Damon Johnson - Pontiac chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Tune down a half step (D#  G#  C#  F#  A#  d#).

All chord names I've listed below are based on standard tuning so as not to confuse 
folks with unfamiliar chord names.

Throughout the song, each time you’re on the D, Am, and Cadd9 chords (in the verse and 
chorus), embellish the chord by hammering the G note on the high e string.  This will 
cause the D to change to Dsus, the Am to change to Amsus, and the Cadd9 to change to Cadd9*.

Chords used: 
G      3  2  0  0  3  3
D      x  0  0  2  3  2
Dsus   x  0  0  2  3  3
Am     x  0  2  2  1  0
Amsus  x  0  2  2  1  3
Cadd9  x  3  2  0  3  0
Cadd9* x  3  2  0  3  3

Intro:  G  D(to Dsus)  Am(to Amsus)  Cadd9(to Cadd9*)
(These same chord hammers will be used in all verses and choruses, except for the last 
line of the chorus; only the bridge changes.  I didn't repeat these changes in the chords 
below; just assume that they are happening.)

G          D      Am                Cadd9
Time goes by; I guess that's how it goes.
G              D                         Am                       Cadd9
We've come a long way, girl, from those cotton fields out on Old Creek Road.
G          D            Am                Cadd9
I was a skinny boy; you were the homecoming queen.
G                    D                     Am                    Cadd9
We'd sit on those starry nights, tangled up in love, dreaming young lovers' dreams.
Am               Cadd9  Am               Cadd9
Girl, it felt so good, just like forever should.


Chorus:
G                             D          Am                           Cadd9
I get lost sometimes in the memories, thinking back to the way things used to be.
G                              D          Am                   Cadd9
Just you and I, when we were young, in my Pontiac, racin' to the sun.
G                              D                   Am                Cadd9
Well, we held the whole world in our hands; living day by day was our only plan.
G                              D          Am                   Cadd9
Just you and I, when we were young, in my Pontiac, racin' to the sun.
Cadd9                   D  (no hammers in this line)
And to the radio we'd sing; it sure was a good thing.

G  D  Am  Cadd9

G          D             Am                Cadd9
Girl, I tried to be the man you wanted me to be.
G           D                         Am                       Cadd9
I got off track somewhere, started running with the fools and fiends.
G                 D                       Am                     Cadd9
I picked up and left your world, didn't know back then the reasons I went away.
G               D                     Am                    Cadd9
Sometimes, it all comes back like a ghost train full of yesterdays.
Am               Cadd9   Am                    Cadd9
It carries me back home, back to that Old Creek Road.

Chorus:
G                             D          Am                           Cadd9
I get lost sometimes in the memories, thinking back to the way things used to be.
G                              D          Am                   Cadd9
Just you and I, when we were young, in my Pontiac, racin' to the sun.
G                              D                   Am                Cadd9
Well, we held the whole world in our hands; living day by day was our only plan.
G                              D          Am                   Cadd9
Just you and I, when we were young, in my Pontiac, racin' to the sun.
Cadd9                   D  (no hammers in this line)
And to the radio we'd sing; it sure was a good thing.

Bridge:
Em                Cadd9      G           walk to F3, walk to Em
It stopped rainin' back in '95; we were so alive.
Em      Cadd9                  Am            walk to B, walk to Cadd9*
In our boots and jeans, we were living free.
(let the Cadd9* ring)
All I wanted was you in those bucket seats.

Chorus:
G                             D          Am                           Cadd9
I get lost sometimes in the memories, thinking back to the way things used to be.
G                              D          Am                   Cadd9
Just you and I, when we were young, in my Pontiac, racin' to the sun.
G                              D                   Am                Cadd9
Well, we held the whole world in our hands; living day by day was our only plan.
G                              D          Am                   Cadd9
Just you and I, when we were young, in my Pontiac, racin' to the sun.
Cadd9                   D  (no hammers in this line)
And to the radio we'd sing; it sure was a good thing.

G  D  Am  Cadd9 (over na na na na)
