When You Have a Child  Reba McEntire

CAPO 1st Fret:
When you [Cadd11]have a chi[C]ld
You [Cadd11]learn it's a serious b[C]usiness
To have a [Am]little [D/A]fun[Am] [D/A]
You give [Gadd11]grace and get f[G]orgiveness
Not s[Gadd11]even times seven
But [G]seven times seventy-[Cadd11]one[C] [Cadd11] [C]
And when you have a child
Those four walls you call a house
Take on a life of it's own
When you bring 'em home
You will cry and you will laugh
When they hurt it cuts you in half
It's your flesh and bone[Gadd11] [G]
And [Em]year after [Am]year
Pictures [Em]fill page after [Am]page
They [Em]never really [Am]grow up
Still your [Em]baby at any [Am]age
The [Dm]first time you hold 'em
It's [C]like you see God's smile
What a [F]smile[Gadd11] [G]
When you [Cadd11]have a chi[C]ld
And then boy meets girl
And perfume and gasoline
Rain on your perfect world
Curfews are often broken
Thank youâ?? s aren't spoken
He's got the [Dm]keys to that old Dodge
And she's [C]wearing a corsage
And her[F] mama's pearls[Gadd11] [G]
And year after year
Pictures fill page after page
They never really grow up
Still your baby at any age
And the first time you hold 'em
It's like you feel God's smile
What a smile
When you [Cadd11]have a chi[C]ld
You [Am]pray that phone call never [Bb]com[(Dm)]es
And if [C/E]God fo[F]rbid
How would you [G]live
How could you[G#dim] go on[Am]
And on and on and on[F]
And year after year
Close the chapter and turn the page
Blue ribbons and losing seasons
Flipping tassles on the stage
Oh but you don't need a photograph
You've got at least a million
Pictures of that smile
When you close your eyes
When you love a child
Ohh when you love a child
