The End of the Innocence  Don Henley

The End of the Innocence chords
Don Henley
Capo I
G D C G D G C G D 2x
[G]I remember when the days were long,
and [C]rolled beneath a deep blue sky
[G]Didn't have a care in the world,
with [C]mommy and daddy [D]standing by
But [G]happily ever after fails,
and we've been [C]poisoned by these fairy tales
The [G]lawyers dwell on small details,
since [Em]daddy [C]had to [D]fly
Ah, but [Em]I know a [Bm]place where [Am]we can go,
[Em]that's still [Cmaj7]untouched by [D]man
[Em]We'll sit and [Bm]watch the [Am]clouds go by,
and the [Em]tall grass [Cmaj7]wave in the [D]wind
You can [G]lay your [D]head back [C]on the ground,
and [Em]let your [Bm]hair fall [Am]all around me
[G]Offer [D]up your [C]best defense,
but [Em]this is the [Bm]end,[Am] [Cmaj7]this is the [D]end
of the [G]innocence
[G] [D] [C] [G] [D] [G] [C] [G] [D]  
[G]Oh beautiful for spacious skies,
but [C]now those skies are threatening
They're [G]beating plowshares into swords,
for this [C]tired old man that we e[D]lected king
[G]Armchair warriors often fail,
and we've been [C]poisoned by these fairytales
The [G]lawyers clean up all details,
since [Em]daddy [C]had to [D]lie
Ah, but [Em]I know a [Bm]place where [Am]we can go,
[Em]that's still [Cmaj7]untouched by [D]man
[Em]We'll sit and [Bm]watch the [Am]clouds go by,
and the [Em]tall grass [Cmaj7]wave in the [D]wind
You can [G]lay your [D]head back [C]on the ground,
and [Em]let your [Bm]hair fall [Am]all around me
[G]Offer [D]up your [C]best defense,
but [Em]this is the [Bm]end,[Am] [Cmaj7]this is the [D]end
of the [G]innocence
[G]Who knows how long this will last,
or [C]how we've come so far so fast
But [G]somewhere back there in the dust,
that [C]same small town in [D]each of us
[G]I need to remember this,
so [C]baby give me just one kiss
And [G]let me take a long last look,
be[Em]fore we [C]say good[D]bye
Just [G]lay your [D]head back [C]on the ground,
and [Em]let your [Bm]hair fall [Am]all around me
[G]Offer [D]up your [C]best defense,
but [Em]this is the [Bm]end,[Am] [Cmaj7]this is the [D]end,
of the [G]innocence
G D C G D G C G D 5x
