My Back Pages chords
Bob Dylan
E C#m G#mCrimson flames tied through my ears,
A B Erollin' high and mighty traps
C#m G#mCountless fire on flaming roads,
A Busing ideas as my maps
C#m G#m"We'll meet on edges, soon," said I,
A Bproud 'neath heated brow.
E A EAh, but I was so much older then,
A B EI'm younger than that now.
E C#m G#mHalf-wracked prejudice leaped forth,
A B E"rip down all hate," I screamed
C#m G#mLies that life is black and white,
A Bspoke from my skull, I dreamed
C#m G#mRomantic facts of musketeers,
A Bfoundationed deep, somehow.
E A EAh, but I was so much older then,
A B EI'm younger than that now.
E C#m G#mGirls' faces formed the forward path,
C#m G#mTo memorizing politics,
C#m G#mFlung down by corpse evangelists,
A BUn thought of, though, somehow.
E A EAh, but I was so much older then,
A B EI'm younger than that now.
E C#m G#mA self-ordained professor's tongue,
C#m G#mSpouted out that liberty,
A Bis just equality in school
C#m G#m"Equality," I spoke the word,
E A EAh, but I was so much older then,
A B EI'm younger than that now.
E C#m G#mIn a soldier's stance, I aimed my hand,
A B Eat the mongrel dogs who teach
C#m G#mFearing not that I'd become my enemy,
A Bin the instant that I preach
C#m G#mMy pathway led by confusion boats,
A Bmutiny from stern to bow.
E A EAh, but I was so much older then,
A B EI'm younger than that now.
E A EAh, but I was so much older then,
A B EI'm younger than that now.
E C#m G#mYes, my guard stood hard when abstract threats,
A B Etoo noble to neglect
C#m G#mDeceived me into thinking,
A BI had something to protect
E C#m G#mGood and bad, I define these terms,
A Bquite clear, no doubt, somehow?
E A EAh, but I was so much older then,
A B EI'm younger than that now.
