 G
 Remember when the days were long
 C
and rolled beneath a deep blue sky
 G
 Didn't have a care in the world
 CD
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
 EmCD
Since daddy had to fly    
 Em7Bm7Am7
Ah but I know a place where we can go
 Em7Cmaj7D
 That's still untouched by man
 Em7Bm7Am7
 We'll sit and watch the clouds go by
 Em7Cmaj7D
and the tall grass wave in the wind  
 GDC
you can lay your head back on the ground
 Em7Bm7Am7
And let your hair fall all around me
 GDC
 Offer up your best defense
 Em7Bm7Am7Cmaj7D
But this is the end,           This is the end
 G
Of the Innocence

Repeat Intro

Oh beautiful for spacious skies
But now those skies are threatening
They're beating plowshares into swords
For this tired old man that we elected king
Armchair warriors often fail
And we've been poisoned by these fairytales
The lawyers clean up all details
Since daddy had to lie
But I know a place where we can go
And wash away the sin
We'll sit and watch the clouds go by
And the tall grass wave in the wind
You can lay your head back on the ground
Let your hair fall all around me
Offer up your best defense
But this is the end, This is the end
Of the Innocence

Who knows how long this will last
Or how we've come so far so fast
But somewhere back there in the dust
That same small town in each of us
I need to remember this
So baby give me just one kiss
And let me take a long last look
Before we say goodbye

Just lay your head back on the ground
And let your hair fall all around me
Offer up your best defense
But this is the end
This is the end of the Innocence

Repeat Intro to end.
