Boys In The Trees - From Boys In The Trees - 1978

Em                   G
I'm home again in my old narrow bed
Em                        G
Where I grew tall and my feet hung over the end
F#m7                         Bm            G
The low beam room with the window looking out
         G            Cmaj7
On the soft summer garden
           F#m7              Bm
Where the boys grew in the trees

Em             G
Here I grew guilty
Em               G
And no one was at fault
Em                  
Frightened by the power
G
In every innocent thought
F#m7                     Bm            G
And the silent understanding passing down
 G            Cmaj7
From daughter to daughter
F#m7              Bm
Let the boys grow in the trees

Em            G
Do you go to them
Em            G
Or do you let them come to you
Em            
Do you stand in back
G
Afraid that you'll intrude
F#m7                     Bm            G
Deny yourself and hope someone will see
  G            Cmaj7
And live like a flower
F#m7              Bm
While the boys grow in the trees

Em                      G
Last night I slept in sheets the color of fire
Em                    
Tonight I lie alone again
        G
And I curse my own desires
F#m7                     Bm            G
Sentenced first to burn and then to freeze
 G            Cmaj7
And watch by the window
F#m7              Bm
Where the boys grew in the trees
F#m7              Bm    Gmaj9  Em
Boys in the trees
