F            C         F          C        F      C           F       C
If there's a goal that everyone remembers, it was back in old seventy-two
   F                C            F              C           F       C         F              C
We all squeezed the stick and we all pulled the trigger and all I remember is sitting beside you
F            C             F          C            F         C           F      C
You said you didn't give a fuck about hockey and I never saw someone say that before
    F       C           F               C                  F            C       F     C
You held my hand and we walked home the long way, you were loosening my grip on Bobby Orr

C          G                  F          C  F  C
 Isn't it amazing anything's accomplished?
C                  G                   F  C  F  C
When the little sensation gets in your way
          C             G             F
Not one ambition whispering over your shoulder
C                 G             F     C  F  C  F  C  F  C
Isn't it amazing, you can do anything?

   F          C      F            C             F              C               F      C
We hung out together every single moment 'cause that's what we thought married people do
   F              C       F            C         F              C          F      C
Complete with the grip of artificial chaos and believing in the country of me and you
F         C         F             C            F          C         F      C
Crisis of faith and crisis in the Kremlin and, yeah, we'd heard all that before
     F     C                  F             C           F             C         F         C
It's wintertime, the house is solitude with options and loosening the grip on a fake cold war

C          G                    F         C  F  C
 Isn't it amazing what you can accomplish?
C                      G                  F  C  F  C
When you don't let the nation get in your way
              C             G             F
And not one ambition whispering over your shoulder
C                 F             G
Isn't it amazing, you can do anything?

G
 Next to your comrades in the National Fitness Program
G
 Caught in some eternal flexed arm hang
G
 Dropping to the mat in a fit of laughter
G                                 F        C  F  C  F  C  F  C
 Showed no patience, tolerance or restraint

F   C       F              C         F    C    F      C
Fireworks exploding in the distance, temporary towers soar
F   C     F         C        F             C        F  C
Fireworks emulating heaven, 'til there are no stars anymore
F   C     F                  C       F    C    F      C
Fireworks aiming straight at heaven, temporary towers soar
 F             C        F             C        F             C        F  C
'Til there are no stars shining up in heaven, 'til there are no stars anymore

C          G                     F        C  F  C
 Isn't it amazing what you can accomplish?
C                  G                   F  C  F  C
When the little sensation gets in your way
     C             G               F
No ambition whispering over your shoulder
    C                G                     F  C  F  C
Oh, isn't it amazing what you can accomplish?
C              G                    F  C  F  C
This one thing probably never goes away
        C                 G                  F   C  F  C
I think this one thing is always supposed to stay
F        C     F                C   F  C  F  C
This one thing doesn't have to go away
