Charlie - Kenneth Pattengale & Joey Ryan (Milk Carton Kids)

This is Kenneth's part only.  He does a lot of hammer-ons and pull-offs, so feel 
free to improvise with what sounds good.

Charlie, I'll make a deal with you
G/C                             C        C7
after which you can do anything you want to 
F                   G/C        Am                C
I know I've got the leg up, as you're still only made up 
F                   G/C                 C
but baby you know I wrote this song for you 

C                 Am         F         C
Don't go kissing boys, don't make a lot of noise 
G/C                                   C      C7
let daddy sing his songs, and be real good 
F                        G/C             Am          C
just treat your teachers nice and find a healthy appetite
F                    G/C            C 
for what you really, really want to do 

C                   Am        F                C
And if in fact your married before the day I'm buried

follow just my one and only rule
F                  G/C       Am                 C 
for everything you do just remember through and through 
F                        G/C             C
be my best friend 'cause i'll be one for you

Charlie, oh my baby, you'll be every bit the lady 
F                      G/C             C
that'll go on breaking this old lonely heart 


C                      Am              F            C
I know just how you'll be cause you'll be just like me
G/C                              C      C7 
charming, so alarming & a little crazy 
F                      G/C         Am             C
the queen of some sand castle, an abrasive, rowdy hassle 
F                    G/C               C
but kind and loving, fresh and bright, I know 

C               Am          F                        C
Come to me with problems, I swear, I won't go try to solve 'em 
G/C                             C     C7
I'll only tell you everything I know 
F                      G/C             Am               C             
like standing tall was all I had, like boys are bad and love's a fad
F                G/C                C 
that no one ever learns to just let go

that'll go on breaking this old lonely heart 


C                         Am           F                   C
Charlie, there's just one little thing before we meet some lovely spring 
E7                                   Am
I have to go and you find you a nice momma
F                   G/C         Am              C 
she'll be just like me and you, perfect in just what we do

a love as strong as father and his daughter
