Keep Your Heart Young - Brandi Carlile
Tuned Down a Half Step

This is done off the version from youtube. When the song comes out on record I 
will check it to make sure its still good.


[Verse]

G                                   C           G
Grandpa gave me a wheat pennie and I put it in my pocket
G                                  D
I had big plans in my back yard to build me a space rocket
G                                       C                      G
I talked to my brother on a fake CB that I made from a tic-tac box
G                                               D             G
I packed my snowballs nice and tight but in the middle I put rocks


[Pre-Chorus]

C                                                       G
Don’t trade in your tic-tac box for a ball on the end of a chain
G                                                       D
And don’t go spending Grandpa’s pennies buying into the game


[Chorus]

           C                   G
You gotta keep your heart young
D                       B/G             
Don’t go growin old before your time has come
                C                    G
You can’t take back what you have done
                D               G
You’ve gotta keep your heart young


[Verse]

Dad took the wheels off of my bike and he pushed me down a hill
But speed got the best of me and I took my first spill
That was back when alcohol was only used on cuts
It stung like hell so I turned my leg and momma said it’d give me guts


[Pre-Chorus]

Don’t trade in your tic-tac box for a ball on the end of a chain
And don’t go spending Grandpa’s pennies buying into the game


[Chorus]

You gotta keep your heart young
Don’t go growin old before your time has come
You can’t take back what you have done
You’ve gotta keep your heart young


[Verse]

So take a picture of the one you love and put it in a locket
Go dig up your time capsule and the blue prints for your rocket
Keep in touch on a fake CB, that same old tic-tac box
Pack your snowballs a little less tight but in the middle still put rocks


[Chorus]

And keep your heart young
Don’t go growin old before your time has come
You can’t take back what you have done
You’ve gotta keep your heart young


[Outro]

You gotta keep your heart young
Sometimes you don’t die quick
Just like you wished you’d done
Though love is a loaded gun
You’ve gotta keep your heart young
You can’t take back what you have done
You’ve gotta keep your heart young

I'm pretty sure your B/G should be an Em

It's essentially the same thing. I leave my bottom two fingers down in relation to the G chord for the entire song (D and G on the B and E strings) except for on the D chord and therefore the only difference between B/G and Em is the 6th on the D string (E). Playing it as B/G leaves that note as a D whereas playing Em with the bottom fingers adds the E. Both are correct. Essentially they are just a different voicing, one with the 5th and one with the 6th. The Em works perfectly fine there. I like to play the B/G and find that voicing to fit in better with the rest of the song but in all reality both work perfectly fine and are correct. Thanks for the comment!!!
