My Wild Child
By The Cowboy Junkies

This is from the One Soul Now album.  I love the song and hope that you enjoy the 
 Please send comments or suggestions to dsbatzmi@aol.com.  This is my first post, so I'm not 
how the format works.

Intro:

Am/Aadd9 repeated with an A bass strum.  (Aadd9 is just X02200)

-------Verse 1----------------------------------------------

Am                 C
Betrayed? It's the question
G         Am
That I am asking
F         G                     Am            (Aadd9/Am etc.)
Or just a lucky one deceived by too much love?

-------Verse 2----------------------------------------------

Am                C
Confused.  Is the issue.
G                Am
I'm in need of a rescue
F       G                    Am
Another lucky one stunned by too much love

Aadd9/Am
F
-------Chorus-----------------------------------------------

F       Am
My Wild child
G                     Am
She's my salvaged shipwreck.
        G               F
My wild child, She's my stone.
F       Am
My Wild child
         G            Am
She's my constant reminder.
        G               Am
My wild child, She's my Home.

Back to Am/Aadd9

-------Verse 3----------------------------------------------

Am           C
Lost, Is the place
G                   Am
Where I'm hammering stakes
F             G                    Am            (Aadd9/Am etc.)
Sign says "a lucky one deceived by too much love"

-------Verse 4----------------------------------------------

Am            C
Saved, is the state
G                   Am
That we're told was graced
F              G                   Am
He was just a lucky one stunned by too much love

Aadd9/Am
F
-------Chorus-----------------------------------------------

F       Am
My Wild child
         G            Am
She's my salvaged shipwreck.
        G               F
My wild child, She's my stone.
F       Am
My Wild child
G                     Am
She's my constant reminder.
        G               Am
My wild child, She's my home.

Back to Am/Aadd9

-------Verse 5----------------------------------------------

Am           C
Life, is the riddle
G                        Am
That we're caught in the middle
F           G                        Am
A couple of lucky ones tangled up in too much love

Aadd9/Am
F

-------Chorus------------------------------------------------

F       Am
My Wild child
         G            Am
She's my salvaged shipwreck.
        G               F
My wild child, She's my stone.
F       Am
My Wild child
G                     Am
She's my constant reminder.
        G               Am
My wild child, She's my home.

Back to Am/Aadd9

 I also wrote the lyrics as I hear them rather than the liner notes, since I think
that this is how it's sung.
