The Barricades of Heaven  Jackson Browne



[Em] Running [C]down along the [G]towns along the [D]shore
[Em] When I was [C]sixteen and on my [G]own [D]
[Em] No I couldn't [C]tell you what the [G]hell those breaks were [D]for
[Em] I was just [C]trying to hear my [G]song [D]
Em, C, G, D (TWICE)
[Em] Jimmy found his [C]own sweet sound when he [G]won that free [D]guitar
[Em] And we'd all [C]get in the van and p[G]lay [D]
[Em] Life became the [C]Paradox, the [G]Bell, the Rouge et [D]noir
[Em] And the stretch of [C]road running to [G]L.A. [D]
BRIDGE :[Em] Pages turnin[C]g
[G] Pages we were [D]years from learning
[Em] Straight into the [C]night our hearts were [G]flung [D]
(PLAY REGULAR "C" and "D" for chorus)
CHORUS : Better [C]bring your own re[G]demtion [D]when you com[C]e [D]
To the [C]barricades of hea[G]ven w[D]here I'm f[C]rom
Em, C, G, D (Twice)
[Em] Al[C]l the world was [G]shining from those [D]hills
[Em] With the stars a[C]bove and the lights b[G]elow [D]
[Em] Among those th[C]ere to test their fo[G]rtune and their [D]will
[Em] I lost [C]track of the score long [G]ago [D]
[Em] Childhood[F] comes for [C/E]me at night
[Em] The voices [F]of my fr[C/E]iends
[Em] Your face b[F]athing [C/E]me in light
[Em] I hope that [F]never e[C/E]nds
Em, C, G, D (TWICE)
[Em] Pages tu[C]rning
[G]Pages torn and pa[D]ges burning
[Em] Faded pages o[C]pen in the s[G]un [D]
Chorus (TWICE)
Em, C, G, D (FADE)
