Keep Picking - Dan Mooney - Portland, Oregon
[C]Cigarettes were a quarter then, bobby socks and jeans were in, Elvis sang
the songs that we loved [Dm7]so, [G]and the [Dm7]most important [G]thing to
us, [Dm7]was keeping gas in [G]my old truck, [Dm7]so I could take us [G]to
the drive in [C]show.
[C]Then graduation finally came, Uncle Sam called me away, you married
someone else while I was [Dm7]gone, [G]but I've [Dm7]kept your letter [G]all
these years, [Dm7]and I can't help but [G]shed a tear, when I [Dm7]read the
words you [G]wrote me years
[C]Baby I'm [Bb]yours, [F]I'll love you always, I'm gonna [Bb]stand by you
[F]until the end of [C]time, remember [Bb]all of the good things [F]that we
shared to[C]gether, signed, love [Bb]Betty, [F]nineteen fifty [C]nine.
[C]I never will forget the day, when you and I went all the way, I was the
first for you, and you for [Dm7]me, [G]I've still [Dm7]got the truck that
[G]we loved in, it [Dm7]takes me back there [G]now and then, [Dm7]back to
fifty [g]nine in my memo[C]ry.
