Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Tuning is EBEAC#F# - this may look compliicated, but essentially it's a Capo on the 2nd fret, but leaving
the bottom E string open. You need a certain type of Capo to do this (like a Schubb or a G7), but it's a great
tuning to learn and works well for many songs containing D shapes at the second fret.
Em7 (020230)

[Intro]
Dsus2     Asus4    Em7    Dsus2

[Verse 1]
     Asus4
Aunt Clara kept her Bible right next to the phone
            G                         Dsus2   
In case she needed a quote, while she talked to someone
      Asus4
In my memory she smiles while the blessing is said
    G                       Dsus2
And visions of freeze tag dance in my head
              Asus4
She says I'll grow up big if I eat all my roast
     G                                                       Dsus2
I'll still believe in heaven but I won't believe in ghosts anymore
         Asus4                          G                       Dsus2
I'll put away childish things, I'll put away childish things

[Verse 2]
    Asus4
Every other weekend, age of thirteen
        G                   Dsus2
With my fishin pole and my Field and Stream
   Asus4           
Ridin back home on the Trailways bus
  G                                  Dsus2
I looked out the window til I saw too much
      Asus4
And I called my parents by their own first name
  G                                                   Dsus2
I played in the alley, but I didn't play the game anymore
      Asus4                       G                        Dsus2
I put away childish things, I put away childish things

[Chorus]
Bm              G
The wolves howl all night long
D                   A
They won't stop and they won't go home
Bm         G           D   A
Beneath my window they run
Bm                 G
And probably it'll be alright
D             A
If I keep it locked up tight and
Em7      G             Dsus2
Wait til daylight comes

[Solo]
Bm   G   D   A
Bm   G   D   A
Bm   G   D   A
Em7  G   Dsus2

[Verse 3]
    Asus4
Now my boy goes like a house on fire
      G                        Dsus2
He'll never burn out and he'll never retire
      Asus4 
And I remember when I used to think like that
     G                   Dsus2
When I was young and the world was flat
        Asus4 
But I'm 40 some years old now and man I don't care
G                        Dsus2
All I want now is just a comfortable chair
       Asus4
And to sell all my stock and live on the coast
   G                                            Dsus2
I dont believe in heaven but I still believe in ghosts
         Asus4                          G
I've put away childish things, I've put away childish things,
         Asus4                          G                      Dsus2
I've put away childish things, I've put away childish things

[Chorus]
Bm              G
The wolves howl all night long
D                   A
They won't stop and they won't go home
Bm         G           D   A
Beneath my window they run
Bm                 G
And probably it'll be alright
D             A
If I keep it locked up tight and
Em7      G             Dsus2
Wait til daylight comes
Em7           G        Dsus2
If I wait til daylight comes

[Outro]
Em7 G Dsus2 
Em7 G Dsus2
