FRANKIE BALLARD - Young & Crazy

This song is from the album Sunshine & Whiskey(2014), released on 11 February 2014.
I loved the production of this song more than the lyrics. The performance was noteworthy, but it definitely had something missing. The power and energy that I expected from a song like this was not found. A little more bass and an energetic lead might have made this song better.

[INTRO] G F C x4
[VERSE]
   G                    D
One day, I'll slow and lay down,
         Em                                 C
Spend my weekends in a swing out on the wraparound.
         G                      D
Oh but these days, I'm on a mission
    Em                              C
To get these wild oats out of my system.
      C                     D
Yeah I might stay out all night,
           Em                     D
I've gotta do a little wrong so I know what's right.

[CHORUS]
         G              F
I wanna sit out on the porch
          C                     G              F      C
Telling stories 'bout my glory days when I'm pushing eighty.
          G          F         C
How am I ever gonna get to be old and wise
    F          C            G
If I ain't ever young and crazy?

[INSTRUMENTAL] G F C x2

[VERSE]
              G                          D
Now I might have to kiss no telling how many lips
          Em                          C
Before I ever really figure out what love is.
                     G                       D
Go through some heartbreaks, wake up with headaches,
                 Em                           C
Don't learn nothing 'til you make a lot of mistakes.
            C                      D
How will I know where to draw the line
             Em                     D
If I don't cross it a few hundred times?

[CHORUS]
         G              F
I wanna sit out on the porch
          C                     G              F      C
Telling stories 'bout my glory days when I'm pushing eighty.
          G          F         C
How am I ever gonna get to be old and wise
    F          C            G
If I ain't ever young and crazy?

[INSTRUMENTAL] G F C x2

[BRIDGE]
             C                D
Yeah I'm gonna stay out all night,
            Em                     D
I've gotta do a little wrong so I know what's right
           G               F              C           G
I've gotta live a lot of life if I'm gonna give good advice
            G       F           C
When I'm talking to my grand-babies
          G          F          C
How am I ever gonna get to be old and wise
   F              C             G
If I ain't ever young and crazy?


[CHORUS]
         G              F
I wanna sit out on the porch
          C                     G              F      C
Telling stories 'bout my glory days when I'm pushing eighty.
          G          F         C
How am I ever gonna get to be old and wise
    F          C            G
If I ain't ever young and crazy?

If I ain't ever young and crazy?
