My name is Andy Barclay, email address FSUAndy@aol.com, and the following is 
a transcription I came up with for this song.  I hope I included all the 
information you need.

I Saw My Youth Today by Richard Shindell

Richard Shindell    vocals/ acoustic guitar
Larry Campbell      guitar/mandolin	
Radoslav Lorkovic  keyboards

Capo 2nd fret  Standard tuning  The pick pattern is pretty consistent 
throughout the song; use one that's familiar or strum

Intro:  Em C G D Em C G D

Em                      C  
I saw my youth today
G                                D
He passed me on the street
Em                    C 
As he walked by I stood frozen
G                       D
On my dreaming feet
Em                   C
He had a kinder face
G                                D
The kind I've learned to hide
Em                          C
Behind these cold unyielding stones
G                           D
That used to be my eyes

G              F#/D        C
A moment please my boy
G             F#/D      C
Don't you know my name?
G                        D
Do you remember when
                  Em     F#/D      C  
We used to play a hundred games?
G               F#/D    C
And is your mother well?
G            F#/D     C
Kiss her once for me
G                                    D
And if she should ask you why
                       Em 
Why you could say 
F#/D         C          D   Em C G D (four times)
Just for no reason

Em                        C
Remember that old troll
 G                           D
Who lived inside the tree?
Em                C
He was never dangerous
G                            D
That's just the way it seemed
Em                                 C    
The day you climbed that tree
G                            D
And ran to show me how
Em                       C     
The troll was never seen again
G                              D
So where could he be now?

G              F#/D          C
A moment please, my boy
G            F#/D        C
Don't you know this face
G                               D
And do you remember when
              Em      F#/D    C
I used to let you win the races?
G                F#/D  C      
Please don't run away
G           F#/D      C        
I did not mean to scare you
G                     D      
I'm the one who told you
                  Em   F#/D    C            D 
You should never talk to strangers

G                F#/D    C
And is your mother well?
G            F#/D    C
Kiss her once for me
G                                     D
And if she should ask you why
                        Em
Why you could say 
F#/D          C         D
Just for no reason

Em                    C    
I saw my youth today
G                              D
He passed me in the street
Em                    C
As he walked by I stood frozen
G                       D
On my dreaming feet
