LEARNING HOW TO LOVE YOU - John Hiatt
-------------------------------------

|E |  |  |  |A E |B7 |   |   |   |  x2

    E                    A    E    B7
I'm 34 years old now and I've come to you
A    E                     A E   B7
Baby I don't even know how I got through
         A
From the first kiss in the schoolyard
        D    A              B7
Til the last heart broke in two
A        E
I didn't know it would be so hard
A        E      B7
Learning how to love you

|A/E  |E    |A/E  |E    |C#m  |     |B F#m E|A  B  |  x2

There was a life that I was living in some cracked rear view
Where no future was given to a heart untrue
Still I thought that I was so strong
That my will could force me through
I didn't know it would be so long
Learning how to love you

Learning how to love you

F#                     E    A            E
 I might have never realised the courage in your kiss
A              D      A       B7
 And the sweet forgiveness in your eyes

A      E  etc
Babe I know you've walked a mile in someone else's shoes
Maybe you've left some faces smiling walking off your blues
And I don't pretend to know how you ever saw it through
Cause I only got to where I am now
Learning how to love you

Learning how to love you
Learning how to love you
Love you

I'm going to introduce  some  notation  for  this  song (and this song
only), since the pattern of  playing  is  much the same throughout the
song.
For this song,                  +       +

marked with * replaced by

Note 1 - Going into the second verse,  the last chord is omitted - hang on
the previous one.
Note 2 - The song finishes  with  this  section  played twice. At the end,
slow down and finish with
