A Child (In Everyone's Heart)  Phil Keaggy

Released: August 1980
(9.11.2012) Fixed some bad formatting juju.

[Em]Just a little boy in the [Am]town, [G]town, [D/F#]town
Dm7 F G C B(with lick 1)
Just a little boy with a frown, frown, frown.
[Em]In the afternoons he goes [Am]down, [G]down, [D/F#]down
[Dm7]To the lonely room near the [F]lost [G]and [C]found [Em]de-[A]partment.
[Dm7] [Dm7/G]  
There's a [C]little boy in [C/B]every man's [Am]heart
Crying [Cdim7]out, [D#dim7] trying [G]out.[Am7] [G/B]
As he [C]rushes in to [C/B]hear the band [Am]start,
So [Cdim7]alone,[D#dim7] in the [G]crowd, in the [F]crowd.
C B(with lick 1)
[Em]Just a little girl on her [Am]dad[G]dy's [D/F#]knee,
Dm7 F G C B(with lick 1)
Just remember when she was one, two, three.
[Em]In a little while she'll want [Am]to [G]be [D/F#]free,
[Dm7]And your little girl will be [F]se[G]ven[C]teen [Em]to-[A]morrow.
[Dm7] [Dm7/G]  
There's a [C]little girl in [C/B]every daddy's [Am]heart,
Dreaming [Cdim7]eyes, [D#dim7] scheming [G]eyes.[Am7] [G/B]
When she [C]sings for you re[C/B]member your [Am]part,
Listen [Cdim7]up, [D#dim7] when she [G]cries, when she [F]sighs.
C B(with lick 1)
[Em]Dm7 [Am]F G[G] C[D/F#] B(with lick 1)
[Em] [Am] [G] [D/F#]  
[Dm7] [F] [G] [C] [Em] [A]  
[Dm7] [Dm7/G]  
There's a [C]little child in [C/B]everyone's [Am]heart,
Needing [Cdim7]love, [D#dim7] needing [G]love.[Am7] [G/B]
There's a [C]little child in [C/B]everyone's [Am]heart,
Needing [Cdim7]love, [D#dim7] needing [G]love.[Am7] [G/B]
(lick 1)
after playing the B chord, play 2 single notes, F#, F, on E string to transition to the
Em chord. Just the E string is tabbed here: E:--2-1--|
D/F# 3xx232
Dm7/G 3xx211
C/B x22010
Cdim7 xx1212
D#dim7 xx4545
G/B x20003
A quick music factoid - going from Cdim7 to D#dim7, as tabbed here, the chords are
actually interchangeable. In other words, Cdim7 is also D#dim7, and vice versa. And both are
also F#dim7, and Adim7. By notating the song as 2 different chords, going from Cdim7 to
D#dim7, is just a way to show a change. I could have just as well as left it only as Cdim7
or D#dim7.
