Pontiac

 

VERSE
Pontiacs and daydreams,   [A]
Cigarettes and magazines,   [A]
Backseat full of memories   [A]
I can’t let go of.   [B]

VERSE
Classic rock radio,   [C]
Polyester winter coat,  [C]
Crushes that gave up the ghost,   [C]
Snow is fallin’ school is closed   [C]
I still remember I still know . . .   [C]

CHORUS
And I hope you get your heart broke   [C]
At least once before you fall in love.   [B]
I hope you wind up flat broke   [C]
At least once before you have enough.   [B]
Hold on to some innocence   [D]
Through the “almosts” and the “could have beens”.   [D]
Put an anchor in somethin’ that will bring you back.   [E]
I hope you keep the Pontiac.   [E]

VERSE
Kisses laced in cinnamon.   [D]
Coppertone on summer skin.   [D]
Wasted time you can’t unspend.   [D]
County roads and bumper dents,   [D]
Nothing’s insignificant.   [D]

CHORUS
And I hope you get your heart broke   [C]
At least once before you fall in love.   [B]
I hope you wind up flat broke   [C]
At least once before you have enough.   [B]
Hold on to some innocence   [D]
Through the “almosts” and the “could have beens”.   [D]
Put an anchor in somethin’ that will bring you back.   [E]
I hope you keep the Pontiac.   [E]

Hold on to some innocence   [D]
Through the almosts and the could have beens.   [D]
Put an anchor in somethin’ that will bring you back.   [E]
I hope you keep the Pontiac.   [E]
I hope you keep the Pontiac. [E]
I hope you keep the Pontiac. [E]
