[Verse]

Am                     D7                        G
   Now that I've lost everything to you
                     Cmaj7                            F
You say you want to start something new
             Daddx                               E                          Esus2    E
And it's breaking my heart you're leaving, baby I'm grieving
Am                         D7                     G
But if you want to leave take good care
                            Cmaj7                      F
Hope you have a lot of nice things to wear
                  Daddx                            E                (RIFF1)
But then a lot of nice things turn bad out there


[Chorus]

C             G6                      F                (RIFF2)
    Oh, baby, baby it's a wild world
G6                   F                      C      (RIFF3)
It's hard to get by just upon a smile
C     G6                      F                (RIFF2)
Oh, baby, baby it's a wild world
G6             F                                C            (G6 – Em)
I'll always remember you like a child, girl


[Verse] (same chords as 1st verse)

You know I've seen a lot of what the world can do
And it's breaking my heart in two
'Cos I never want to see you sad girl. don't be a bad girl
But if you want to leave take good care
Hope you make a lot of nice friends out there
But just remember there's a lot of bad and beware


[Chorus]

C             G6                      F                (RIFF2)
    Oh, baby, baby it's a wild world
G6                   F                      C      (RIFF3)
It's hard to get by just upon a smile
C     G6                      F                (RIFF2)
Oh, baby, baby it's a wild world
G6             F                                C            (G6 – Em)
I'll always remember you like a child, girl


[Bridge]

Baby I love you
But if you want to leave take good care
Hope you make a lot of nice friends out there
But just remember there's a lot of bad and beware


[Chorus]

C             G6                      F                (RIFF2)
    Oh, baby, baby it's a wild world
G6                   F                      C      (RIFF3)
It's hard to get by just upon a smile
C     G6                      F                (RIFF2)
Oh, baby, baby it's a wild world
G6             F                                C            (G6 – Em)
I'll always remember you like a child, girl
