   D (2)

She's got a smile that it seems to me

     C (2)

Reminds me of childhood memories

            G (2)                                                                    D (2)

Where everything was as fresh as a bright blue sky

   D (2)

Now and then when I see her face

         C (2)

She takes me away to that special place

                G (2)                                                                      D (2)

And if I stared to long, I'd probably break down and cry

 

Chorus:

   A    C                               D (2)

Whoa-oh, Sweet child of mine

      A               C                   D (2)

Whoa, Oh, Oh, Oh Sweet love of mine

                 / G - - - / - - - - / D - - - / - - - - /

 

   D (2)

She's got eyes of the bluest skies

    C (2)

As if they thought of rain

    G (2)                                        D (2)

I hate to look into those and see an ounce of pain

        D (2)

Her hair reminds me of a warm, safe place

     C (2)

Where as a child I'd hide

           G (2)                                                                                  D (2)

And pray for the thunder and the rain to quietly pass me by

 

Chorus
