Shades Of Grey Chords

   
lyrics from reprint of 1966 sheet music

C                       F                 G7sus        G7
     When the world and I were young just yesterday.

C                    F             G                G7
     Life was such a simple game a child could play.

F  G7  C
It was easy then to tell

G
Right from wrong

Am
Easy then to tell

Em
Weak from strong,

F                      C               Am
     When a man should stand and fight

Dm      Em  F6     G
Or just go along.


      F               C         Am
But today there is no day or night

  Dm        G7    C
Today there is no dark or light

  F         G     Am    G  F
Today there is no black or white

C    F            G7sus     G7
Only shades of gray.


C               F                G7sus            G7
     I remember when the answers seemed so clear,

C                 F                   G             G7
     We had never lived with doubt or tasted fear
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/m/monkees/shades_of_grey_crd.html ]
F  G7  C
It was easy then to tell

G
Truth from lies

Am
     Selling out

Em
From compromise

F                    C         Am
     Who to love and who to hate

    Dm      Em       F6
The foolish from the wise.



      F               C         Am
But today there is no day or night

  Dm        G7    C
Today there is no dark or light

  F         G     Am    G  F
Today there is no black or white

C    F            G7sus     G7
Only shades of gray.



       C
It was easy then to know 

G
What was fair

Am
     When to keep 

    Em
And when to share

F                   C             Am
     How much to protect your heart

Dm      Em      F6
And how much to care.



      F               C         Am
But today there is no day or night

  Dm        G7    C
Today there is no dark or light

  F         G     Am    G  F
Today there is no black or white

C    F            G7sus     G7
Only shades of gray.
