That Was The Way It Was Then
Recorded by Jerry Lee Lewis
[3/4 time]

G C
There’s cowboys that still sit with their backs to the wall
D7 G
Does a drifter still hear the high winds when they call
C
Do the hobo’s still eat pork and beans in a tin
A7 D7
Does a sailor still cast his precious faith to the wind

G C
Are the villains in black hats still I see hero’s in white
D7 G
Are the sock hops rocking and rolling Saturday nights
C
Would a forty-nine Mercury would it still be out of sight
D7 G
That was the way it was then

C
Ever night my loving honey I was James Dean
D7 G
Slow walking soft talking silently me
C
Surely the rebel and me lives again
A7 D7
All for the cause you’ll be all caught up in

G C
Well it’s a quarter till ten honey ole killer’s lying here in bed
D7 G
Spinning those old records memories lingering in my head
C
You know the times were so good I remember songs so sad
A7 D7
For the game I used to play it ain’t good it ain’t bad

G C
There’s a woman I remember by the way what was her name
D7 G
We made love we made love in one hell of a rain
C
Baby ten minutes how time flew back then
D7 G
It will never be that way again

E7 A7
Never be that way again
D7 G
Elvis Presley James Dean ole rocking Jerry Lee
