- My Baby Needs A Shepherd - 
by Emmylou Harris, from her album 'Red Dirt Girl' (2000)
Written by Emmylou Harris


D                               G               D
My baby needs a shepherd, she's lost out on the hill
                                       A
Too late, I tried to call her when the night was cold and still
      D                               G            D
And I tell myself I'll find her but I know I never will
                                A               D
My baby needs a shepherd, she's lost out on the hill

D                           G                D
My baby needs an angel, she never learned to fly
                                    A
She'll not reach sanctuary just by looking to the sky
  D                                    G           D                    
I guess I could have carried her but I didn't even try
                            A                D
My baby needs an angel, she never learned to fly

D       
Oh, I ran so far through a broken land
      G              D                A
I was following that drummer, beating in a different band
D                           G             D
Somewhere on the highway, I let go of her hand
                                A                 D
Now she's gone forever like her footprints in the sand


Chorus:
      G           D              A                D
Toora loora loora lo, first the seed and then the rose
      G           D  G           D  A        D     
Toora loora loora li, my kingdom fo-or a lullaby


   D                       G             D
My baby needs a pilot, she has no magic wand
                                     A
To help her part the troubled waters of the Rubicon
    D                                 G             D
But in my soul, I know she'll have to go this one alone
                           A              D
After all that is the only way she's ever known


D 
But there is no lamp in all this dark
           G              D               A             
That could chase away her shadow from the corners of my heart
  D                                  G                 D
I pray she rides a dolphin but she's swimmin' with the shark
                                      A            D
Out where none can save her, not even Noah and his ark


Chorus:
      G           D           A               D
Toora loora loora lo, to the cradle comes the crow
      G           D  G           D  A        D
Toora loora loora li, my kingdom fo-or a lullaby


   D                      G                 D
My baby needs a mother to love her till the end
                                   A
Up every rugged mountain and down every road that bends
    D                              G                   D
Sometimes, I hear her cryin' but I guess it's just the wind
                          A                 D
My baby needs a mother to love her till the end
