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
