Fountain Of Sorrow.
Jackson Browne & J.D. Souther.
Album: Late For The Sky.

Intro: Bm7 Dmaj7 G D7 Bm7 A G D
Bm      F#m          A
Looking through some photographs, 
  Gmaj7          D
I found inside a drawer,
      Bm   A/B   A             G  Dmaj7
I was taken by a photograph of you,
           Bm     F#m   Bm        A
There were one or two I know that you,
           G              D
Would have liked a little more,
E6       Bm7              A                   D G A D
But they didn't show your spirit quite as true.

         F#m                           D
You were turning 'round to see who was behind you,
      F#m                            D       A/G F#m7
And I took your childish laughter by surprise,
           G              G6                 Bm
And at the moment that my camera happened to find you,
          Em              Gmaj7          Dmaj7
There was just a trace of sorrow in your eyes.

        Bm            A
Now the things that I remember,
     G6         Gmaj7  Dmaj7
Seem so distant and so small
          Bm7           A                G    D A
Though it hasn't really been that long a time,
    Bm            A               D           Gmaj7 D
What I was seeing wasn't what was happening at all,
               A/B        A6               G    D
Although for a while, our path did seem to climb,
                 F#m
But when you see through love's illusions, 
               Dmaj7
There lies the danger,
         F#m                                     A
And your perfect lover just looks like a perfect fool,
F#m7      G                                  Bm      F#m7 Bm
So you go running off in search of a perfect stranger,
          G          A6       G6
While the loneliness seems to spring from your life,
                A/C#   A   Bm7 A G6
Like a fountain from a pool.

            D     Bb F#7/A#     Bm    A G
Fountain of sorrow, fountain of light,
       Dmaj7             A
You've known that hollow sound, 
        Bb           Bm7    G
Of your own steps in flight,
              D/A                Edim7 F#7/A#     Bm7
You've had to hide sometimes, but now  you're all right,
         D                G/D                  D G A D G D/F# E7 D 
And it's good to see your smiling face tonight.

Break: A6 E7 G Dmaj7 Bm7 Dmaj7 Gmaj7 D Bm7 A6 Dmaj7 G6 G7 D Bm A D

        Bm            A6
Now for you and me it may not be, 
D    G6                D
That hard to reach our dreams,
         Bm7           A              G    D
But that magic feeling never seems to last,
    A         Bm                 A         G
And while the future's there for anyone to change, 
G        A7/C#    Dmaj7
Still you know it seems,
            Bm7        A                   G   D
It would be easier sometimes to change the past,
         F#m
I'm just one or two years, 
                A       D
And a couple of changes behind you,
      F#m                                  A7
In my lessons at love's pain and heartache school,
     F#m7         G
Where if you feel too free,
                       A6        F#m Bm
And you need something to remind you,
             Em                   G6
There's this loneliness springing up from your life,
                A/C#   A   Bm7 A G
Like a fountain from a pool.

            A     Edim7         Bb Bm   A/B G
Fountain of sorrow,    fountain of light,
                  D           G
You've known that hollow sound, 
           F#7/A#    Bm7   G
Of your own steps in flight,
              D/A                F#7/A#           Bm7
You've had to hide sometimes, but now  you're all right,
         D                G/D      D           G D/F# E7 D x 2
And it's good to see your smiling face tonight.

Break: Bm D/A G D/A Gmaj7 C Bm Gmaj7 C G D/A A7 G

            A6    Bb            Bm7   A/B G
Fountain of sorrow, fountain of light,
                  D/A         Edim7
You've known that hollow sound, 
                     Bm7   G
Of your own steps in flight,
              D       Bb              Bm   Gmaj7
You've had to struggle, you've had to fight,
             D       Bb                 Bm   A6 G
To keep understanding and compassion in sight,
             D             Bb               Bm Bm7
You could be laughing at me, you've got the right,
    G         D/A    Bb                Bm7 Gmaj7 D
But you go on smiling, so clear and so bright.

Fade: F#7/A# Bm Dmaj7 G D/A Bb Bm Dmaj7 Gmaj7 D/A 
A Bb Bm7 Gmaj7 D/A Bb Bm Dmaj7 -  G D/F# E7 D x 2
