Backwards With Time

capo 1st or tune down 1/2 step and capo 2nd

The harp part by Keith:

For notes that are blown I’ll just write the number, for notes that are drawn I’ll write 
before the number. Listen to the song for bends, blended notes etc…
D4 4 D4 4 6 D5 5 4 D4 4 3, D4 4 D4 4 6 D5 5 4 D4 4 3, D4 4 D4 4 D4 5 D5 5 4, 4 D4 4 6 D5

Same thing for intro and in between each verse


C           F       C                  G
Folk always told me that my heart would grow
C             F        C                G
The older the man yeah the stronger the stone
Am G F        C
Am I losing my mind
C            F             C
Am I growing backwards with time

C            F       C                    G
Some say with age that our purpose comes clear
C F C G
I see the opposite happening here
Am G F C
Are we losing the fight
C F C
Are we growing backwards with time

Am    G         F        C
I was young and love was fun
C          G      C
Now its so serious
Am         G       F     C
Now all my fun has equal pain
C            G              C
Theres something wrong with this

Am G F C
For all I know theres more I don’t
C G C
Oh the little I have learned
Am G F C
For every year of knowledge gained
C G C
Is a negative year ive earned

Folk always told me that my heart would grow
C F C G
The older the man yeah the stronger the stone
Am G F C
Am I losing my mind

thanks for posting this.. what a great song. Just a quick suggestion. When playing the F chord during the verses, i recommend adding a little flare on the high E string-3rd fret. Just on that first stroke. sounds perfect!

I THINK THIS WAS PERFECT EXCEPT MAYBE THE SECOND FRET FOR BOTH VERSIONS IS BEST
