Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Grownup  Carly Simon

[D7]I sto[Gm]od in the doorway i[F]n my white nightgown
[Gm]Red roses on linen
[F]I stood three feet from the ground
The g[Ebmaj7]rownups laughed ins[A7]ide
Used wo[D]rds I didn't k[Dm]now
But s[Gm7]till I enjoyed the show [A7]

[Gm]They looked so lovely
[F]They looked so self-assured
And[Gm] I just like them
Would know it a[F]ll when I matured
And no l[Ebmaj7]onger be afr[A7]aid of the dar[D]kness or the b[Dm]ears
Or the cr[Gm7]acks in the ceiling upsta[A7]irs

Well, I've j[Gm]ust gotten older
[Am]I've just gotten taller
And the li[A7]ttle ones
Call me a g[Am7]rown[D]up
[Gm]Last night at a friend's house
A li[F]ttle girl was there
She st[Gm]ood in the doorway pla[F]ying with her hair
[Ebmaj7]She looked up at me [A7]as if I[D] could do no w[Dm]rong
As I st[Gm7]ood to sing my s[A7]ong
[Gm]I sang it with a shiver
In my th[F]roat and in my knees
[Gm]Feeling just as small
As a thi[F]stle in a breeze
But the c[Ebmaj7]hild's imaginat[A7]ion
[D]Carried me al[Dm]ong
And s[Gm7]aw me through my s[A7]ong
See, I've j[Gm]ust gotten older
[Am]I've just gotten taller
And the li[A7]ttle ones
Call me a g[Am7]rown[D]up  [A]  [D7]   [Gm]
