ONCE WHEN I WAS LITTLE – James Morrison
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Kengus

This is pretty straightforward as I see it: no capo, no overly difficult
chords etc. There might be a couple of D7s instead of plain D, but D works
just as well. Also, I'm not sure Morrison plays G7 every time. Have fun.

Standard tuning

INTRO
Em  C  G  D/F#     NB! play C like this: 332010, not x32010
Em  C  G  D/F#

VERSE1
Em                        C              G      D/F#
  I was the one who would always jump in first
Em                C               G     D/F#
   I didn't think twice to look behind
Em                 C                  G                   D/F#
   Got such a good feeling, just from playing in the dirt
Em        C     G       D/F#
Once when I was little

VERSE2
Em                  C                  G     D/F#
   We could build a rocket, fly to the moon
Em                C             G              D/F#
   Leave Tuesday morning, and be back for noon
Em               C         G                         D/F#
   There wasn't nothing, nothing that we couldn't do
    Em        C     G       D/F# Em        C     G
Oh, once when I was little, mmm, once when I was little

CHORUS
                 C               D           Em             G7
And yeah I could dream more then,  I could believe more then
         C           Bm       D
That the world could only get better
           C              D            Em            G7
I could be free more then,  I could pretend more then
          C          Bm           D
That this life could only show me good times
                C
Once when I was little

INTERLUDE
Em  C  G  D/F#
Em  C  G  D/F#

VERSE3
Em                        C             G   D/F#
   There was a time when I trusted everyone
Em               C                    Bm
   There was no place that I wouldn’t go
C                     D                 Em        F7
 Spend all day on the hillside next to the barley mow
    Em        C     G        D/F# Em        C     G
Oh, once when I was little, yeah  once when I was little

CHORUS
             C               D          Em             G7
Yeah I could dream more then,  and I believed more then
         C           Bm       D7
That the world would only get better
           C              D                Em            G7
I could be free more then,  and I could pretend more then
          C          Bm           D
That this life could only show me good times
                Am...
Once when I was little

BRIDGE
...                   D/F#
    I used to feel so strong
               F7                     E7                      
Even when they tell me, tell me I was wrong
                       Am
That I can't live in a magic world
                              D
Cause it's time for me to grow up
                         G
And I got to be like the rest of them
       F7                    E7
When I know things have been lost, oh

CHORUS
           C              D               Em             G7
I could pretend more then,  and I could believe more then
         C               Bm       D
That the world, it would only get better
                C                      D
Whoa, I could believe more then, yes I could
               Em           G7
And I could pretend more then
          C              Bm           D
That this life, it could only show me good times
                C         Em   C   G  D/F#
Once when I was little

OUTRO
Em                   C                     G     D/F#
   So here comes the next one, the next in line
Em                     C                 G       D/F#
  Stay as young as you can, for the longest time
Em                       C          G                          D/F#
   Cause those days flew by like a breeze just passing through
Em        C     G
Once when I was little.
