End of the Innocence- Don Henley

This is just an expansion on other tabs/chords I've seen online. I HATE when 
people don't post all the lyrics, or when they do post all the lyrics but only 
fill out half the chords. So here you go: 

G               
Remember when the days were long
        C 
and rolled beneath a deep blue sky
G
Didn't have a care in the world
          C          D  
With mommy and daddy standing by
      G
But happily ever after fails
                       C
and we've been poisoned by these fairy tales
      G
The lawyers dwell on small details
          Em     C       D 
Since daddy had to fly
          Em7       Bm7           Am7 
Ah but I know a place where we can go
Em7           Cmaj7         D
That's still untouched by man
Em7            Bm7          Am7
We'll sit and watch the clouds go by
           Em7        Cmaj7         D                   
and the tall grass wave in the wind
            G           D             C
you can lay your head back on the ground
  Em7        Bm7      Am7  
And let your hair fall all around me
G      D         C 
Offer up your best defense
      Em7        Bm7  Am7  Cmaj7       D
But this is the end,           This is the end
           G             
Of the Innocence

Repeat Intro

G
Oh beautiful for spacious skies
C
But now those skies are threatening
G
They're beating plowshares into swords
C                           D
For this tired old man that we elected king

G
Armchair warriors often fail
               C
And we've been poisoned by these fairytales
G
The lawyers clean up all details
      Em    C      D
Since daddy had to lie
      Em7       Bm7           Am7
But I know a place where we can go
Em7    Cmaj7         D
And wash away the sin
      Em7            Bm7          Am7
We'll sit and watch the clouds go by
        Em7        Cmaj7         D
And the tall grass wave in the wind
        G           D             C
You can lay your head back on the ground
 Em7     Bm7       Am7 
Let your hair fall all around me
      G      D         C
Offer up your best defense
Em7        Bm7       Am7   Cmaj7       D
But this is the end,      This is the end
        G
Of the Innocence


G
Who knows how long this will last
C
Or how we've come so far so fast
G
But somewhere back there in the dust
C                       D
That same small town in each of us
G
I need to remember this 
C
So baby give me just one kiss
G
And let me take a long last look
C             D
Before we say goodbye
     G         D        C
Just lay your head back on the ground
     Em7     Bm7       Am7
And let your hair fall all around me
G      D       C
Offer up your best defense
Em7            Bm7   Am7   Cmaj7       D
But this is the end,      This is the end 
       G
of the Innocence
