[Verse 1]

D                                  C
Livin' hard was easy, when I was young and bulletproof
    G                                     G/F    D 
I had no chains to bind me, just a guitar and a roof
                             C       
Emptied every bottle, when I poured I never missed
         G                           G/F  D 
I had bloodshot eyes at 25, or was it 26?


[Verse 2]

  D                               C
It didn't seem to matter, what price I had to pay
    G                                         G/F D 
'Cause anything worth having I'd just lose it anyway
                         C
Friends worried about me they asked if I was sick
       G                            G/F   D 
Thought I would die at 25 or was it 26?


[Chorus]

      G                         D 
Those two years run together like whiskey over ice
       A                        C                 F   D 
Melting in my memories like somebody else's life
     G                                D                   G
I'm glad to say I've come around but if I could have one wish
    D                    C          C/F  D 
I'd like another try at 25 or was it 26?


[Verse 3]

D                                   C
I met a girl from Georgia; smart, pretty college grad
  G                                               G/F       D 
I thought my luck was changing. Up till then it'd all been bad
                              C
Guess I fell in love with her all it took was one kiss
              G                           G/F  D 
But then she said goodbye at 25 or was it 26?


[Chorus]

      G                         D 
Those two years run together like whiskey over ice
       A                        C                 F   D 
Melting in my memories like somebody else's life
     G                                D                   G
I'm glad to say I've come around but if I could have one wish
    D                    C          C/F  D 
I'd like another try at 25 or was it 26?


[Verse 4]

  D                                     C
Yeah, I've been down the road before almost as far as hell
   G                                  G/F       D 
Deception or redemption I guess only time will tell 
                               C
I have faith in the knowledge that God gave us a gift
    G                             G/F  D 
So I couldn't hide at 25 or was it 26?


[Chorus]

      G                         D 
Those two years run together like whiskey over ice
       A                        C                 F   D 
Melting in my memories like somebody else's life
     G                                D                   G
I'm glad to say I've come around but if I could have one wish
    D                    C          C/F  D 
I'd like another try at 25 or was it 26?
