LEARNING HOW TO LOVE YOU - John Hiatt
-------------------------------------

|E |  |  |  |A E |B7 |   |   |   |  x2

    E                    A    E    B7
I'm 34 years old now and I've come to you
A    E                     A E   B7
Baby I don't even know how I got through
         A
From the first kiss in the schoolyard
        D    A              B7
Til the last heart broke in two
A        E
I didn't know it would be so hard
A        E      B7
Learning how to love you

|A/E  |E    |A/E  |E    |C#m  |     |B F#m E|A  B  |  x2

There was a life that I was living in some cracked rear view
Where no future was given to a heart untrue
Still I thought that I was so strong
That my will could force me through
I didn't know it would be so long
Learning how to love you

Learning how to love you

F#                     E    A            E
 I might have never realised the courage in your kiss
A              D      A       B7
 And the sweet forgiveness in your eyes

A      E  etc
Babe I know you've walked a mile in someone else's shoes
Maybe you've left some faces smiling walking off your blues
And I don't pretend to know how you ever saw it through
Cause I only got to where I am now
Learning how to love you

Learning how to love you
Learning how to love you
Love you
