My Back Pages
Bob Dylan

[C]Crimson[Am] flames tied[Em] through my ears
Rollin'[D] high and[G] mighty[C] traps
[C]Pounced with[Am] fire on[Em] flaming roads
Using[D] ideas as my[G] maps
"We'll[Am] meet on edges,[Em] soon" said I,
[D]Proud 'neath heated[G] brow

Ah, but[C] I was[Am] so much[Em] older[D] then
I'm[C] younger[G] than that[C] now

[C]Half-wracked[Am] prejudice[Em] leaped forth,
"Rip[D] down all[G] hate," I[C] screamed,
[C]Lies that[Am] life is[Em] black and white
Spoke[D] from my skull I[G] dreamed.
Ro[Am]mantic facts of[Em] musketeers
Foun[D]dationed deep, some[G]how,

Ah, but[C] I was[Am] so much[Em] older[D] then,
I'm[C] younger[G] than that[C] now

Girl's[C] faces[Am] formed the[Em] forward path 
From[D] phony [G]jealou[C]sy,
To[C] memor[Am]izing[Em] politics 
Of[D] ancient histo[G]ry
Flung[Am] down by corpse e[Em]vangelist
Un[D]thought of, though,[G] somehow,

Ah, but[C] I was[Am] so much[Em] older[D] then,
I'm[C] younger[G] than that[C] now

A[C] self-or[Am]dained pro[Em]fessor's tongue
Too[D] seri[G]ous to[C] fool
[C]Spouted[Am] out that[Em] liberty
Is just e[D]quality in[G] school.
"E[Am]quality," I[Em] spoke the word
As[D] if a wedding[G] vow

Ah, but[C] I was[Am] so much[Em] older[D] then,
I'm[C] younger[G] than that[C] now

In a[C] soldier's[Am] stance I[Em] aimed my hand
At the[D] mongrel[G] dogs who[C] teach
Fearing[C] not that I'd be[Am]come my[Em] enemy
In the[D] instant that I[G] preach.
My[Am] pathway led by con[Em]fusion boats
[D]Mutiny from stern to[G] bow

Ah, but[C]I was so[Am] much[Em] older[D] then,
I'm[C] younger[G] than that[C] now

Yes my[C]guards stood[Am]hard 
When[Em]abstract threats
Too[D] noble[G] to ne[C]glect
De[C]ceived me[Am] into[Em] thinking I
Had[D] something to[G] protect.
[Am]Good and bad, I de[Em]fine these terms
Quite[D] clear, no doubt, some[G]how,

Ah, but[C] I was[Am] so much[Em] older[D] then,
I'm[C] younger[G] than that[C] now
