Intro: C F C G

C FIn Delaware when I was younger
C GI would live a life obscene
C FIn the spring I had great hunger
C GI was Brando, I was Dean
EmBlaspheming booted blue jeaned baby boy
EmOh, how I made them turn their heads
EmThe townie brownie girls, they jumped for joy
GAnd begged me bless them in their beds
C F C G
C FIn Delaware when I was younger
C G I would row upon the lake
C FIn the spring I had great hunger
C GI was Keats, I was Blake
EmMy pimpled pencilled pains I'd bring
EmTo frogs who sat entranced
EmMy drift dream ditties I would sing
GThe water striders danced
C F C G
C FIn Delaware when I was younger
C GThey thought St. Andrew had sufficed
C FBut in the spring I had great hunger
C GI was Buddha, I was Christ
EmYou wicked wise men, where's your wonder?
EmYou Pharisees one day will pay
EmSee my lightning, hear my thunder
GI am truth, I know the way
C F C G
C FIn Delaware when I was younger
End on C
