       G (2)                                     C            G

    Grandpa gave a wheat penny and I put it in my pocket

       G (2)                                        D (2)

    I had big plans in my back yard to build me a space rocket

         G (2)                                                 C                     G

    I talked to my brother on a fake CB that I made from a tic-tac box

        G (2)                                                      D             G

    I packed my snowballs nice and tight but in the middle I put rocks

     

    Chorus:

      C (3)                                                                    G

    Don’t trade in your tic-tac box for a ball on the end of a chain

            G (3)                                                                D (2)

    And don’t go spending Grandpa’s pennies buying into the game

                   C (2)                G (2)

    You gotta keep your heart young

     D (2)                        Em          (2)      

    Don’t go growin old before your time has come

                         C (2)                      G (2)

    You can’t take back what you have done

                       D (2)              G (2)

    You’ve gotta keep your heart young

     

            G (2)                                             C                          G

    Dad took the wheels off of my bike and he pushed me down the hill

       G (2)                                     D (2)

    But speed got the best of me and I took my first spill

       G (2)                                   C                 G

    That was back when alcohol was only used on cuts

          G (2)                                                       D                    G

    It stung like hell so I turned my leg and momma said it’d give me guts

     

    Chorus

     

          G (2)                                               C                      G

    So take a picture of the one you love and put it in a locket

     G (2)                                              D (2)

    Go dig up your time capsule and the blueprints for your rocket

       G (2)                                     C                  G

    Keep in touch on a fake CB, that same old tic-tac box

      G (2)                                                        D (hold)        G

    Pack your snowballs a little less tight but in the middle still put rocks

     

    Final Chorus:

             C (2)               G (2)

    And keep your heart young

     D (2)                        Em          (2)      

    Don’t go growin’ old before your time has come

                          C (2)                     G (2)

    You can’t take back what you have done

                     D (2)                           G (2)

    You gotta keep your heart young

     

                    C (2)                G (2)

    You gotta keep your heart young

             D (2)                                 Em (2) 

    Sometimes you don’t die quick just like you wished you done

                     C (2)                G (2)

    And though love is a loaded gun

                       D (2)               G (2)

    You’ve gotta keep your heart young

     

                          C (2)                     G                Em

    You can’t take back what you have done, yeah, done

                       D (2)              G

    You’ve gotta keep your heart young

     

    End on G
