IN A YOUNG GIRL'S MIND
(Hoyt Axton - Mark Dawson)
« © '74 Lady Jane Music »

Hand me my guitar there's a song that I was singing
Back when I was young and I had a good time
Looking for love in the misty waters
of the seas that roll in a young girl's mind

Only in shadows and lonely at night
she turns to you softly you turn on the light
You use her, abuse her, and you know it ain't right
to treat one who loves you so badly
When she's doing the best that she can
you know she's doing the best that she can

Do you believe in dreams
do you believe in dreamers
Hoping that you'll find what you're looking for
You don't have to worry cause there's a bright tomorrow
In the dreams that roll in a young girl's mind
Only in shadows...
So hand me my guitar...
Of the seas that roll in a young girl's mind


Sorry, couldn't find chords.

Hoyt Axton recorded this on his album, The Jeremiah Years. I did find a Windows Media/Real Audio file at Amazon, click here if that helps any.

Love this man's songs. Hope this helps!

I knew this melody a long time ago---I was and still am a fan of Hoyt Axton. I'll try to work out the chords tomorrow, and get back to you here.

I just stumbled across this when I was looking for the chords to this song. I couldn't find them so worked them out quickly. Thet may not all be right but it sounds fine with the recording I have. Anyway, enjoy! Craigy

G       D             G

Sorry, my mistake...that line should be a G and not a C over the word "she's"
