[Intro] G

[Verse 1]
             G
I wrote you long love letters
         C                  G
Mama, I sent 'em on day by day
                                     D
I need you now even more than I did before
            G
But as I'm lookin' here's your daddy
               C               G
Comin' with a big ol' shotgun too
                D                      G       C       G
My lovin' situation lookin' mighty poor

[Chorus 1]
              G
So if you're really wonderin'
          C                G
What I'm doin' in your backyard
                                     D
I told you baby, I'd beat it home so soon
               G
But if you're really worried
               C                 G
About what I'm doin' in your backyard
                      D                              G        C        G
Come out later, I'll show you by the light of the moon.

[Verse 2]
             G
I had some dreams and fortunes ready
      C               G
Mama, I got carried away
                                       D
And lookin' back even more than I did before
            G
But as I'm keepin' creepin' hidin' and sleepin'
              C                      G
There's your daddy with the shotgun too
                D                        G       C       G
My lovin' situation ain't nothin' but poor

[Chorus 2]
                G
So if you're really worried
                C                G
'Bout what I'm doin' in your backyard
                                           D
I told you baby, I was beatin' it home so soon
                G
But if you're really worried
                C                 G
About what I'm doin' in your backyard
                          D                           G        C        G
C'mon out later, I'll show you by the light of the moon

[Verse 3]
N.C.
Baby thinkin' bout it
 A
Really might be wonderin' why I'm standin' here cryin'
        D                 A
Honey lookin' in your backyard
                                                         E
You worry 'bout nothin', you got nothin' on your mind but me
            A
But as I'm layin' on my back about
                            D                   A
Thinkin' bout summertime, gettin' back all the way
                  E                 A       D       A
Everything I see, honey remindin' me

[Verse 4]
                        A
C'mon get your lovin' man
                              D                   A
C'mon and get him while he's hot, get him on the run
                                                  E
Baby hear you're lookin' but really too blind to see, ho hey
                             A
Whatcha gonna think about a wham-bam thank-you ma'am
           D                      A
Where you goin' on the wildwood trail
                   E               A       D       A
Everything I see, honey remindin' me

[Chorus 3]
                                A
Baby might be thinkin' bout a-really livin' back
                D                 A
Layin' back, standin' in your backyard
                                          E
I told you baby, I was beatin' it home so soon
            A
If you're really wonderin'
          D                 A
What I'm doin' in your backyard
                        E                             A        D        A
C'mon out later babe, show you by the light of the moon
