  doesn't really make a difference if you fingerpick the song.

Intro

(1) 

I have these dreams I'm walking home 
home where it used to be 
everything is as it was 
frozen in front of me 

Here I stand six feet small 
romanticizing years ago 
well it's a bittersweet feeling 
hearing "Wrapped Around Your Finger" on the radio 

(2) and these days 
I wish I was six again 
oh make me a red cape 
I wanna be Superman 

(3) oh if only my life was more like 1983 
all these things would be more like they were at the start of me 
I had it made in 83 

(1) 

thinking about my brother Ben 
I miss him everyday 
he looks just like his brother John 
but on an eighteen month delay 

here I stand six feet small 
and smiling cause I'm scared as hell 
kinda like your life is like a sequel to a movie 
where the actors' names have changed 

(2) well these days 
I wish I was six again 
oh make me a red cape 
I wanna be Superman 

(3) oh if only my life was more like 1983 
all these things would be more like they were at the start of me 
if my life was more like 1983 
plot a course to the source of the purest little part of me 

(4)

and most my memories have escaped me 
or confused themselves with dreams 
(5) if heaven's all they want it to be 
send your prayers to me care of 1983 

(Jam)

you can paint that house a rainbow of colors 
rip out the floorboards 
and replace the the shutters 
but that's my plastic in the dirt 

whatever happened to my 
whatever happened to my 
whatever happened to my lunchbox 
when came the day when it got 
thrown away and 
don't you think I should have had some say in that decision 

more like 
more like 
more like (7) 1983

About the artist behind 83 Tab:

John Clayton Mayer (surname pronunciation: /ˈmeɪ.jɜr/[1]) (born October 16, 1977) is an American singer-songwriter. Originally from Connecticut, he attended Berklee College of Music before moving to Atlanta, Georgia, in 1998, where he refined his skills and gained a following. His first two studio albums, Room for Squares and Heavier Things, did well commercially, achieving multi-platinum status. In 2003, he won a Best Male Pop Vocal Performance Grammy for "Your Body Is a Wonderland".

Mayer began his career performing mainly acoustic rock and pop, but gradually began a transition towards the blues genre in 2005 by collaborating with renowned blues artists such as B. B. King and Eric Clapton, and by forming the John Mayer Trio. The blues influence can be heard on his album Continuum, released in September 2006. At the 49th Annual Grammy Awards in 2007 Mayer won Best Pop Vocal Album for Continuum and Best Male Pop Vocal Performance for "Waiting on the World to Change". Mayer's career pursuits have extended to stand-up comedy, design, and writing; he has written pieces for magazines, most notably for Esquire. He is also involved in philanthropic activities through his "Back to You" fund and his concern over global warming.
