Nothing But A Child, by Steve Earle
as performed by Kathy Mattea on her Xmas CD "Good News"

(If you know how to detune the low E on the guitar to a D,
hit that as the bass note for all chords in first verse.)

Verse 1:
D                                 G            A
Once upon a time                  In a far off land

G              A                      G        A
Wise men saw a sign               And set out 'cross the sand

D                                      G                 A
Songs of praise to sing           They travelled day and night

G                 A                         G      A      D 
Precious gifts to bring           They were guided by the light.

Verse 2:
They chased a brand new star      Ever towards the west
Across the mountains far          But when it came to rest
They scarce believed their eyes   They'd come so many miles
The miracle they prized           Was nothing but a child

Chorus:
G       D     G6                        D          F#m    Bm
Nothing but a child               Could wash those tears away
   G             A                  G      A        D   
Or guide a weary world            Into the light of day
G       D     G6                        D     F#m        Bm 
Nothing but a child               Could help erase those miles
   G             A                       G        A     D
So once again we all              Can be children for a while.

Solo (= same the tag): G   A   G   A   G A D

Verse 3:
Now all around the world       In every little town
Every day is heard             A precious little sound
And every mother kind          And every father, proud
Looks down in awe to fiund     Another chance allowed

[chorus]

tag:
G             A
Nothing but a little baby
G             A
Nothing but a little baby
G       A     D
Nothing but a child
