FOUNTAIN OF SORROW  -  Jackson Browne 
(Album: Late for the sky)


Intro
|Dm      |Bb      |Bb      |F       |
|Dm      |C       |Bb      |F       | 


Dm                   C             Bb             F
Looking through some photographs I found inside a drawer
      Dm         C             Bb       F
I was taken by a photograph of you
           Dm           C                        Bb             F
There were one or two I know that you would have liked a little more
         Dm               C               Bb        F
But they didn't show your spirit quite as true

         Am                              F
You were turning 'round to see who was behind you
      Am                             C          C/Bb
And I took your childish laughter by surprise
           Bb/F                              Dm
And at the moment that my camera happened to find you
          Gm              Bb             F
There was just a trace of sorrow in your eyes

        Dm              C              Bb             F
Now the things that I remember seem so distant and so small
          Dm            C                Bb             F
Though it hasn't really been that long a time
     Dm           C               Bb                F
What I was seeing wasn't what was happening at all
         Dm               C                Bb             F
Although for a while, our path did seem to climb

         Am                                               F
But when you see through love's illusions, there lies the danger
      Am                                         C       C/Bb
And your perfect lover just looks like a perfect fool
           Bb/F                              Dm
So you go running off in search of a perfect stranger
          Gm                  Bb             
While the loneliness seems to spring from your life
       F       C/E     Dm    C/E  Dm  C
Like a fountain from a pool

Bb          F/C     A/C#        Dm    ( C )
Fountain of sorrow, fountain of light
Bb                F/C          A/C#                 Dm   ( C )
You've known that hollow sound of your own steps in flight
Bb            F/C                 A/C#           Dm   
You've had to hide sometimes, but now you're all right
         F/C              Bb/C                                        
And it's good to see your smiling face tonight

|Bb  F/A  Bb/G  |F   Bb/G   F/A  |Bb  F/A  Bb/G  |F       |

Solo:
|Dm      |Bb      |Bb      |F       |
|Dm      |C       |Bb      |F       | 
|Dm      |C       |Bb      |F       | 
|Dm      |C       |Bb      |F       | 


        Dm            C               Bb                F
Now for you and me it may not be that hard to reach our dreams
         Dm            C              Bb             F
But that magic feeling never seems to last
              Dm                 C               Bb            
And while the future's there for anyone to change, still you know it's 
F
seems
            Dm         C                   Bb      F
It would be easier sometimes to change the past


         Am                                          F
I'm just one or two years and a couple of changes behind you
      Am                                   C       C/Bb
In my lessons at love's pain and heartache school
             Bb/F                                      Dm
Where if you feel too free and you need something to remind you
             Gm                   Bb             
There's this loneliness springing up from your life
       F       C/E     Dm    C/E  Dm  C
Like a fountain from a pool

Bb          F/C     A/C#        Dm    ( C )
Fountain of sorrow, fountain of light
Bb                F/C          A/C#                 Dm   ( C )
You've known that hollow sound of your own steps in flight
Bb            F/C                A/C#           Dm   
You've had to hide sometimes but now you're all right
         F/C              Bb/C
And it's good to see your smiling face tonight

|Bb  F/A  Bb/G  |F   Bb/G   F/A  |Bb  F/A  Bb/G  |F       |

Piano interlude:
|Dm       |Dm/C     |Bb       |F        |
|F/Eb     |F/Eb     |Dm       |Dm       |
|F/Eb     |F/Eb     |Dm       |Dm       |
|F/C      |F/C      |C        |C        |

Bb          F/C     A/C#        Dm    ( C )
Fountain of sorrow, fountain of light
Bb                F/C          A/C#                 Dm   ( C )
You've known that hollow sound of your own steps in flight
Bb            F/C       A/C#          Dm   ( C )   
You've had to struggle, you've had to fight
Bb            F/C     A/C#              Dm   ( C ) 
To keep understanding and compassion in sight
Bb            F/C            A/C#           Dm   ( C ) 
You could be laughing at me, you've got the right
Bb            F/C     A/C#            Dm   ( C )
But you go on smiling so clear and so bright

|Bb      |F/C     |A/C#     |Dm    (C)|  rep & fade
