Artist:  Tracy Lawrence
Title:  That Was Us
Transcribed By:  Mex

Intro
C    F    G
C    F    G

C                          F                         C
Twenty dollars out of mama's purse bought us a tank of gas
               F                      C              G
And some red man tobacco when we was just teenage kids
C                    F           C
Yeah me and my ole' buddy Leroy we'd go driving around
              F               C
If there was trouble to be found, man we dang sure did


Am              G              C
Cuttin' donuts in the field 'till old man Smith would call the cops
                Am               G            C
And  he'd  come  running  out with a shotgun 'cause we was running down his
crops
Dm                  Em        F    G
I reckon he still wonders who that was
          C    F    G
That was us

C                     F                                C
Some of those local boys moved on but we never changed a bit
          F                                C                  G
Don't guess we had enough sense, at least that's what some folks said
C                  F               C
Yeah we finally turned old enough to buy our own beer
                   F                   C
Don't remember much about that year, lucky we ain't dead


Am                       G                      C
'Cause somebody said they saw some boys with a truck looked just like mine
       Am                 G                   C
Trying to pull down that old water tank sits out on the county line
Dm                           Em            F       G
People wonder why it leans the way it does
          C
That was us

Am                          G                   C
Seems like small towns never change but thing get tough when times get hard
Am                       G               C
And they said when he got sick that old man Smith would have lost that farm
Am                       G              C
'Cause he was getting way behind on all his bills
Am                                  G               C
But someone came and brought his crops in from the fields
Dm                           Em            F       G
Yeah folks 'round here still don't know who that was
          C    F    G         C    F     G
That was us

C                               F                            G
Cuttin' donuts in the field 'till old man Smith would call the cops
C                          F                                G
And  he'd  come  running  out with a shotgun 'cause we was running down his
crops
C                F                               G
Somebody said they saw some boys with a truck looked just like mine
C                        F                    G
Trying to pull down that old water tank sits out on the county line
          C    F    G
That was us
          C    F    G    C
Yeah that was us
