      JAMES TAYLOR - DADDY'S BABY. From WALKING MAN album.
                     Released 1974.

---------------------------------------------------------

      Tabbed by:PJVillanueva







Daddy's baby, what's got you thinking? 
What's got you sinking so low?
Is there something I should know, 
something new to you?

Daddy's baby fussing and fretting, 
keeping on getting it wrong.
She can only last so long
She's going for a song  
So sing her a lullaby-bye bye,
Baby don't like to cry. 
So sing her a lullaby-bye bye,
Swaddle and swing her. 
Sing her a lullaby.

She makes her feelings known to me 
Her every side is shown to me.
And in our time alone 
my love has surely grown of its own.
Silent as a stepping stone, 
silently as the dawn was breaking
soft and clear and my tears were dry 
and my fears had flown so I called my love my home.






      Use a capo on the 1st fret
