Here is a good oldie for you.
Chords
Am X02210
Dm XX0231
F 133211 or XX3211 But the full barre is easier because it follows a Bb.
Bb X13331 (I have tried just playing the A chord shape on the 3rd fret and it sounded ok, so if you struggle with barre chords you can get away with partial F and an A chord shape on the 3rd fret without the barre)
If anyone has a good intro and any fill please post it.
Jackson Browne
Doctor My Eyes

Intro:

F Bb

Verse 1:
F
Doctor, my eyes have seen the years
Am Dm
And the slow parade of fears without crying
Bb F
Now I want to understand
F
I have done all that I could
Am Dm
To see the evil and the good without hiding
Bb F
You must help me if you can

Chorus:
Dm
Doctor, my eyes
F
Tell me what is wrong
Dm Am F
Was I unwise to leave them open for so long

Verse 2:
F
'cause I have wandered through this world
Am Dm
And as each moment has unfurled
Bb F
I've been waiting to awaken from these dreams
F
People go just where they will
Am Dm
I never noticed them until I got this feeling
Bb F
That it's later than it seems

Chorus:
Dm
Doctor, my eyes
F
Tell me what you see
Dm
I hear their cries
Am F
Just say if it's too late for me

Chorus:
Dm
Doctor, my eyes
F
Cannot see the sky
Dm Am F
Is this the prize for having learned how not to cry

Thanks Rodders,
It was Jackson Brown (no relation to the 5) of "Running on Empty" fame

I use to like this song but have not heard it in a long time. I guess I know what I am tackling next.

I thought you were kidding!

it's the unexpected that keeps me laughing- Thomas Jefferson

There are about five things to write songs about: I'm leaving you. You're leaving me. I want you. You don't want me. I believe in something. Five subjects, and twelve notes. For all that, we musicians do pretty well.
