A Child In These Hills


by Jackson Browne
I am a child in these hills
I am away, I am alone
I am a child in these hills
I'm looking for water, and looking for life
Who will show me the river and ask me my name
Is there nobody here who can do that?

 C:	Well I have come to these hills,
I will come to the river,
As I choose to be gone
From the house of my father
I am a child in these hills

D ---/ As4 -A -/  x2  /  x2  / D ---/ G ---/

 B:	Chased from the gates of the city,
Where no one had touched me
I am away, I am alone
I am a child in these hills
I'm looking for water, and looking for life
Who will show me the river and ask me my name
Is there nobody here who can do that?

 C:	Well I have come to these hills,
I will come to the river,
As I choose to be gone
From the house of my father
I am a child in these hills
