Rocky burned up the movie screen
When I was turnin' seventeen
Tie-dyed shirts and Levi jeans
Lookin' cool at the Dairy Queen
Tryin' to impress a young woman in her Sunday dress

That was 1976, didn't know who I was yet
A pretty little blonde-haired girl
Stole my heart and changed my world

Two kids and a moonlit sky
A little love on a Friday night
Built a fire that just won't quit
And that was 1976

My high-school days are packed away
Set my sights on a bigger stage
Jimmy Carter moved to D.C.
A Georgia boy just like me
Life seemed easy, nothing much that we needed

And that was 1976, didn't know who I was yet
A pretty little blonde-haired girl
Stole my heart and changed my world

Two kids and a moonlit sky
A little love on a Friday night
Built a fire that just won't quit
That was 1976

Eight-track tapes were still in style
And Elvis was still alive
Wonder Woman sure looked fine
Bionic Man was still prime time
And that girl I liked
We kept on tryin' till we got it right

That was 1976, didn't know who I was yet
A pretty little blonde-haired girl
Stole my heart and changed my world

Two kids and a moonlit sky
A little love on a Friday night
Built a fire that just won't quit
And that was 1976

Yeah that was 1976, didn't know who we were yet
Built a fire that just won't quit
That was 1976
We built a fire that just won't quit
That was 1976
