                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,
    C 
and rolled beneath a deep blue sky
G
Didn't have a care in the world,
     C               D  
with mommy and daddy standing by
    G
But happily ever after fails,
               C
and we've been poisoned by these fairy tales
    G
The lawyers dwell on small details,
      Em    C      D 
since daddy had to fly

        Em       Bm          Am 
Ah, but I know a place where we can go,
Em           Cmaj7        D
that's still untouched by man
Em            Bm        Am
We'll sit and watch the clouds go by,
        Em         Cmaj7       D                   
and the tall grass wave in the wind
        G        D         C
You can lay your head back on the ground,
    Em       Bm        Am  
and let your hair fall all around me
G     D       C 
Offer up your best defense,
    Em          Bm  Am   Cmaj7       D
but this is the end,     this is the end
       G             
of the innocence

G D C G D G C G D 

G
Oh beautiful for spacious skies,
    C
but now those skies are threatening
        G
They're beating plowshares into swords,
         C                      D
for this tired old man that we elected king
G
Armchair warriors often fail,
               C
and we've been poisoned by these fairytales
    G
The lawyers clean up all details,
      Em    C      D
since daddy had to lie

        Em       Bm          Am 
Ah, but I know a place where we can go,
Em           Cmaj7        D
that's still untouched by man
Em            Bm        Am
We'll sit and watch the clouds go by,
        Em         Cmaj7       D                   
and the tall grass wave in the wind
        G        D         C
You can lay your head back on the ground,
    Em       Bm        Am  
and let your hair fall all around me
G     D       C 
Offer up your best defense,
    Em          Bm  Am   Cmaj7       D
but this is the end,     this is the end
       G             
of the innocence

G
Who knows how long this will last,
   C
or how we've come so far so fast
    G
But somewhere back there in the dust,
     C                  D
that same small town in each of us
G
I need to remember this, 
   C
so baby give me just one kiss
    G
And let me take a long last look,
  Em      C       D
before we say goodbye

     G        D         C
Just lay your head back on the ground,
    Em       Bm        Am  
and let your hair fall all around me
G     D       C 
Offer up your best defense,
    Em          Bm  Am   Cmaj7       D
but this is the end,     this is the end,
       G             
of the innocence

G D C G D G C G D 5x
