Eels - Mistakes Of My Youth

From the album The Cautionary Tales of Mark Oliver Everett


Intro:
C  G/B  G  D  G
G  D/F#  C  D
G  D/F# D  C  D

G       D/F#         C
 In the waning days ahead
  D                        G
I gotta look back down the road
  D/F#           D       C     D
I know that it's not too late
G        D/F#               C
 All the stupid things I've said
    D                      G
And people I've hurt in my time
       D/F#           D      C     D
Well I hope that it's not my fate

C          D      Bm      C
 To keep defeating my own self
C           D      B       Em
 And keep repeating yesterday
C        G/B    G       D
 I can't keep defeating myself
C        G/B    G      D/A    C
 I can't keep repeating the mistakes of my youth

G       D/F#            C
 In the dark of night I might
   D                   G
Be able to make myself think
         D/F#    D       C     D
That I'm still a younger man
G             D/F#                C
 But when the light of day shines down
        D                    G
There's no way to get around it
     D/F#    D       C     D
I am not the younger man

C         D      Bm      C
 I keep defeating my own self
C           D      B  B/D#  Em
 And keep repeating yesterday
C        G/B    G       D
 I can't keep defeating myself
C        G/B    G      D/A    C
 I can't keep repeating the mistakes of my youth

C    C/D    C/E D
 The choice is  mine for making
Bm         C
 A better road ahead
C     C/D  C/E  D
 The road that I've been taking
Bm      Bm/F#     Em
 Headed for a dead-end
C         G/B     G       D/A   C/G
 But it's not too late to turn around

G  D/F# C  D
G  D/F# D  C  D

G        D/F#          C
  In the final moments I
D                       G
Hope that I know that I tried
   D/F#   D      C      D
To do the best I could

C          D      Bm      C
 To stop defeating my own self
C           D      B  [ch]B/D[/ch] Em  Em/D
 And stop repeating yesterday
C        G/B    G       D
 I can't keep defeating myself
C        G/B    G      D/A    C
 I can't keep repeating the mistakes of my youth

G  D/F# C  D      )
G  D/F# D  C  D   )[x6 repeat to fade]
