Body Of Years -Mother Mother 
Kenny Perry

this is close I had a bit of trouble hearing this one,couldn’t find 
anything on the net, guess I'm the first to post this one. 
Ryan sure plays a lot of variations; great band, though.


[Intro]
F#m A D G


F#m                   A
All the remains of a cadaver of days 
       D                      G
I keep hidden away, keep them there just in case 
          F#m                           A
I want to visit that place and blow the dust from the bones 
      D                    G
Off a body of years that I leave all alone 
       D                                
Just a body of years 
        F#m                     A
See the skin disappears and the blood turns to stone 
     D                   G
In a body of years now a pile of bones 
       F#m    
Like a sheet of veneers 
       A                             
Each a piece of my soul 
       D                    G
Like a body of years that I leave all alone 
            D                   D                [ F#m ]
It's just a body of years now a pile of bones, you know 


F#m  A          D 
 Old....soul who falls down 
G                      F#m        
Can't stop tripping on these 
     A         D
Old....roads I go down 
G
Get back up and get my... 


F#m                     A               
Foot in the door and my face on the page 
        D                        G
Make my mark in the world with a bat and a blade 
       F#m                   A
It’s a body of work that you can't ever change 
       D                      G
Like a body of years that you take to your grave 


            D
It's just a body of years 
       E
That I leave all alone 
       F#m/A
Just a body of years 
      F#m 
Now a pile of bones 
       Bm
Like a sheet of veneers 
       G
Each a piece of my sou-ou-ou-ou-oul 


F#m  A           D    
 Old....soul who falls down 
G                      F#m
Can't stop tripping on these 
     A         D 
Old....roads I go down 
G                   Bm
Get back up but I'm an 
     G          D
Old....soul who falls down 
C#m                    F#m
Can't stop tripping on these 
  A         D            G
Ooooo-o-o-o-old roads 


            D
It's just a body of years 
       E
That I leave all alone 
       F#m/A
Just a body of years 
      F#m 
Now a pile of bones 
       Bm
Like a sheet of veneers 
       E
Each a piece of my soul 
       F#m/A                F#m 
Like a pile of shit I can't seem to forget 
       Bm                   G
Just a body of years that I leave all alo-o-o-o-one 


D    F#   Em    D
Tell tale diary pages 
Bb                           A
They unveil a ghost from the ages 
     D         D/C#       C                        Bb
When bodies of years were breaking from all of the weight 

Of diary pages 
G
Tell tale diary pages 
A Bb        A
Ah ah ah ah ah
