I thought I was a child – Jackson Browne  (Album: For Everyman)
========================================

Intro:
|F      Fsus4|    F      |Dm        |Bb         |
|F           |Am7        |Bb        |C          |
|Bb    C     |F          |Bb        |F          |
|Bb          |Am         |Gm        |C7    A7/C#|
|Dm          |Bb         |F         |F          |


F                                 Dm                Bb
It's such a clever innocence with which you do your sorcery
   F              Am7                Bb                     C
As if somehow the years just bow and let that young girl go free
  Bb        C     F        Bb                F
I thought I was a child until you turned and smiled
  Bb                   Am             Gm              C        A7/C#
I thought I knew where I was going until I heard your laughter flowing
    Dm            Bb             F      Bb  F
And came upon the wisdom in your eyes
    C       C/Bb     Am7    Gm7(11)   C
Surprise!


F                        Bb 
I've spent my whole life running 'round
F                  Bb
Chasing songs from town to town
F               Am                Bb                     C
Thinking I'd be free so long as I never let love slow me down
   Bb     C      F       Bb                F
So lonely and so wild until you turned and smiled
   Bb                Am7
By now I should have long been gone
    Gm              C         A7/C#
But here I am still looking on
   Dm          Bb                F    
As if I didn't know which way to run

Solo:
|C         |Bb        |Am        |D         |
|Gm        |C         |F         |A7        |
|Dm        |Bb        |Dm        |Bb        |
|Dm        |Bb        |F         |C         |

F                                       Dm         Bb
It's such a clever innocence with which you show myself to me
F                     Am7            Bb                   C
As if you know how it feels to never be who you wanted to be
  Bb        C     F        Bb                F
I thought I was a child until you turned and smiled
  Bb                 Am                Gm             C       A7/C#
I thought that I was free but I'm just one more prisoner of time
  Dm             Bb               F
Alone within the boundaries of my mind

|Bb     |F/A     |Gm      |C      |

Bb          C     Dm7
I thought I was a child
