That Was Us

	  		Intro:  
C 	 F 	 G 
C 	 F 	 G 
 
 	   C 	               F 	  	           C 
Twenty dollars out of momma's purse bought us a tank of gas 
                        F               C       G 
And a pack of tobacco when, we was just teenage kids. 
C               F             C 
Me and Jack and Danny we'd go driving round 
                     F                         C 
If there was trouble to be found, heh, then we found it quick. 
 
         Am             G                   C 
Chuckin' donuts in the fields ?till old man Smith would call the cops 
              Am                 G 
And he'd come running out with a shotgun ?cause we was  
C 
Running down his crops. 
   Dm                  Em         F            G 
And I reckon he's still wonderin who that was, 
N/C                   C    F    G    C    F    G   
That was us. 
 
             C                 F                 C 
Some of these local boys moved on but we never changed a bit 
            F                                    C          G 
Never had a scrap of 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 about that year, just lucky that we're not dead. 
 
       Am            G                 C          
?Cause somebody said they saw some boys with a ute looked just like mine 
               Am                  G                  C               
Trying to pull down that old water tank that sits out by the railway line. 
       Dm             Em              F             G 
People wonder why it leans the way it does. 
N/C              C    F    G 
That was us. 
 
 
         Am                  G                     C 
Seems like small towns never change but things get tough when times get hard 
         Am              G              C 
And they say when he got sick, 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 
N/C            C    F    G 
That was us. 
 
         Am             G                    C 
 Cuttin' donuts in the fields ?till old man Smith would call the cops 
              Am                 G 
And he'd come running out with a shotgun ?cause we was  
C 
Running down his crops. 
Am                 G                    C          
Somebody said they saw some boys with a ute looked just like mine 
          Am                        G             C               
Trying to pull down that old water tank that sits out by the railway line. 
          C    F    G 
That was us 
          C    F    G     
Yeah that was us.
