INTRO

B(7)
When I was a little boy
B(7)
Way back home in Liverpool,
Em  Em/D    C#m7b5              C   D7        
    My mama told me, I was great    [riff]

B(7)
  Then when I was a teenager,
  B(7)
I knew that I had got something going,
Em  Em/D           C#m7b5              C   D7  
    All my friends told me, I was great    [riff]

B(7)
  And now I'm a man
  B(7)
A woman took me by the hand
Em        Em/D          C#m7b5               C   D7  
  And you know what she told me? I was great     [riff]

D
  I was in the greatest show on earth,
D
  For what it was worth
E
  Now I'm only thirty-two
E (break)           E E (break)               
  And all I wanna do,    is boogaloo, hey!   [chromatic lick)


B(7)
  I looked in the mirror,
B(7)
  I saw my wife and kids,
Em        Em/D           C#m7b5              C   D7  
  And you know what they told me? I was great    [riff]

D
  Yes, my name is Billy Shears,
            D
You know it has been for so many years,
E
  Now I'm only thirty-two
E (break)           E E (break)               
  And all I wanna do,    is boogaloo, hey!   [chromatic lick)

SOLO (slide guitar)

And you better believe it baby.
