Grown-Up Christmas List

(David Foster/Linda Thompson Jenner)

	  		Whew..this will go down in the record books as one of the hardest 
songs ever to pick out! I tried to get it as close as possible  
to the complex piano chords on the recording. 
 
**Play with a capo on 4 to match album key** 
 
 
    G     D/F#  Em          D        C 
Do you remember me, I sat upon your knee 
   C       G/B       Am       Am7    D 
I wrote to you with childhood fantasies  
       G      D/F#     Em                  D        C 
Well, I'm all grown-up now and still need help somehow 
     C     G/B      Am       Am7        D 
I'm not a child but my heart still can dream  
 
    G        D/F#     Em                  D        C 
So here's my lifelong wish, my grown-up Christmas list 
     C     G/B     Am      Am7    D 
Not for myself but for a world in need
