Story of my Life

Social Distortion

    G             C                D
High School seemed like such a blur
G                    C         D
I didn't have much interest in sports or school election
G              C            D
and in class I dreamed all day
G                   C      D
'bout a rock & roll weekend.

Chorus---
G        C       D
Life goes by so fast
G              C                     D
you only wanna do whatcha think is right.
G           C            D
Close your eyes and its past.
G           C          D
Story of my life.


2.
Well I went downtown to look for a job
I had no training no experience to speak of
and I looked at the holes in my jeans
and turned and headed back.

3.
Well I went down to the old neighborhood
the faces had all changed nobody left to talk to
and the pool hall I loved as a kid
is now a 7/11.

4.
Good time come and good times go.
I only wish the good times would last a little longer.
I was thinking of the good times we had
and why they had to end.
So I sit at the edge of my bed
I strum my guitar and I sing an outlaw love song.
Thinking of what youre doing now
and when you're coming back.
