[Intro] 
G  D   Bm  G  A  D

[Verse 1]
D                   Dmaj7
I never once backed down from a punch
      D7                        G
Well, I'd take it square on the chin
     Gm                  D            Bm
Well I found out fast, a bully’s just that
    G             Em          A  
And you’ve got to stand up to him
   D                   Dmaj7
So I didn't cry when I got a black eye
   D7                    G
As bad as it hurt I just grinned
         Gm                     D           Bm       
But when tough little boys grow up to  be   Dads
          G        A      D
They turn into big babies again
Bm                          G
Scared me to death when you took your first steps
         D         A             D      
Well I'd fall everytime you fell down
         Bm                 G            F#
your first day at school, I cried like a fool
  Em                          A
I followed your school bus to town

[Chorus]
     D                 Dmaj7
Well I didn't cry when old Yeller died 
   D7                       G
At least not in front of my friends
         Gm                     D  C#  Bm2   A 
But when tough little boys grow up to  be   Dads
          G        A       D
They turn into big babies again

[Interlude]
Gm   D  C#  Bm2  A  G   A   D

[Verse 2]
     D                      Dmaj7
Well I'm a grown man but as strong as I am
     D7                        G
Well sometimes it's hard to believe
    Gm                   D             Bm 
How one little girl with little blonde curls
    G       Em      A
Can totally terrify me 
   D                   Dmaj7
If you were to ask, my wife would just laugh
      D7                   G 
She'd say I know all about men
    Gm                     D           Bm      
How tough little boys grow up to  be   Dads
     G             A      D
They turn into big babies again
     Bm                  G
Well I know one day I'll give you away 
    D            A               D 
And I'm gonna to stand there and smile
         Bm             G       F#
But when I get home and I'm all alone
Em                          A
I'll sit in your room for a while

[Chorus]
     D                 Dmaj7
Well I didn't cry when old Yeller died 
   D7                       G
At least not in front of my friends
         Gm                     D  C#  Bm2  A  
But when tough little boys grow up to  be   Dads
          G        A      D
They turn into big babies again
     Gm                     D  C#  Bm   A
When tough little boys grow up to  be   Dads
          G        A       D      
They turn into big babies again

[Outro]
G  D  C#  Bm  A  G  Em  A  D
