CAPO 1st Fret:

         Cadd11    C
When you have a child
    Cadd11                C   
You learn it's a serious business
          Am     D/A    Am     D/A
To have a little fun
         Gadd11         G
You give grace and get forgiveness
     Gadd11
Not seven times seven
    G                   Cadd11  C  Cadd11   C
But seven times seventy-one

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
                               Gadd11     G
It's your flesh and bone

    Em         Am
And year after year
         Em              Am
Pictures fill page after page
     Em           Am
They never really grow up
           Em          Am
Still your baby at any age
    Dm   
The first time you hold 'em
     C
It's like you see God's smile
       F         Gadd11   G
What a smile

         Cadd11    C
When you have a child

And then boy meets girl
And perfume and gasoline
Rain on your perfect world
Curfews are often broken
Thank you’ s aren't spoken

             Dm
He's got the keys to that old Dodge
          C
And she's wearing a corsage 
       F               Gadd11   G
And her mama's pearls

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

         Cadd11    C
When you have a child




    Am                         Bb (Dm)
You pray that phone call never comes
       C/E   F 
And if God forbid

              G
How would you live
             G#dim     Am
How could you go on
                       F
And on and on and on


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
