    G                               C   G  
My granddad's pride and joy was a '49 Ford
                             D  
Much as he loved grandma he loved that old truck more
C                 D           G       D      C  
I thought it was time that I took it for a stroll
   D                                             G  
I had a big old pair for a boy just eight years old
  G                      C                   G  
Grounding second gear, drifting through the cows
                                       D   
Ripping through the pasture when the breaks finally gave out
          C                D              G       D/F#       Em     
He was screaming from the porch, I was crashing through the fence
               A7                                       D
And he said, "What do you have to say for what you've done?"

In my defense, I said

[Chorus]
      C          G  
It's fun having fun
              D                       Em
There's only so many trips around the sun
      C                    G   
Of a gun, what's done is done
 D        
Hold it flat 'cause none of it lasts
                     G 
But it's fun having fun

[Verse]
    G                       C            G  
My dad kept a can of gas behind our old barn
                                   D  
I made sure I was careful when I poured it on the lawn
      C          D                G     D/F#      C          
That fire was beautiful and the wind started to blow
      D                                              G   
That ember hit the hayloft and I watched the sucker go
    G                              C           G  
It didn't take long at all, those forty foot flames
                                      D            
I remember feeling grateful that the fire was not contained
      C             D           G   D/F#  Em              
The fireman had a hose and my daddy had a belt
           A7                                       D     
He said, "What do you have to say for what you've done?"

I just felt that

[Chorus]
      C          G  
It's fun having fun
              D                        Em   
There's only so many trips around the sun
      C                   G    
Of a gun, what's done is done
 D        
Hold it flat 'cause none of it lasts
                     G  
But it's fun having fun

Them country boys doing 95 down an old dirt road
                                            D 
Hotbox in a minivan squinting through the smoke
 C                  D               G       D/F#  Em  
Blue lights keep flashing and they haul our asses in (damn it, boy)
         A7                              D   
I look ****** up in the mugshot but I'd do it all again
           C                                     G             
If you're dumb (yes, you're dumb) you gotta be tough (well, you're tough)
            D                                  Em          
If you're smart you might miss the thrill of blowing things up
         C                       G  
That's enough of a life that's boring
         D               Em   
And the worst decisions make good stories
 C                         G    
Grab your helmet and your cape
         D           
Break a leg, duct tape it straight
Chicks dig scars and get-well cakes

[Chorus]
      C          G  
It's fun having fun
              D                        Em   
There's only so many trips around the sun
      C                   G    
Of a gun, what's done is done
 D        
Hold it flat 'cause none of it lasts
                                           C    G7  
But it's fun having fun having fun having fun.......
