Note - There is a key change on the album.  I didn't include it on this sheet.  
I don't always change keys when I play live.  I'll leave that up to you.  It's just
a half step up.
Intro:  A D A E A D A E
A                                        E                    D                    E
Starin’ at the drawings all over the wall, . . . I could just cry
A                                   E                              D                                               E
Freshly painted white, just two days ago - Sometimes a mom could wonder why
D                               E
Paintbrush in hand, time to start again
 D                              E            D      E           A
Then down in the corner I see - A Little Crayon Heart

(Chorus)
A              D        A     E                 A
A Little Crayon Heart all drawn in red
   D         A                           E
With “I Love Mommy” in the middle
        D          A              E               A
A Little Crayon Heart, no feelings unsaid
D                E              A     A  A
Drawn by hands so little

A                              E                            D                             E
Sittin’ on the floor, starin’ at that heart, lettin’ go of built up tears
A                                         E                                  D                                 E
Thinkin’ ‘bout my kids and how fast they grow -  I don’t want any wasted years
D                                 E
Paintbrush in hand I paint the wall white
 D                              E                D        E          A     
But I just can’t paint that corner, That Little Crayon Heart

(To Chorus)
(Instrumental)
(Bridge:)
A  A          D                    Bmi                       
With her back seat full I watch her drive away
F#mi            E                                     D              E        A
My little girl just couldn’t stay, but I’ll always have her heart

A                D         A       E             A
Her Little Crayon Heart now faded red
D            A                     E
With “I Love Mommy” in the middle
          D         A                        E              A
Her Little Crayon Heart, we left no feelings unsaid
D                E           A
Drawn by hands so little
A                 D           A
Her Little Crayon Heart
D E A
