Title: Cherry Bomb - John Mellencamp 
>From album: The Lonesome Jubilee

Intro:  G   Am   G   Am   G   Am   G   Am   

G                    Am 
Well, I lived on the outskirts of town
G                Am 
In an eight room farm-house, baby
G                    Am
When my brothers and friends were around
G                Am 
There was always something doinÂ’
Em                      Bm 
Had me a couple of real nice girlfriends
Am                   C 
Stopped by to see me once in a while
Em                  Bm    
When I think back a-bout those days
Am              C                G 
All I can do is sit and smile

G             Am 
ThatÂ’s when a sport was a sport
G                Am 
And groovinÂ’ was groovinÂ’
G                 Am
And dancinÂ’ meant everything
G                 Am   
We were young and we were improvinÂ’
G                   Am
LaughinÂ’, laughinÂ’, with our friends
G                   Am 
HoldinÂ’ hands meant somethinÂ’, baby
G                 Am 
Outside the club Cherry Bomb,
G               Am
Our hearts were really thumpinÂ’,
Am            G       Am/Am-/Am (quickly)
Say yeah, yeah, yeah
(no chord)           G Am
Say yeah, yeah, yeah 

The winter days they last forever
But the weekends went by so quick
Went ridinÂ’ around this little country town
We were goinÂ’ nuts girl, out in the sticks
One night, me with my big mouth
A couple guys had to put me in my place
When I see those guys these days
We just laugh and say, Do you remember when?

Repeat chorus

1/2 length intrumental chorus 

Now, seventeen has turned thirty-five
IÂ’m surprised that weÂ’re still livinÂ’
If weÂ’ve done any wrong
I hope that weÂ’re forgiven
Got a few kids of my own
And some days I still donÂ’t know what to do
I hope that theyÂ’re not laughinÂ’ too loud
When they hear me talkinÂ’ like this to you

Repeat chorus
