My Back Pages Chords – Bob Dylan V5

 Intro:  C Csus4    (4X)   

 C Am Em 
Crimson flames tied through my ears
         F G C 
Rollin' high and mighty trap
 C Am Em       
Countless fire on flaming road
       F G  
Using ideas as my maps
        Am Em            
"We'll meet on edges, soon," said I
 F G 
Proud 'neath heated brow.
         C Am Em 
Ah, but I was so much older then,
     F G C  
I'm younger than that now.

 C Am Em 
Half-wracked prejudice leaped forth
      F G C 
"Rip down all hate," I screamed
 C Am Em 
Lies that life is black and white
       F G 
Spoke from my skull. I dreamed
    Am Em 
Romantic flanks of Musketeers
      F G 
Foundationed deep, somehow.
         C Am Em 
Ah, but I was so much older then,
     F G C  
I'm younger than that now.

       C Am Em 
In a soldier's stance, I aimed my hand
        F G C 
At the mongrel dogs who teach
         C Am Em      
Fearing not I'd become my enemy
        F G 
In the instant that I preach
 Am Em         
Existence led by confusion boats
 F G 
Mutiny from stern to bow.
         C Am Em 
Ah, but I was so much older then,
     F G C  
I'm younger than that now.

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

    C Am Em 
My guard stood hard when abstract threats
     F G C 
Too noble to neglect
     C Am Em 
Deceived me into thinking
       F G 
I had something to protect
 Am Em 
Good and bad, I define these terms
       F G         
Quite clear, no doubt, somehow.
         C Am Em 
Ah, but I was so much older then,
     F G C                  
I'm younger than that now.
