The Byrds (Bob Dylan)

Capo II

D Dsus4 4x

D       Bm          F#m
Crimson flames tied through my ears,
        G        A      D
rollin' high and mighty traps
          Bm      F#m
Countless fire on flaming roads,
      G           A
using ideas as my maps
       Bm             F#m
"We'll meet on edges, soon," said I,
G                   A
proud 'neath heated brow.
        D             G     D
Ah, but I was so much older then, 
    G       A         D
I'm younger than that now.

D            Bm        F#m
Half-wracked prejudice leaped forth,
     G        A        D
"rip down all hate," I screamed
          Bm      F#m
Lies that life is black and white,
G                      A
spoke from my skull, I dreamed
Bm                F#m
Romantic facts of musketeers,
    G                  A
foundationed deep, somehow.
        D             G     D
Ah, but I was so much older then, 
    G       A         D
I'm younger than that now.

     D         Bm        F#m
In a soldier's stance, I aimed my hand,
       G       A        D
at the mongrel dogs who teach
                 Bm            F#m
Fearing not that I'd become my enemy,
       G              A
in the instant that I preach
   Bm                F#m
My pathway led by confusion boats,
G                    A
mutiny from stern to bow.
        D             G     D
Ah, but I was so much older then, 
    G       A         D
I'm younger than that now.


D Bm F#m G A D  D Bm F#m G A  Bm F#m G A  

        D             G     D
Ah, but I was so much older then, 
    G       A         D
I'm younger than that now.

        D           Bm        F#m
Yes, my guard stood hard when abstract threats,
    G     A    D
too noble to neglect
            Bm   F#m
Deceived me into thinking,
      G               A
I had something to protect
D        Bm       F#m
Good and bad, I define these terms,
      G                    A
quite clear, no doubt, somehow?
        D             G     D
Ah, but I was so much older then, 
    G       A         D
I'm younger than that now.
