Intro: G
 
Verse 1:
G                  D          Em C
 I can still find Wiley's house
G       D                Em
 Riding on my bike with eyes closed
        G                   D         Em C
 I can name every girl that he took out
G             D                 Em
 And from my memory, dial his house phone
 
Chorus:
         G             Bm  Em           C
Can you take me back when we were just kids
              G                  Bm         Em  Eb
Who weren't scared of getting older? -yeah yeah-
                D                       Am
'Cause no one knows you like they know you
             Em             C
And no one probably ever will
          G            Am
You can grow up, make new ones
      Em                          C           G D
But truth is there's nothing like old friends -oooh-
Em                      C           G  D    Em
  'Cause you can't make old friends -oooh- -mmm yeah-
 
Verse 2:
G                      D          Em C
 I can still feel the windows down
               G                     D                  Em
 Listening to Jimmy Eat World riding 3-wide on Blake's bench seat -yeah-
G                   D          Em C
 My God, it's been ten years now
          G               D
 I would have his back tomorrow
                 Em                         C
 And he'd still fight anyone who tried to touch me
 
Chorus:
         G             Bm  Em           C
Can you take me back when we were just kids
              G                  Bm         Em     Eb
Who weren't scared of getting older? -yeah yeah oooh-
                D                       Am
'Cause no one knows you like they know you
             Em             C
And no one probably ever will
          G            Am
You can grow up, make new ones
      Em                          C           G D
But truth is there's nothing like old friends -oooh-
Em                      C           G  D  Em  C
  'Cause you can't make old friends -oooh-
 
Bridge:
G                    D             Em
 And I've got some good friends now
G                 D                  Em
 But I've never seen their parents' back porch
G                        D             Em C
 I wouldn't change how things turned out
              G              D
 But there's no one in this time zone
                Em                 C
 Who knows what inline skates that I wore
 
Chorus 2:
         G             Bm  Em           C
Can you take me back when we were just kids
              G                  Bm         Em     Eb
Who weren't scared of getting older? -yeah yeah oooh-
                D                       Am
'Cause no one knows you like they know you
             Em             C
And no one probably ever will
          G            Am
You can grow up, make new ones
          Em     C
But the truth is
          D            Am               Em
That we grow up, then wish we could go back then
                     C           G D  Em
There's nothing like old friends -oooh-
                      C          G D Em C G
'Cause you can't make old friends -oooh-
