From: Bo Frazer firstname.lastname@example.org Performer: Katthy Mattea Album: Good News Words and music: Steve Earle Nothing But A Child (If you know how to detune the low E on the guitar to a D, hit that as the bass note for all chords in first verse.) Verse 1: D Once upon a time G A In a far off land G A Wise men saw a sign G A And set out 'cross the sand D Songs of praise to sing G A They travelled day and night G A Precious gifts to bring G A D They were guided by the 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 Chorus: G D G6 Nothing but a child D F#m Bm Could wash those tears away G A Or guide a weary world G A D Into the light of day G D G6 Nothing but a child D F#m Bm Could help erase those miles G A So once again we all G A D Can be children for a 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 find Another chance allowed [chorus] tag: G A Nothing but a little baby G A Nothing but a little baby G A D Nothing but a childHome
