Baby Step Back:Gordon Lightfoot.
#50 on pop charts and #17 on Alt.
in 1981.

#1.
       Em
Now it looks to me like the same old place,
              D          Em
In the sky it looks like rain.
    A
The same old town with the same old streets,
                    Em
The address has not changed.
        A
You can find me there with the door shut tight
                 D      Em
And the one wish that remains..

CHORUS:
A               
Baby step back, baby step back.
                       Em
Either step up or step back.

#2.
        Em
No, you know I don't write no bad checks,
               D    Em
I have no wish to repent.
A
I've seen a few, but whatever I do,
                     Em
I don't cause no accidents.
A
Whiskey and wine help me pass the time,
              D     Em
I don't leave no evidence.

CHORUS:(x2)

#3.
         Em
Still, I don't kneel down, I was born to fight,
                    D   Em
So you'd best leave me alone.
A                
Maybe I'll get much more than I need,
                           Em
Or much less than I should own.
A
Last of all let me say it again,
               D       Em
either step up or step on.

CHORUS:(x3)

An eighties hit from Kraziekhat.

Try using F#m instead of Em;

Original uses Em. Lightfoot is famous for it. F#m sounds flat. KK.

Hi KK,

What do you think about changing the D chord to a G chord? Sounds better to my ear anyway.

Thanks,
Tom
