Those were good times

lyrics and music by Steffen Presley
Verse 1 The band was playing, the crowd was sailing
Life was simple then
The parties were going, their minds were blowing
Memories of yesterday
Chorus Those were good times way back in the day
Your wailing guitar had much to say
Yeah, those were good times, but to my dismay,
It could not stay that way
Verse 2 The times were changing, youth was raging
A flashback happening
The music was movin' Tunes were groovin'
Free love was in the air
Verse 3 The revolution begat evolution
We grew up along the way
it was fantastic, but I'm not nostalgic
Cause life's just fine today
Chorus Those were good times way back in the day
Your rockin' guitar had much to say
Yeah, those were good times, but to my dismay,
It did not stay that way
Bridge Strange Laughter in the ballroom, parties in the ghetto
Trips to Winterland
The closet in the mountains, a festival in a meadow
Trippin' with the band

(Chorus vamp)
