Back When - Tim McGraw
Album: Live Like You Were Dying
Writers: Jeff Stevens/Stephony Smith/Stan Lynch

Intro: G  D  Am  C

G                        D
Don't you remember, the fizz in a pepper
Am                     G             D
Peanuts in a bottle at ten, two and four
   G                           D
A fried bologna sandwich with mayo and tomato
Am                            G               D
Sittin' round the table don't happen much anymore
       Em                       A7
We got too complicated It's all way over-rated
            C                         D 
I like the old and out-dated way of life

G            D
Back when a hoe was a hoe
Coke was a coke
And crack's what you were doing
When you were cracking jokes
Back when a screw was a screw
The wind was all that blew
And when you said I'm down with that
Well it meant you had the flu
I miss back when
I miss back when
             G     D
I miss back when

G                   D
I love my records, black, shiny vinyl
Am                                G                 D
Clicks and pops and white noise, man they sounded fine
G                            D
I had my favorite stations, the ones that played them all
Am                                    G                 D
Country, soul and rock-and-roll what happened to those times?
             Em                                     A7
I'm readin' Street Slang For Dummies cause they put pop in my country
         C                     D               G
I want more for my money, the way it was back then


Break(in from end of chorus): G  D  Am  G  D 

Give me a flat top for strumming
I want the whole world to be humming
C                         D               G
Just keep it coming, the way it was back then


             Am                 C
I miss back when, I miss back when

Outro: G  D  Am  C (repeat 3 times into fade)
