Cherry Bomb

John Mellencamp

Well I lived on the outskirts of town

In a eight room farmhouse, baby

When my brothers and friends were around

There was always somethin' doin'

Had me a couple of real nice girlfriends

Stopped by to see me every once in while

When I think back about those days

All I can do is sit and smile

That's when a smoke was a smoke

And groovin' was groovin'

And dancin' meant everything

We were young and we were improvin'

Laughin', laughin' with our friends

Holdin' hands meant somethin' baby

Outside the club, cherry bomb

Our hearts were really thumpin'

Say yeah yeah yeah

Say yeah yeah yeah

The winter days they last forever

But the weekends went by so quick

Went ridin' around this little country town

We were goin' nuts, girl, out in the sticks

One night, me with my big mouth

A couple guys had to put me in my place

When I see those guys these days

We just laugh and say do you remember when


Say yeah yeah yeah

Say yeah yeah yeah

Seventeen has turned thirty-five

I'm suprised that we're still livin'

If we've done any wrong

I hope that we're forgiven

Got a few kids on my own

And some days I still don't know what to do

I hope that they're not laughin' too loud

When they hear me talkin'

Like this to you
