	        ARE THE GOOD TIMES REALLY OVER FOR GOOD (Buck Was Still Silver) 
Merle Haggard     
 
      
I wish a (D) buck was still silver, and it was back when the country was (G) strong            
(A) Back before Elvis, and before the Vietnam war came a(D)long                                             
Before the Beatles and yesterday, when a (G) man could still (D) work, and still (G) would                         
Is the (A) best of the free life behind us now  
And are the good times really over for (D) good 
                                                
Are we rollin' downhill like a snowball headed for (G) hell     
With (A) no kind of chance for the flag or the liberty (D) bell                     
I wish a Ford or a Chevy, would still last ten years like they (G) should                        
Is the (A) best of the free life behind us now               
And are the good times really over for (D) good 
      
I wish Coke was still cola, and a joint was a bad place to (G) be       
It was (A) back before Nixon lied to us all on T(D)V                                    
Before Microwave ovens, when a (G) girl could still (D) cook, and still (G) would                            
Is the (A) best of the free life behind us now                                    
And are the good times really over For (D) good 
                                                 
Stop rollin' downhill like a snowball headed for (G) hell      
Stand (A) up for the flag, and let's all ring the liberty (D) bell                                                                     
Let's make a Ford and a Chevy that'll still last ten years like they (G) should                                
The (A) best of the free life is still yet to come                                        
And the good times ain't really over for (D) good
