                Goin’ Back (Goffin – King)

Although I love Dusty’s and the Byrds’ versions, this is my take on Carole’s 
version from the Writer Album (1969). The La La Las were done with James Taylor. 

Verse 1
  G                           Dm7/G                              G
I think I'm goin' back to the things I learned so well in my youth

  G                              Dm7/G                                   G
I think I'm returning to those days when I was young enough to know the truth

          Em7                  Bm7
Now there are no games to only pass the time
         Em7                     G
No more electric trains, no more trees to climb
         Am7                    Am7/D      G
But thinking young and growing older is no sin
    Am7              Am7/D          G
And I can play the game of life to win

Verse 2
I can recall a time when I wasn't ashamed to reach out to a friend
Now I think I've got a lot more than just my toys to lend
Now there's more to do than watch my sailboat glide
But every day can be a magic carpet ride
A little bit of courage is all we lack
So catch me if you can, I'm goin' back

G                 Dm7/G          
La la la la la la la la la la la

G                 Dm7/G          
La la la la la la la la la

            Em7                      Bm7
Now there's more to do than watch my sailboat glide
          Em7                G
But every day can be a magic carpet ride
  Am7             Am7/D            G
A little bit of courage is all we lack
   Am7             Am7/D            G
So catch me if you can, I'm goin' back

And so on
