CAPO: 4th Fret



(C)    (Am)        (Em)
Crimson flames tied through my ears
       (F)      (G)    (C)
Rolling high and mighty traps
         (Am)    (Em)
Countless fire on flaming roads
     (F)         (G)
Using ideas as my maps
       Am             Em
"We'll meet on edges, soon", said I
F                   G
Proud 'neath heated brow
        C             F     C
Ah, but I was so much older then 
    F       G         C
I'm younger than that now


             Am   Em
Half-wracked prejudice leaped forth
     F        G        C
"Rip down all hate", I screamed
          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
Foundation deep, somehow
        C             F     C
Ah, but I was so much older then
    F       G         C
I'm younger than that now


             Am         Em
Girls' faces formed the forward path
     F      G     C
From phoney jealousy
        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


INSTRUMENTAL: C  Am  Em  F  G  C  Am  Em  F  G  Am  Em  F  G


        C             F     C
Ah, but I was so much older then
    F       G         C
I'm younger than that now


               Am        Em
My guard stood hard when abstract threats
    F     G     C
Too noble to neglect
            Am   Em
Deceived me into thinking
      F               G
I had something to protect
C        Am       Em
Good and bad, I define these terms
      F                    G
Quite clear, no doubt, somehow
        C             F     C
Ah, but I was so much older then
    F       G         C
I'm younger than that now


OUTRO:     (## fade to end ##)
    F       G         C
I'm younger than that now
    F       G         C
I'm younger than that now
    F       G         C
I'm younger than that now
