Intro: E
 
Verse 1:
E                                  A             E
My Grandpa gave a wheat penny and I kept it in my pocket
E                                 B
I had big plans in my back yard to build me a space rocket
E                                         A                   E
I talked to my brother on a fake cb that I made from a tic-tac box
E                                              B            E
I packed my snowballs nice and tight but in the middle I put rocks
 
Pre-Chorus:
A                                                          E
Don't trade in your tic-tac box for a ball on the end of a chain
                                                        B
And don't go spending Grandpa's pennies buying into the game
 
Chorus:
          A               E
You gotta keep your heart young
B                     Dbm
Don't go growing old before your time has come
               A                  E
You can't take back what you have done
             B              E
You've gotta keep your heart young
 
Verse 2:
E                                        A                E
Dad took the wheels off of my bike and he pushed me down a hill
                                 B
But speed got the best of me and I took my first spill
E                             A            E
That was back when alcohol was only used on cuts
                                                B                E
It stung like hell so I jerked my leg and momma said it'd give me guts
 
Pre-Chorus:
A                                                          E
Don't trade in your tic-tac box for a ball on the end of a chain
                                                        B
And don't go spending Grandpa's pennies buying into the game
 
Chorus:
          A               E
You gotta keep your heart young
B                     Dbm
Don't go growing old before your time has come
               A                  E
You can't take back what you have done
             B              E
You've gotta keep your heart young
 
Verse 3:
                                          A           E
So take a picture of the one you love and put it in a locket
                                    B
Go dig up your time capsule and the blue prints for your rocket
E                               A                E
Keep in touch on a fake cb, that same old tic-tac box
                                                   B               E
Pack your snowballs a little less tight but in the middle still put rocks
 
Chorus:
    A               E
And keep your heart young
B                     Dbm
Don't go growing old before your time has come
               A                  E
You can't take back what you have done
             B              E
You've gotta keep your heart young
 

          A               E
You gotta keep your heart young
    B
Sometimes you don't die quick
     Dbm
Just like you wished you'd done
    A                E
The love is a loaded gun
             B              E
You've gotta keep your heart young
               A                  E      Dbm
You can't take back what you have done is done
             B              E
You've gotta keep your heart young
