       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

       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

     

    Solo 2:   / D - - - / - - - - / C - - - / - - - - /
