And then slide down the neck and start playing the verses. I _think_ that you can pretty much just get away with chords here. Anyway, that's all I know how to do at this point. If anyone figures out any little lead parts to spruce this up, let me know. E A Growing up today, there's many mountains you must climb C D You're not the only one, 'Cause everybody's on that line E A Hey mister know it all, what do you recommend? C D You think you know the answers but the questions never end E5 F#5 G5 A5 Young hearts better hold on C5 D5 Beyond the innocence your youth is gone E5 F#5 So look in your mirror G5 A5 You got nothing to lose C5 D5 Don't waste your time away thinkin' 'bout yesterday's blues

E A Born outta passion to a world gone cold C D You wear it on your shoulders, it's a heavy, heavy load I know E A Love and its emotions come knocking at your door C D Young hearts will be broken and time's the only cure E5 F#5 G5 A5 Young hearts better hold on C5 D5 Beyond the innocence your youth is gone E5 F#5 So look in your mirror G5 A5 It'll tell you the truth C5 D5 Don't waste your time away thinkin' 'bout yesterday's blues

*** Sorry, I haven't figured out the solo *** *** If anyone knows it, I'd really *** *** appreciate the help. *** (Guitar tacit) Temptation makes us fall from grace But the angels were sinners and the sinners saints Forgive yourself cause we're all the same Everybody rides on the karma train E5 F#5 G5 A5 Young hearts better hold on C5 D5 Beyond your innocence your youth is gone E5 F#5 G5 A5 Look in you mirror, it'll tell you the truth C5 Don't waste your time away D5 Don't waste your life away, no, no E5 F#5 Live today G5 A5 There's no time to lose C5 Cause when tomorrow comes D5 It's all just yesterday's news

That's all I know of this one. I hope it's more or less accurate. Sorry about the lack of the solo. I may get around to it, I don't know. BTW, I have also started Mr. Bluesman from this album. I know the basic chords, etc. Basically enough to go on _except_ I don't know the solo. E-mail me if you'd like to see what I've got so far. Correction, etc. (especially the addition of the solo) are strongly encouraged. Enjoy Matthew M Holladay holladay@engin.umich.edu ------------------------
