From: Pat Wildt 

                        I Spoke as a Child
                        By:  Todd Snider

Guitar arrangement for recording of vocal w/ piano accompaniment.
When changing from G to Em, walk the base line down from the
G note (3rd fret low E or 1st string), to F# (2nd fret 1st string)
to open 1st string (E note)

G             Bm    C        G
Everyone has days like I'm having
C               G             D
Holdin on to anything that I can
G           Bm          C           G
To keep myself from anything but laughing
C                G             D
Looking back as far as I can stand
C               D               G
Out my window winter is almost over
      Em              C                 G       D
I can almost see the sun behind these clouds
C                 D              G         Em
Lookin' back on where I was one year ago today
C                 D           G
Laughing at the shape I'm in now.

Chorus:
D                      C          G
When I was a child I spoke as a child
     C               G                D
But all I heard was how I should get ahead,
     C                    D           G
Now growing up it ain't anything but all
         Em                  C
This indecision with these debts and doubts
            D
And worries hanging over my head
     C        D       G          Em
When I was a child I spoke as a child
   C             D              G
I wish I could remember what I said

I'd like to find that old time feelin'
Somewhere in between what I've become
Somewhere down the line it must have seemed appealing
So I suppose that it must work for some
But I wanna go back to going crazy
Believing every word that I was told
You know sometimes growing up I think I'm getting wiser
And then other times I think I'm getting old

Chorus:
When I was a child I spoke as a child
But all I heard was how I should get ahead
Now growing up it ain't anything but all this
Indecision with these debts and doubts and
Worries hangin' over my head
When I was a child I spoke as a child
I wish I could remember what I said

When I was a child I spoke as a child
God I wish I could remember what I said

I think it's a B7 sort of chord rather than Bm. Also I think it's better capo on second but that may be personal preference. Other than that well done, glad to see some-one else who likes Todd Snider!

ACTUALLY Todd uses capo 2nd live. :D

Definitely a Bm. B7 doesn't even sound right, unless the other poster had something else in mind.

Capo is definitely preference. A capo for me makes the key too high for me to sing.
