THE BABY
(Blake Shelton)
 

(E) My (E/G#) brother (A) said that I (B7) was rotten to the (E) core
I (E/G#) was the (A) youngest child, (F#m) so I got by with (B7) more
(E) I guess (E/G#) she was (A) tired by, (B7) the time I came (E) along
She'd (E/G#) laugh until (A) she cried, (F#m) I could do no (B7) wrong
(F#m) She would always save me (B7)
Because I was her (E) baby
 
I worked a (C#m) factory in Ohio
A (A) shrimp boat in the buyou
(E) Drove a truck in Birming(B7)ham
Turned twenty-(C#m)one in Cincinatti
(A) Called home to mom and daddy
(E) Said, your boy's now a (B7) man
She said I (F#m) don't care if you're 80
(B7) You'll always be my (E) baby
 
She (E/G#) loved that (A) photograph (B7) of our whole fami(E)ly
She'd (E/G#) always (A) point us out, (F#m) for all her friends to (B7) see
(E) "That's (E/G#) Greg, he (A) doing great - (B7) he really loves his (E) job
Ron(E/G#)nie with (A) his two kids, (F#m) how 'bout that wife he's (B7) got
And (F#m) that one's kinda crazy (B7)
But, that one is my baby"
 
I got a (C#m) call in Alabama
Said, "come on (A) home to Louisiana
(E) And come as fast as you can (B7) fly
Cause your (C#m) mama really needs you
She (A) says she's gotta see you
(E) She might not make it through the (B7) night"
(F#m) The whole way I drove 80 (B7)
So she could see her (E) baby
 
She (C#m) looked like she was sleeping -
And my (A) family had been weeping
(E) By the time that I got to her (B7) side
I (C#m) knew that she'd been taken
And my (A) heart it was breakin'
(E) I never got to say good(B7)bye
I (F#m) softly kissed that lady
(B7) And cried just like a (E) baby
