My back pages  Bob Dylan



Cr[C]imson fl[Am]ames tied[Em] through my ears
Rollin' h[F]igh and mi[G]ghty tr[C]aps...
Po[C]unced with f[Am]ire on [Em]flaming roads
Using [F]i-deas as my [G]maps...
"We'll m[Am]eet on edges, [Em]soon said," I,
P[F]roud 'neath heated [G]brow...
Ah, but [C]I was [Am]so much o[Em]lder th[F]en
I'm y[C]oung-er[G] than that n[C]ow.
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 of musketeers
Foundationed deep, somehow,
Ah, but I was so much older then,
I'm younger than that now.
Girl's faces formed the forward path
>From phony jealousy,
To memorizing politics
Of ancient history.
Flung down by corpse evangelist
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.
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 by confusion boats
Mutiny from stern to bow
Ah, but I was so much older then,
I'm younger than that now.
Yes, my guards stood hard when abstract threats
Too noble 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.
Thanks
