End of the Innocence- Don Henley

This is just an expansion on other tabs/chords I've seen online. I HATE when
people don't post all the lyrics, or when they do post all the lyrics but only
fill out half the chords. So here you go:

G
Remember when the days were long
C
and rolled beneath a deep blue sky

G
Didn't have a care in the world
C D
With mommy and daddy standing by
G
But happily ever after fails
C
and we've been poisoned by these fairy tales
G
The lawyers dwell on small details
Em C D
Since daddy had to fly
Em7 Bm7 Am7
Ah but I know a place where we can go
Em7 Cmaj7 D
That's still untouched by man
Em7 Bm7 Am7
We'll sit and watch the clouds go by
Em7 Cmaj7 D
and the tall grass wave in the wind
G D C
you can lay your head back on the ground
Em7 Bm7 Am7
And let your hair fall all around me
G D C
Offer up your best defense
Em7 Bm7 Am7 Cmaj7 D
But this is the end, This is the end
G
Of the Innocence

Repeat Intro

G
Oh beautiful for spacious skies
C
But now those skies are threatening
G
They're beating plowshares into swords
C D
For this tired old man that we elected king

G
Armchair warriors often fail
C
And we've been poisoned by these fairytales
G
The lawyers clean up all details
Em C D
Since daddy had to lie
Em7 Bm7 Am7
But I know a place where we can go
Em7 Cmaj7 D
And wash away the sin
Em7 Bm7 Am7
We'll sit and watch the clouds go by
Em7 Cmaj7 D
And the tall grass wave in the wind
G D C
You can lay your head back on the ground
Em7 Bm7 Am7
Let your hair fall all around me
G D C
Offer up your best defense
Em7 Bm7 Am7 Cmaj7 D
But this is the end, This is the end
G
Of the Innocence


G
Who knows how long this will last
C
Or how we've come so far so fast
G
But somewhere back there in the dust
C D
That same small town in each of us
G
I need to remember this
C
So baby give me just one kiss
G
And let me take a long last look
C D
Before we say goodbye
G D C
Just lay your head back on the ground
Em7 Bm7 Am7
And let your hair fall all around me
G D C
Offer up your best defense
Em7 Bm7 Am7 Cmaj7 D
But this is the end, This is the end
G
of the Innocence

Repeat intro.
