my back pages
the byrds

intro: e esus4 (repeat 4 times)

e c#m abm
crimson flames tied through my ears
a b e
rollin’ high and mighty traps
e c#m abm
pounced with fire on flaming roads
a b
using ideas as my maps
c#m abm
“we’ll meet on edges, soon,” said i
a b
proud ‘neath heated brow.
e a e
ah, but i was so much older then,
a b e (intro riff twice)
i’m younger than that now.
half-wracked prejudice leaped forth
“rip down all hate,” i screamed
lies that life is black and white
spoke from my skull. i dreamed
romantic facts [flanks] of musketeers
foundationed deep, somehow.
ah, but i was so much older then,
bi’m younger than that now.
[the next two verses were left out by the byrds]
girls’ faces formed the forward path
from phony jealousy
to memorizing politics
of ancient history
flung down by corpse evangelists
unthought of, though, somehow.
ah, but i was so much older then,
i’m younger than that now.
a self-ordained professor’s tongue
too serious to fool
spouted out that liberty
is just equality in school
“equality,” i spoke the word
as if a wedding vow.
ah, but i was so much older then,
i’m younger than that now.
[the byrds pick it up here]
in a soldier’s stance, i aimed my hand
at the mongrel dogs who teach
fearing not that i’d become my enemy
in the instant that i preach
my pathway led [sisters fled] by confusion boats
mutiny from stern to bow.
ah, but i was so much older then,
i’m younger than that now.
[12-string guitar solo followed by the refrain]
yes, my guard stood hard when abstract threats
too n-ble to neglect
deceived me into thinking
i had something to protect
good and bad, i define these terms
quite clear, no doubt, somehow.
ah, but i was so much older then,
i’m younger than that now.
