of a young girl's eye

A                           E     A    D

Glory days, glory days


Verse 2:

A                                D

There's a girl that lives up the block

                 A                                              D

Back in school she could turn all the boys' heads

         A                                   D

Sometimes on a Friday I'll stop by and have a few drinks

A                                  D

after she put her kids to bed


Her and her husband Bobby well they split up


I guess it's two years gone by now


We just sit around talking about the old times,

                                          D                                              E

she says when she feels like crying she starts laughing thinking about




E (x2)  D   E


(Palm Mute)

A                                        D

Think I'm going down to the well tonight

                         A                        D

and I'm going to drink till I get my fill

         A                                                     D

And I hope when I get old I don't sit around thinking about it

A                   D

but I probably will


Yeah, just sitting back trying to recapture


a little of the glory of,


but time slips away and leaves you with nothing mister but

D                   E

boring stories of




A  D  (repeat)
