Back in my Day  The Handsome Family

[Em] [C] [G] [D]  
[VERSE 1] 
We had m[C]aps that unfolded
b[Cm]ack in my day
You could dr[G]ink from the river
We had g[Em]ods made of clay
There were m[C]ile-high glaciers,
no l[Cm]ocks on the doors
The st[G]ars burned brighter
We never c[D]ounted past four
And the b[C]irds were always watching
There were m[Cm]onsters in the sea
We wore w[G]atches on our wrists
There were gh[D]osts in the trees
[Em]Way back in the days,
you're too y[C]oung to have seen,
When the n[G]ights were darker,
l[D]onger and deep
[Am] [Em] [G] [D]  
[VERSE 2] 
There w[C]as no time or space
when [Cm]I was growing up
We had s[G]ummer all winter
The m[Em]oon rose with the sun
And m[C]usic sounded better
Re[Cm]corded on rings of ice
And as the s[G]ongs turned to water
we c[D]ouldn't help but cry
[Em]Way back in the good days,
the [C]ones you didn't see,
When e[G]verything was better,
d[D]arker and deep
[Am] [Em] [G] [D]  
[C] [Cm] [G] [D]  
[C] [Cm] [G]
