Capo I

G D C G D G C G D 2x

G
I 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

Em Bm Am
Ah, but I know a place where we can go,
Em Cmaj7 D
that's still untouched by man
Em Bm Am
We'll sit and watch the clouds go by,
Em Cmaj7 D
and the tall grass wave in the wind
G D C
You can lay your head back on the ground,
Em Bm Am
and let your hair fall all around me
G D C
Offer up your best defense,
Em Bm Am Cmaj7 D
but this is the end, this is the end
G
of the innocence

G D C G D G C G D

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

Em Bm Am
Ah, but I know a place where we can go,
Em Cmaj7 D
that's still untouched by man
Em Bm Am
We'll sit and watch the clouds go by,
Em Cmaj7 D
and the tall grass wave in the wind
G D C
You can lay your head back on the ground,
Em Bm Am
and let your hair fall all around me
G D C
Offer up your best defense,
Em Bm Am 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,
Em C D
before we say goodbye

G D C
Just lay your head back on the ground,
Em Bm Am
and let your hair fall all around me
G D C
Offer up your best defense,
Em Bm Am Cmaj7 D
but this is the end, this is the end,
G
of the innocence

G D C G D G C G D 5x
