CAPO ON THE 5TH

Cadd9 = 032033
"E" = 002033
Em = 022033
G= 320033

INTRO: Cadd9 E Em G

VERSE I

Cadd9                     E
When you’re young you hope to be
Em             G
Menacing in vanity
Cadd9       E
6 feet tall, maybe more
Em               G
Bigger now than before
Cadd9                 E
They said it was leaving me
Em                       G
The magic was leaving me
Cadd9                 E
I don’t think so
             Em           G
I don’t think so

CHORUS I

Cadd9                   E
They said it was leaving
Em                G
They said it with joy
Cadd9                                    E
Now I could make this last forever
                Em                G
And be a boy, and be a boy

VERSE II :
Cadd9                       E
When you’re young you hope to see
Em                               G
And carve your name into the street
Cadd9                              E
And bounce your words off satellites
Em                               G
That keep the wasted up tonight

Cadd9                 E
They said it was leaving me
Em                       G
The magic was leaving me
Cadd9                 E
I don’t think so
             Em           G
I don’t think so

CHORUS II

Cadd9                   E
They said it was leaving
Em                G
They said it with joy
Cadd9                                    E
Now I could make this last forever
                Em                G
And be a boy, and be a boy
Cadd9                   E
There’s safety in the jungle
Em                          G
If you treat it like a toy
Cadd9                            E
Make sure you talk to strangers
                Em                   G
And be a boy, and be a boy

Cadd9                 E
They said it was leaving me
Em                       G
The magic was leaving me
Cadd9                 E
I don’t think so
             Em         G
I don’t think so

Cadd9
All the boys are gonna be someone
E
Your time did come but now it's gone
Em
Your time did come but now it's gone
G
It takes a big man to be someone

Cadd9
All the boys are gonna be someone
E
Your time did come but now it's gone
Em
Your time did come but now it's gone
G
It takes a big man to be someone

Cadd9
I’m half your age and lived twice your life
E
And I own the streets, you walk tonight
Em
Your time did come but it's no more
G
It takes a big man to be someone
Cadd9                 E
They said it was leaving me
Em                       G
The magic was leaving me
Cadd9
I don´t think so
