A5  A5/G#  F#5  E5
D5  D5/C#  B5   E5


[Verse 1]
A C#m F#m EIf I were a few generations younger who would know
D C#m B EWhat I'd like and what I'd do, my taste in music, taste in clothes
A C#m F#m EPerhaps I'd meet a girl who likes the things I do and maybe more
D C#m B EWe'd take my thunderbird for a summer trip down to the shore
[Pre-Chorus]
F#m A F#m A DHome-coming can only come so soon
E D EIt's time to go back in time and come run away with you
[Chorus]
A F#m D EAnd I hope you are still alive, though it ain't 1955
A F#m D EI would be right there by your side, if I was born in '39
A F#m D EMaybe we could build a boat and sail across the sea
A F#m D EBut you're far away from me, not just by length but by an eternity
[Verse 2]
A C#m F#m EI can see your face, your hair-sprayed hair ad polka-dotted dress
D C#m B EI got suspenders, got my thick-rimmed glasses and my hair's a mess
A C#m F#m EBut you don't care, we just sip our milkshakes and theorize about the moon
D C#m B EListen to Perry Como, I'd get jealous as you swoon
[Pre-Chorus]
F#m A F#m A DHome-coming can only come so soon
E D EIt's time to go back in time and come run away with you
[Chorus]
A F#m D EAnd I hope you are still alive, though it ain't 1955
A F#m D EI would be right there by your side, if I was born in '39
A F#m D EMaybe we could build a boat and sail across the sea
A F#m D EBut you're far away from me, not just by length but by an eternity
[Solo] A F#m D E A F#m D E A F#m D E A F#m D E [Bridge]
A A/G# F#m EMaybe we can build a boat and sail across the sea
D D/C# B ENo electric light will blind us from the starry sky
A A/G# F#m EI take your hand, you'd be mine, and in my car at the drive-in
D D/C# B EThe radio is all we need to feel alive
A A/G# F#m EBuild a rocket ship and fly into the moon and never come back
D D/C# B EI'll see you on the edge of the galaxy as we run on for miles
[Chorus]
A F#m D EAnd I hope you are still alive, though it ain't 1955
A F#m D EI would be right there by your side, if I was born in '39
A F#m D EMaybe we could build a boat and sail across the sea
A F#m D EBut you're far away from me, not just by length but by an eternity
