nothing but a child  Kathy Mattea

[D]Once upon a time                  [G]In a far off [A]land
[G]Wise men saw a [A]sign               And [G]set out '[A]cross the sand
[D]Songs of praise to sing           They [G]travelled day and [A]night
[G]Precious gifts to [A]bring           They were [G]guided [A]by the [D]light.
Verse 2:
They chased a brand new star Ever towards the west
Across the mountains far But when it came to rest
They scarce believed their eyes They'd come so many miles
The miracle they prized Was nothing but a child
[G]Nothing [D]but a [G6]child               Could [D]wash those [F#m]tears a[Bm]way
Or [G]guide a weary [A]world            In[G]to the [A]light of [D]day
[G]Nothing [D]but a [G6]child               Could [D]help e[F#m]rase those [Bm]miles
So [G]once again we [A]all              Can be [G]children [A]for a [D]while.
Solo (= same the tag): G A G A G A D
Verse 3:
Now all around the world In every little town
Every day is heard A precious little sound
And every mother kind And every father, proud
Looks down in awe to fiund Another chance allowed
[G]Nothing but a [A]little baby
[G]Nothing but a [A]little baby
[G]Nothing [A]but a [D]child
