          G                      C

                                                            G                     C      
Well I find myself in reverie, 'bout what we might have had
And what might have been
G                      C
We had something going once
That was such a long, long time ago
       G             C     G                    C
It was way back in '76 our friendship formed of pure innocence
G                      C
We first met on Mathew Street
And we heard something that would set us free
Em                  G                             D
A sign stands over a door, it says "Four lads who shook the world"

Am                      C            Em               C
In the depths of those heady nights we would dream of those bright lights
Oh my friend, Oh my friend, Oh my friend

G     G/F#     C              Em
Somewhere tonight out on the street
G    G/F#         C     D      Em
Somewhere beneath this city's heat
               C             D       Em
In the eyes of strangers who pass me by
            C     D   Em
Life is cruel and so unkind
Oh, Oh the SPIRIT OF '76

And my friend John, he went away and he made some mistakes
Spent time in Walton jail
And now when I see him we still talk but there's no light shining in his eyes
And Susie, she was 17 and more beauty in this world I swear you'll never see
I was gonna be king and she was gonna be queen
But now all she does is hide behind the tears

If there was more sense in this world and work wasn't so hard to find
You would not be going your way, I would not be going mine
Oh my friend, Oh my friend, Oh my friend

G G/F#
Em            C                     D                       Em
Mersey lights shine in the distance same as they did for us then
Em                  C                      D                     Em
Mersey lights shine bright in the distance where are you now my friend?
        G                       C               D
You see some nights when I can't sleep, I still think of you
Am                                    G
Of all the promises, all the dreams we shared
A                         G
I know those lights still call to you
C                    C                 G
I can hear them now, I can hear them now

And now me, I've seen my dreams come true
But that don't make me no hero
I'm just one of the lucky few
If a man can't change the world these days
I still believe a man can change his own destiny
But the price is high that has got to be paid
For everyone who survives there are many who fail
Seen my friends caught out in that crossfire
All their dreams and hopes smashed on the funeral pyre

I will never give in until the day that I die
I get myself some independence
Carve out a future with these two bare hands
Oh my friend, Oh my friend, Oh my friend
