Boys In The Trees - From Boys In The Trees - 1978

Em                   G
I'm home again in my old narrow bed
Em                        G
Where I grew tall and my feet hung over the end
F#m7                         Bm            C
The low beam room with the window looking out
         G            Cmaj7
On the soft summer garden
           F#m7              Bm
Where the boys grew in the trees

Em             G
Here I grew guilty
Em               G
And no one was at fault
Frightened by the power
In every innocent thought
F#m7                     Bm            C
And the silent understanding passing down
 G            Cmaj7
From daughter to daughter
F#m7              Bm
Let the boys grow in the trees

Em            G
Do you go to them
Em            G
Or do you let them come to you
Do you stand in back
Afraid that you'll intrude
F#m7                     Bm          C
Deny yourself and hope someone will see
  G            Cmaj7
And live like a flower
F#m7              Bm
While the boys grow in the trees

Em                      G
Last night I slept in sheets the color of fire
Tonight I lie alone again
And I curse my own desires
F#m7                     Bm            C
Sentenced first to burn and then to freeze
 G            Cmaj7
And watch by the window
F#m7              Bm
Where the boys grew in the trees
F#m7              Bm    Gmaj9  Em
Boys in the trees

Thank you for finally putting this up here. Really. I've been waiting for a long time for the chords, at least. :D

Although, I think in the line where it says, "The low beam room with the window looking out..." On "out", I think it should be a C instead of a G. Other than that, it sounds great!

Thanks and you're very welcome. You are very right, It's a misprint on my part, for some reason wrote G instead of C, thanks for alerting me to it. I have corrected it, I am now waiting for it to be updated.

I want to post or [tab]
