lyrics

V1:
Back when we used to stay up, all night long.
Back when we used to sing every word, to every song, yeah Back in the Day.
V2:
Back when a good book, would give you chills.
Not drinkin’ Jack and Jim, just areadin’,
Jack and Jill, yeah Back in the Day.

Chorus:
D A
When red, white, and blue, meant them, and us, and you.
D E A
When we all get along, and everyone speaks the truth, yeah maybe someday.
V3:
Back when the ladies said thank you and the men said please.
Back when they held the door open, helpin every stranger in need,
yeah Back in the Day.

Chorus:
Solo to Chorus:

V4: (pulled down)
Back when we ate from the garden, and we drank from the still.
Back when the whiskey wouldn’t burn, and the dipper, wasn’t full of pills,
yeah, Back in the Day.

Chorus: (twice building)

Outro (just acoustic:)
½ time Maybe some day, yeah maybe some day
