A VCR and a DVD 
There wasn't none of that crap back in 1970
We didn't know about a world wide web
It was a whole different game being played 
Back when I was a kid
You wanna get down in a cool way? 
Picture yourself on a beautiful day
With the big bell bottoms and groovy long hair
Just a walking in style with a portable CD player

Flash back to '72
Another summer in the neighbrohood
Hanging out with nothing to do
Sometimes we go driving around in my sister's Pinto
Crusing with the windows rolled down
We listen to the radio station
We were too damn poor to buy the 8-track tapes
But it was a good time don't wanna be inside
My momma wanna watch that TV
All God damn night

I'd be in bed with the radio on
I would listen to it all night long
Just to hear my favorite song
You'd have to wait but you could hear it on the AM radio

Suggestion from Mike (LeadGtr4FB@aol.com)

 The one thing I saw that could be more accurate is the intro for AM Radio. 
The way you had it seemed easier but sounds better when played like this.

e|-7---7-----7-----7-----5--5--5---7-7--5-5----|
B|-9---9-9---9-9---9-9---5--5--5---9-9--7-7----|
G|-9---9-9---9-9---9-9---6--6--6---8-8--6-6----|
D|-----9-----9-----9---------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------|

This is repeated a few times during the intro but also at some random times
during the rest of the song.

Suggestion from Nick Arciaga (jedirex311@earthlink.net)

I am not sure if this is accurate, but it is the general idea when they
play this live.

main riff (power chords):
   E D E D  A G A G 
e|-------------------|
B|-------------------|
G|-9-7-9-7-----------|
D|-9-7-9-7--7-5-7-5--|
A|-7-5-7-5--7-5-7-5--|
E|----------5-3-5-3--|

Thats the general idea, aside from Art screaming like crazy and lots of
neck slides.That's it!
