Carole King – Goin Back chords

Chords
Transpose:
Goin’ Back (Goffin – King)

Although I love Dusty’s and the Byrds’ versions, this is my take on Carole’s 
version from the Writer Album (1969). The La La Las were done with James Taylor. 
The key of G major is as on the record. Acknowledgement to other UG versions for the lyrics.

Verse 1
G Dm7/G GI think I'm goin' back to the things I learned so well in my youth
G Dm7/G GI think I'm returning to those days when I was young enough to know the truth
Em7 Bm7Now there are no games to only pass the time
Em7 GNo more electric trains, no more trees to climb
Am7 Am7/D GBut thinking young and growing older is no sin
Am7 Am7/D GAnd I can play the game of life to win
Verse 2 I can recall a time when I wasn't ashamed to reach out to a friend Now I think I've got a lot more than just my toys to lend Now there's more to do than watch my sailboat glide But every day can be a magic carpet ride A little bit of courage is all we lack So catch me if you can, I'm goin' back
G Dm7/G La la la la la la la la la la la
G Dm7/G La la la la la la la la la
Em7 Bm7Now there's more to do than watch my sailboat glide
Em7 GBut every day can be a magic carpet ride
Am7 Am7/D GA little bit of courage is all we lack
Am7 Am7/D GSo catch me if you can, I'm goin' back
And so on Harder Chords Dm7/G = G11 (notes G D F A C) Am7/D = D11 (notes D A C E G)
