Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Past Like A Mask  Rodney Crowell

[C#]I was told to [G#]be a man was [F#]build defences [C#]strong
[F#]Keep your woman [C#]in her place and [F#]she’ll keep hangin’ [G#]on
Now I’ve grown [F#]to realise my [Fm]life’s been filled with [F#]lies
[C#]A tread I’ve been [F#]hangin’ on has [D#m]broken in her [G#]eyes
If I could let my [F#]heart be known in [Fm]spite walls so [F#]high
[C#]I might taste those [F#]bitter tears that I’ve [D#m]never learned to[G#] cry

Chorus #1:
But I’ve got a [F#]pa-[G#]ast like a [Bbm]mask
[F#]And I can see it [C#]in her face, [F#]the many years I [C#]can’t erase
[F#]A broken heart I [C#]can’t replace in [F#]spite of what I [G#]try
But I’ve got a [F#]pa-[G#]ast like a [Bbm]mask
And [F#]I sure took my [G#]time to under[C#]stand

When I was young, not long ago, I hid my feelings well
Sometimes I let my heartaches show but I could never tell
And now I find I’ve been blind, insensitive and vain
Cause someone told me long ago “ignore a woman’s pain”
If I could change the fool I’ve been, I know just what’d do
I’d give her everything I can and make all her dreams come true

Chorus #2:
But I’ve got a past like a mask
And I can see it in her eyes, the lonely nights, the endless lies
The countless time I made her cry when she was by my side
And I’ve got a past like a mask
And I sure took my time to understand

Chorus #1
