ARE THE GOOD TIMES REALLY OVER FOR GOOD
Merle Haggard   

It's best to use a barchord F during this song. Take note of the "no chord" before
the last chorus, but start back with a strong strum.  

     
I wish a (C) buck was still silver and it was back when the country was (F) strong
Back before (G) Elvis and before the Vietnam war came a(C)long    
Before the Beatles and yesterday when a man could still work, and still (F) would
Is the best of the free life (G) behind us now 
And are the good times really over for (C) good
                                               
Are we rollin' downhill like a snowball headed for (F) hell    
With (G) no kind of chance for the flag or the liberty (C) bell
I wish a Ford and a Chevy would still last ten years like they (F) should
Is the best of the free life (G) behind us now
And are the good times really over for (C) good
     
I wish Coke was still cola and a joint was a bad place to (F) be 
It was back before (G) Nixon lied to us all on T(C)V 
Before Microwave ovens when a girl could still cook and still (F) would   
Is the best of the free life (G) behind us now                   
And are the good times really over For (C) good

Are we rollin' downhill like a snowball headed for (F) hell    
With (G) no kind of chance for the flag or the liberty (C) bell
I wish a Ford and a Chevy, would still last ten years like they (F) should
Is the best of the free life (G) behind us now              
And are the good times really over for (C) good

Stop (C) rollin' downhill like a snowball headed for (F) hell     
Stand (G) up for the flag and let's all ring the liberty (C) bell
Let's make a Ford and a Chevy that'll still last ten years like they (F) should
Cause the best of the free life is still (G) yet to come
And the good times ain't over for (C) good

Let the C just fade
