Pubblicato 1983
Tonalità originale D

 

D
If it seems like I’ve been lost in let’s remember
D
If you think I’m feeling older and missing my younger days
.                         G
Oh, then you should have known me much better
Cause my past is something that never
.                   D
Got in my way  oh no




D
Still I would not be here now if I never had the hunger
D
And I’m not ashamed to say the wild boys were my friends
.                      G
Cause I never felt the desire ‘til their music set me on fire

.                            A6       G
And then I was saved, yeah
.                                                A6
that’s why I’m keeping the faith
G
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
.                        D
Keeping the faith

 

D
We wore matador boots only Flagg Brothers had them with the Cuban heel
Iridescent socks with the same color shirt and a tight pair of chinos
.   G
I put on my shark skin jacket
You know the kind with the velvet collar
.                           D
And ditty-bop shades

I took a fresh pack of Luckies and a mint called Sen-Sen
My old man’s Trojans and his Old Spice after shave
.                       G
Combed my hair in a pompadour
Like the rest of the Romeos wore

.                          A6     G
A permanent wave yeah
.                                       A6
We were keeping the faith
G
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
.                       D
Keeping the faith

 

A                                G                       D
You can get just so much from a good thing
A                                G                       D
You can linger too long in your dreams
A                                G                       D
Say goodbye to the oldies but goodies
.                  Em7
Cause the good old days weren’t always good
.         A7
And tomorrow ain’t as bad as it seems

 

D
Learned stickball as a formal education
Lost a lot of fights but it taught me how to lose O.K.
.    G
I heard about sex but not enough
.                                                                                       D
I found you could dance and still look tough anyway

I found out a man ain’t just being macho
Ate an awful lot of late night drive-in food drank a lot of take-home pay
.     G
I thought I was the Duke of Earl when I made it with a red-haired girl

 

.                    A6     G
In a Chevrolet oh yeah
.                                       A6
We were keeping the faith
G
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
.                       D
Keeping the faith

 

.                  Em7
Cause the good old days weren’t always good
.         A7
And tomorrow ain’t as bad as it seems

— last verse —




D
Now I told you my reasons for the whole revival
Now I’m going outside to have an ice cold beer in the shade
.                       G
I’m going to listen to my 45’s, ain’t it wonderful to be alive

.                                          A6     G
When the rock ‘n’ roll plays Yeah
.                                      A6   G
When the memory stays Yeah
.                              A6
I’m keeping the faith
G
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
D
Keeping the faith…
