Here is a song written by Jesse that was
inspired by his fourteen year old daughter.
Another example of his insightful and
sensitive lyrical ability.  

Hope you enjoy it.


It Takes A Young Girl [Key of E--3/4 tempo]

Words and Music by Jesse Winchester


[E] It takes a [E] young girl to make an

[B7] old man [E] smile. [Esus] 

[E] It takes a [E] young girl to make an

[G#7] old man [A] fly. 


[CHORUS]

[A] Why should it [B7] take always a 

[E] young [C#m] girl to [A] move this 

old [B7] heart of [E] mine. [B7]



It would take an [E] old man too 

[B7] long to ex-[E] plain.[Esus] 

[E] How a young girl plays 

an [G#7] old, old [A] game. But that's just 

how it [B7] is first she's yours and then 

she's [C#m] his and that's [E]always, 

[B7]always the [E] same. [B7]



It's been [E] ten long [B7] years since 

I've [E] cried. It's been [E] five, I know

[G#7] five since I've even [A] tried.

Now [A] why should it [B7] take always a 

[E] young [A] girl to [E] move this old 

[B7] heart of [E] mine. But. . .

[CHORUS]
