Nothing but a child
Steve Earle

Verse 1:
G                 Cmaj7           D/f#
Once upon a time  In a far off land
C              D/f#  C        D/f#                   G
Wise men saw a sign  And set out 'cross the sand
G                       Cmaj7                 D/f#
Songs of praise to sing They travelled day and night
C                 D/f#            C           D/f#      G 
Precious gifts to bring           Guided by the light.

Verse 2:
G                            Cmaj7           D/f#
They chased a brand new star Ever towards the west
C              D/f#       C        D/f#              G
Across the mountains far  But when it came to rest
G                               Cmaj7                    D/f#
They scarce believed their eyes   They'd come so many miles
C                 D/f#            C           D/f#      G 
The miracle they prized           Was nothing but a child

Chorus:
C       G     C                        G          G/F#    Em7
Nothing but a child               Could wash those tears away
   C             D/f#                  C      D/f#        G   
Or guide a weary world            Into the light of day
C       G     C                        G          G/F#    Em7
Nothing but a child               Could help erase those miles
   C             D/f#                       C       D/f#     G   
So once again we all              Can be children for a while.

G  G  Cmaj7 D/f# G

Verse 3:
G                 Cmaj7                       D/f#
Now all around the world       In every little town
C                   D/f#  C        D/f#      G
Every day is heard      A precious little sound
G                            Cmaj7                D/f#
And every mother kind          And every father, proud
C                 D/f#            C           D/f#      G 
Looks down in awe to find     Another chance allowed

Chorus:
C       G     C                        G          G/F#    Em7
Nothing but a child               Could wash those tears away
   C             D/f#                  C      D/f#        G   
Or guide a weary world            Into the light of day
C       G     C                        G          G/F#    Em7
Nothing but a child               Could help erase those miles
   C             D/f#                       C       D/f#     G   
So once again we all              Can be children for a while.
