C             G                        Am               
When our baby Kate was born it was the biggest 
          F    C
day of my life
                                           G
Lying there little bows in her hair in the loving

arms of my wife
          Am       G               F   C
I was the proudest papa in the U.S.A.
                                        G
Making a living on the road somewhere a thousand 

miles away


         Am    G          F       C
It was a happy day, but kinda sad.  I wish I coulda
G          Am
been there
                F                           G 
I wish I coulda been there, I wish I coulda been
          C
there for that


C                    G                         Am
Little Bobby hit his first home run he was the hero 
                F
of the hometown crowd
C                                       G
two to one it was the winning run  everybody 

was cheering loud
Am                 G                         F
And mama she would smile and say that he's a chip 
                     C
off of the old block
                                        G
But I was on the road somewhere between Memphis 

and Little Rock


         Am    G              F   C
It was a happy day, but kinda sad.  I wish I coulda 
G          Am
been there
                F                           G   
I wish I coulda been there, I wish I coulda been 
          C
there for that



C             G                  Am 
Now Bobby and Kate are all grown up and moved 
F    C
away
                                       G
They stay in touch, we're proud of the two good 

kids we raised
         Am                    G 
and it's hard to believe we're celebrating our 
F
25th year today
C                                           G               
This party's nice, but the kids aren't here, at 
                          Am
least they called to say


        G               F    C 
Congradulations Mom and Dad. I wish we coulda 
G          Am
been there
                 F                            G 
I wish we coulda been there, I wish we coulda been
          C
there for that
         Am    G           F      C     
It was a happy day, but kinda sad.  I wish they 
       G          Am
coulda been there
                   F     
I wish they coulda been there, I wish they coulda 
G              C
been there for that.....

Sounds great but I play a C between the F and G in the chorus. I'm sure it's fine both ways but F,C,G,C seems to sound more like the original to me when finger picking the song.
