If anyone knows the right lyrics, especially to Sean Paul's sections, please feel free to correct :)


[Intro]
Am      F                 G   C
Call it love and devotion
                    Am
Call it the mom’s adoration
            F
Foundation
          G               C
A special bond of creation, hah
Am  F                        G                       C
For all the single mums out there going through frustration
      F               Dm           E
Clean Bandit, Sean-da-Paul, Anne-Marie


[Verse 1]
              Am   F          G    Em
She works the night, by the water
             Am             F
She's gone astray, so far away
                    G        Em
From her father's daughter
                Am  F         G     Em
She just wants a life for her baby
           Am                F
All on her own, no one will come
             G               Em
She's got to save him (daily struggle)


[Pre-Chorus]
               Am         F                        G   
She tells him "ooh, love, no one's ever gonna hurt you, love
Em                        Am
I'm gonna give you all of my love
F                   G      Em
Nobody matters like you"
               Am        F                           G
She tells him "your life ain't gonna be nothing like my life
Em                           Am
You're gonna grow and have a good life
F                      G      Em
I'm gonna do what I've got to do"


[Chorus]
    Am       F           G
So, Rockabye baby, Rockabye
Em
I'm gonna rock you
Am       F                G
Rockabye baby, don't you cry
Em
Somebody's got you
Am       F          G
Rockabye baby, Rockabye
Em
I'm gonna rock you
Am       F                G
Rockabye baby, don't you cry
      Am   F     G           Em
Rockabye,   no    (rockabye, rock-a rock-a rockabye)
    Am   F   G           Em
Rockabye,    (rockabye, rock-a rock-a rockabye)


[Verse 2]
Am              F
Single mama you doing out there
G                     Em
Facing the hard life, without no fear
Am                    F
Just so you know that you really care
      G                 Em
Cause any obstacle come you’re well prepared
Am               F
And no mama, you never shed tear 
      G                      Em
Cause you have to set things year and to year
    Am                      F
And you give the youth love beyond compare
G                       Em
You find his school fee and the bus fare
Am             F
Mmm Marie, the paps' disappear
G                       Em
In the round back can’t find him nowhere
Am                      F
Steadily you work flow, everything you know
G                             Em
You know say you nuh stop the time fi a jear

Am                       F
Now she gotta a six year old
          G 
Trying to keep him warm
Em                     Am
Trying to keep out the cold
        F
When he looks in her eyes
G                  Em
He don't know he's safe


[Pre-Chorus]
               Am         F                        G   
When she says "ooh, love, no one's ever gonna hurt you, love
Em                        Am
I'm gonna give you all of my love
F                   G      Em
Nobody matters like you"


[Chorus]
    Am       F           G
So, Rockabye baby, Rockabye
Em
I'm gonna rock you
Am       F                G
Rockabye baby, don't you cry
Em
Somebody's got you
Am       F          G
Rockabye baby, Rockabye
Em
I'm gonna rock you
Am       F                G
Rockabye baby, don't you cry
      Am   F     G           Em
Rockabye,   no    (rockabye, rock-a rock-a rockabye)
    Am   F   G           Em
Rockabye,    (rockabye, rock-a rock-a rockabye)
Am        F
Rockabye, don't but a cry
G                          Em
Lift up your head, lift it up to the sky
Am        F
Rockabye, don't but a cry
G                     Em
Angels are wrong, you just dry your eyes


[Verse 3]
Am                       F
Now she gotta a six year old
          G 
Trying to keep him warm
Em                     F
Trying to keep out the cold
        F                      E
When he looks her in the eyes
E
He don't know he's safe when she says


[Pre-Chorus]
               Am         F                        G   
She tells him "ooh, love, no one's ever gonna hurt you, love
Em                        Am
I'm gonna give you all of my love
F                   G      Em
Nobody matters like you"
               Am        F                           G
She tells him "your life ain't gonna be nothing like my life
Em                           Am
You're gonna grow and have a good life
F                      G      Em
I'm gonna do what I've got to do"


[Chorus]
    Am       F           G
So, Rockabye baby, Rockabye
Em
I'm gonna rock you
Am       F                G
Rockabye baby, don't you cry
Em
Somebody's got you
Am       F          G
Rockabye baby, Rockabye
Em
I'm gonna rock you
Am       F                G  Em
Rockabye baby, don't you cry
      Am             F               G                          Em

C in the outro is actually Em (also the last C in the intro), everything else is correct. 5 stars.
