I Thought I Was A Child

Jackson Browne

 FDmBb
 It's such a clever innocence with which you do your sorcery
 FAm7BbC
As if somehow the years just bow and let that young girl go free
 BbCFBbF
thought I was a child until you turned and smiled
 BbAmGmCA7/C#
thought I knew where I was going until I heard your laughter flowing
 DmBbFBbF
And came upon the wisdom in your eyes        
 CC/BbAm7Gm7(11C
Surprise!                              

 FBb
 I've spent my whole life running 'round
 FBb
 Chasing songs from town to town
 FAmBbC
 Thinking I'd be free so long as I never let love slow me down
 BbCFBbF
So lonely and so wild until you turned and smiled
 BbAm7
By now I should have long been gone
 GmCA7/C#
But here I am still looking on 
 DmBbF
As if I didn't know which way to run

 FDmBb
 It's such a clever innocence with which you show myself to me
 FAm7BbC
 As if you know how it feels to never be who you wanted to be
 BbCFBbF
thought I was a child until you turned and smiled
 BbAmGmCA7/C#
thought that I was free but I'm just one more prisoner of time
 DmBbF
Alone within the boundaries of my mind

|Bb |F/A |Gm |C |

 BbCDm7
 I thought I was a child
