Love For A Child
We Sing, We Dance, We Steal Things
Transcribed by Ross M. Levy

Play an A chord for the intro

           A
There's a picture on my kitchen wall
            C#m
Looks like Jesus and his friends involved
          F#                           Bm
There's a party getting started in the yard
          Bm              Dm            A        C#m       F#m
There's a couple getting steamy in the car parked in the drive
   Bm                               Esus4   E
Was I too young to see this with my eyes?

        A
By the pool last night, apparently
     C#m
The chemicals weren't mixed properly
    F#                                  Bm
You hit your head and then forgot your name
              Bm             Dm              A     C#m    F#m
And then you woke up at the bottom by the drain
              Bm                      Esus4    E
And now your altitude and memory's a shame


A            Bm7        C#m7           Bm7
 What about taking this empty cup and filling it up
         A                      Bm7       
With a little bit more of some innocence
   C#m7                    Bm7                            A
I haven't had enough, it's probably because when you're young
       C#7        D       Dm7
It's okay to be easily ignored
Dm7                       (D E F-walk-up notes on the A string)
I like to believe it was all about
             A 
love for a child

                               C#m
And when the house was left in shambles
                    F#                          Bm
Who was there to handle all the broken bits of glass
       Bm             Dm              A         C#m        F#m
Was it mom who put my dad out on his ass or the other way around
         Bm                              Esus4   E
Well I'm far too old to care about that now


A            Bm7        C#m7           Bm7
 What about taking this empty cup and filling it up
         A                      Bm7       
With a little bit more of innocence
   C#m7                    Bm7                            A
I haven't had enough, it's probably because when you're young
       C#7        D       Dm7
It's okay to be easily ignored
Dm7                       (D E F-walk-up notes on the A string)
I'd like to believe it was all about 
             A
love for a child


G              Bm                A                C#m
   It's kinda nice to work the floor since the divorce
             G                Bm                          A
I've been enjoying both my Christmases and my birthday cakes
     G                Bm             A              C#m
And taking drugs and making love at far too young an age
          G
and they never check to see my grades
        E                       E/G#      A
What a fool I'd be to start complaining now


A            Bm7        C#m7           Bm7
 What about taking this empty cup and filling it up
         A                      Bm7       
With a little bit more of innocence
   C#m7                    Bm7                            A
I haven't had enough, it's probably because when you're young
       C#7        D       Dm7
It's okay to be easily ignored
Dm7                       (D E F-walk-up notes on the A string)
I'd love to believe it's all about 
             A
love for a child
       (D E F-walk-up notes on the A string)   A
It was all about love...

Should be cappo 1 - or shift every chord up one fret, to match the album version.
Otherwise perfect!

Amazing tab, amazing song, thanks a LOT!

(Note: Capo 1 is needed as ste150 said previously.)
