Fountain Of Sorrow  Jackson Browne



[Dm]Looking through some [C]photographs I [Bb]found inside a [F]drawer
I was [Dm]taken by a [C]photograph of [Bb]you      [F]
There were [Dm]one or two I [C]know that you would have [Bb]liked a little [F]more
But they [Dm]didn't show your [C]spirit quite as [Bb]true      [F]
You were [Am]turning 'round to see who was be[F]hind you
And I [Am]took your childish laughter by [C]surprise   [C/Bb]
And at the [Bb/F]moment that my camera happened to [Dm]find you
There was [Gm]just a trace of [Bb]sorrow in your [F]eyes
Now the [Dm]things that I re[C]member seem so [Bb]distant and so [F]small
Though it [Dm]hasn't really [C]been that long a [Bb]time           [F]
What [Dm]I was seeing [C]wasn't what was [Bb]happening at all  [F]
Although [Dm]for a while, our [C]path did seem to [Bb]climb          [F]
But when [Am]you see through love's illusions[F], there lies the danger
And yo[Am]ur perfect lover just looks lik[C]e a perfect[C/Bb] fool
So you go r[Bb/F]unning off in search of a perfect [Dm]stranger
While the [Gm]loneliness seems[Bb] to spring from your life
Like a [F]fountain[C/E] from a [Dm]pool  [C/E]     [Dm]    [C]
[Bb]Fountain of [F/C]sorrow, [A/C#]fountain of [Dm]light []  [C]  []
[Bb]You've known that [F/C]hollow sound [A/C#]of your own steps in [Dm]fligh[]t [C]  []
[Bb]You've had to [F/C]hide sometimes, but [A/C#]now you're all [Dm]right
[F]And it's good to see your smiling face tonight

Now for [Dm]you and me it [C]may not be that [Bb]hard to reach our [F]dreams
But that [Dm]magic feeling [C]never seems to [Bb]last           [F]
And while the [Dm]future's there for [C]anyone to change[Bb], still you know it's
[F]seems
It would be [Dm]easier some[C]times to change the [Bb]past    [F]
I'm just [Am]one or two years and a couple of changes beh[F]ind you
In my [Am]lessons at love's pain and heartache [C]school  [C/Bb]
Where if you [Bb/F]feel too free and you need something to [Dm]remind you
There's this [Gm]loneliness springing [Bb]up from your life
Like a [F]fountain[C/E] from a [Dm]pool  [C/E]     [Dm]    [C]
[Bb]Fountain of [F/C]sorrow, [A/C#]fountain of [Dm]light []  [C]  []
[Bb]You've known that [F/C]hollow sound [A/C#]of your own steps in [Dm]fligh[]t [C]  []
[Bb]You've had to [F/C]hide sometimes but [A/C#]now you're all [Dm]right
[F]And it's good to see your smiling face tonight

[Bb]Fountain of [F/C]sorrow, [A/C#]fountain of [Dm]light []  [C]  []
[Bb]You've known that [F/C]hollow sound [A/C#]of your own steps in [Dm]fligh[]t [C]  []
[Bb]You've had to [F/C]struggle, [A/C#]you've had to [Dm]fight[]  [C]  []
[Bb]To keep unders[F/C]tanding [A/C#]and compassion in [Dm]sight[]  [C]  []
[Bb]You could be l[F/C]aughing at me, [A/C#]you've got the [Dm]right[]  [C]  []
[Bb]But you go on [F/C]smiling [A/C#]so clear and so [Dm]brigh[]t [C]  []
