Capo 7th Fret

Em7                              Cadd9
Boys, boys, boys, boys, little boys
Em7                              Cadd9
Bows and arrows for their toys
      Am      Em7          D      Em7
With gentle voices and open hands
     Am         Em7           D         Em7
To show you treasures and secret plans
         Cadd9
Just to make a man

Boys, boys, boys, boys all settle down
They'll take some time to find somewhere then
Find someone
They'll stop jumping to take a slow dance
Tell you now they understand
What makes a man

D      Cadd9                     G
Boys break the things they love the most
D              Cadd9               G
Spend nights crying about it on their own
                Cadd9      G              D            Em7
They're so strong and young and weak and old
               Am                    D       Em7
But they'll walk beside you on the road
              Am                           D           Em7
And they'll take you with them when they go

Boys, boys, boys, boys grown boys
Breaking bones and hearts in broken voices
Taking love to bits again
Trying get it fixed, then failing
To be a man

Boys break the things they love the most
Spend nights crying about it on their own
They're so strong and young and weak and old
But they'll walk beside you on the road
And they'll take you with them when they go
