Capo 5
(all chords relative to capo)

Intro: C F C G

C                F
In Delaware when I was younger

C            G
I would live a life obscene

C             F
In the spring I had great hunger

C             G
I was Brando, I was Dean

Em
Blaspheming booted blue jeaned baby boy

Em
Oh, how I made them turn their heads

Em
The townie brownie girls, they jumped for joy

G
And begged me bless them in their beds

C F C G

C                F
In Delaware when I was younger

C           G       
I would row upon the lake

C               F
In the spring I had great hunger

C            G
I was Keats, I was Blake

Em
My pimpled pencilled pains I'd bring

Em
To frogs who sat entranced

Em
My drift dream ditties I would sing

G
The water striders danced

C F C G

C                F
In Delaware when I was younger

C                       G
They thought St. Andrew had sufficed

C                   F
But in the spring I had great hunger

C             G
I was Buddha, I was Christ

Em
You wicked wise men, where's your wonder?

Em
You Pharisees one day will pay

Em
See my lightning, hear my thunder

G
I am truth, I know the way

C F C G

C                F
In Delaware when I was younger

End on C
