Intro:[D A-D] x4

  D
This is a story of a boy named ted,
        A              Am       Em        G-A
if his mother said ted be good, he would.
 D
She told him ted sbout his soldier dad,
         A        Am  Em     G-A  A-B7-C#7
then it made her cry, oh my.

 F#
Ted used to tell her
             F#
he could be twice as good,
       C#                 
and he new he could
          C#m          G#m  B7-C#7
'cause in his head he said:

 F#                   B7
Mommy don't worry now teddy boy's here,
 E                   A
taking good care of you.
 F#                B7
Mommy don't worry teddy boy's here,
  E                      D
Teddy's gonna see you through.

[D A-D] x2

Then came the day she found herself a man
Teddy turned and ran far away, O.K.
He couldn't stand to see his mother in love
with another man he didn't know, oh no.

He found a place
where he could settle down,
and from time to time
in his head he said:

Mommy Don't Worry Now...

She said: teddy don't worry now mommy is here
taking good care of you.
Teddy don't worry your mummy is here,
mummy's gonna see you through 

[D A-D] x3

This is a story of a boy named ted,
if his mother said ted be good, he would.

End:[G A B7 C#7 F#]

Great tab! I've been wanting to do this one for decades.Just ran across it in some old music papers.All the chords seem bang on, except just at the end of the 1st verse, I'm hearing F# instead of C#7. Give it a listen and see what you think. Also, I had to tune up +15 to play along with the original. Thanks again for the tab.
