Bob Dylan – My Back Pages tab
Title: My Back Pages Artist: Bob Dylan Album: Another Side of Bob Dylan The chords vary from verse to verse and are never the same on the refrain ("Ah but I was so much older..."). If you are intent on learning the song as it is on the album, the following notes might help: Verse 1 is very different from the rest. You just gotta learn it. Verses 2, 3, 4, and 6 are identical. Verse 5 is similar to the other verses except the last part. The refrains have different variations each time. However, if youre not so picky about every detail, I recomend just learning the chords to the last verse and refrain and using that pattern throughout. Also, Dylan uses this little thing most of the G chords:--3--3--3----0--0--0----0--0--0----0--2--3----2--2--2----3--3--3--Capo 3 ------ C C Am Em Crimson flames tied through my ears F G C Rollin' high and mighty traps C Am Em C Pounced with fire on flaming roads F Em G Using ideas as my maps F Am G C "We'll meet on edges, soon," said I Am F G Proud 'neath heated brow. C Am C Ah, but I was so much older then, F G C I'm younger than that now. G G G G C Am Em Half-wracked prejudice leaped forth F G C "Rip down all hate," I screamed C Am Em Lies that life is black and white F G Spoke from my skull. I dreamed Am Em Romantic facts of musketeers F G Foundationed deep, somehow. C Am Em F Ah, but I was so much older then, G C I'm younger than that now. C Am Em Girls' faces formed the forward path F G C From phony jealousy C Am Em To memorizing politics F G Of ancient history Am Em Flung down by corpse evangelists F G Unthought of, though, somehow. C F C Ah, but I was so much older then, F G C I'm younger than that now. C Am Em A self-ordained professor's tongue F G C Too serious to fool C Am Em Spouted out that liberty F G Is just equality in school Am Em "Equality," I spoke the word F G As if a wedding vow. C Am Ah, but I was so much older then, F G C I'm younger than that now. C Am Em In a soldier's stance, I aimed my hand F G C At the mongrel dogs who teach C Am Em Fearing not that I'd become my enemy F G In the instant that I preach Am F C My existence led by confusion boats Am Em G Mutiny from stern to bow. C Am F C Ah, but I was so much older then, G C I'm younger than that now. C Am Em Yes, my guard stood hard when abstract threats F G C Too noble to neglect C Am Em Deceived me into thinking F G I had something to protect Am Em Good and bad, I define these terms F G Quite clear, no doubt, somehow. C Am F C Ah, but I was so much older then, G C I'm younger than that now. transcribed by orest email@example.com
