Joe Bethancourt – When I Was A Boy chords

Chords:
Transpose:
[Verse 1]
F CWhen I was a boy our Nintendo
F CWas carved from an old Apple tree
F CAnd we used garden hose to connect it
D GTo our steam-powered color tv.
F CBut it still beat that ancient Atari
F C'Cuz I almost went blind, don'tcha know,
F CPlaying Breakout and Pong on a video game
D GHooked up to the radio.
[Chorus]
F CAnd we walked twenty miles to the schoolhouse
F CBarefoot, uphill both ways,
F CThrough blizzards in summer and winter
D GBack in the good old days.
F CBack when Fortran was not even Three-tran
F CAnd the PC was only a toy
F CAnd we did our computing by gaslight
D GWhen I was a boy.
[Verse 2]
F CWhen I was a boy all our networks
F CWere for hauling in fish from the sea--
F COur bawd rate was eight bits an hour (and she was worth it!),
D GAnd our IP address was just 3.
F CAnd you kids who complain that the World Wide Web
F CIs too slow oughtta cut out your bitchin',
F C'Cuz when I was a boy every packet
D GWas delivered by carrier pigeon
[Chorus]
F CAnd we walked twenty miles to the schoolhouse
F CBarefoot, uphill both ways,
F CThrough blizzards in summer and winter
D GBack in the good old days.
F CBack when Fortran was not even Two-tran
F CAnd the mainframe was only a toy
F CAnd we did our computing by torchlight
D GWhen I was a boy.
[Verse 3]
F CWhen I was a boy our IS shop
F CBuilt relational tables from wood,
F CAnd we wrappered our data in oilcloth
D GTo preserve it the best that we could.
F CAnd we carried our bits in a bucket,
F CAnd our mainframe weighed 900 tons,
F CAnd we programmed in ones and in zeros
D GAnd sometimes we ran out of ones.
[Chorus]
F CAnd we walked twenty miles to the schoolhouse
F CBarefoot, uphill both ways,
F CThrough blizzards in summer and winter
D GBack in the good old days.
F CBack when Fortran was not even One-tran
F CAnd the abacus? Only a toy!
F CAnd we did our computing in primordial darkness
G CWhen I was a boy.
