                VERSE 1:
        D
Dented cars make me think of you
G             D
sitting on a red leather stool
G                   D         Bm
drinking with your sunglasses on
        A             G
at the bowling alley bar.

VERSE 2:
         D
And the sound of the crashing pins
   G               D
behind us when we kissed
    G                   D       Bm
the night I wrecked my father's car
        A               G       (G/F#)
behind the bowling alley bar.

PRE-CHORUS:
Em            G
I'm so sorry Donna,
A
sorry about your sunglasses.
Em                G
I didn't mean to step on them;
                                A
I didn't mean to laugh when you cried.

CHORUS:
              G  D      A       D
'Cause it was ne-ver a waste of time
     G                 D
to drink beer by your side
     G         Bm     D 
and watch the fallen pins
 A      G
set up right again.

INTERLUDE:
D G D G D Bm A G

VERSE 3:
        D
Skinny girls in tight red jeans
G             D
kicking cigarette machines;
G               D    Bm
that old woman all alone
        A              G        (F#/G) 
dirty dancing by the phones.

PRE-CHORUS:
Em         (F#/G)  G
Driving circles at 3am,
          A
throwing rocks at mailboxes,
Em        (F#/G) G
you could never see the stars
                              A
with those plastic sunglasses on.

CHORUS:
           G  D      A       D
But it was ne-ver a waste of time
    G                  D
to get drunk by your side
     G         Bm     D 
and watch the fallen pins
 A      G               
set up right again.

(A Bm C#m)  D
