Kathy Mattea - The Innocent Years




INTRO: F  Am7  F  Am7  F  Am7  F

          C
I need to go down and wash my face
            F                    Dm7
Deep in the river of my old home place
          Am          G           C            G     C-G
I need to walk in the waters that once gave me life
            C
Go over and walk the old railroad tracks
             F                     Dm7
See if I can follow it all the way back
Am      G        C         F    
Back to where my vision is clear
G                       F
Back to the days of the innocent years


           C
Though I'd trade it all back in
             F                    Dm7
For just one day like it was back then
       Am        G         C                G    C-G
Back before just living my life got in the way
          C
To see my face at sixteen again
                      F                  Dm7
When the boy down the street was my best friend
Am       G           C      F    
When his smile took away my tears
G                       F
Back in the days of the innocent years


CHORUS:
               Am
You might grow wiser every day
              F
But there's a price you have to pay
           Dm7           F
The girl I was just disappeared
  G                      F
I left her behind in the innocent years


INTERLUDE: F  Am7  F  Am7  F  Am7  F


        C
Now and then when the sun goes down
              F                Dm7
I can see the moon over my hometown
      Am     G        C             G   C-G
I can almost hear the train rushing by
           C
I close my eyes and say a prayer
                 F                    Dm7
To the wide eyed girl that I lost somewhere
Am        G          C       F    
Maybe someday she'll find me here
    G                   F
And lead me back to the innocent years


CHORUS:
               Am
You might grow wiser every day
              F
But there's a price you have to pay
           Dm7           F
The girl I was just disappeared
G                      F
Left her behind in the innocent years


CHORUS:
           Am
When I get lost along the way
            F
And I can't see the light of day
      Dm7             F
I can almost feel her near
G                      F
Calling me back to the innocent years, yeah, yeah
