Intro:D - G - D - G 
 /w RIFF A(x2)


  D
Drivin' through town just my boy and me.  With a "Happy Meal" in his booster seat
  Bb                               C                         D      
Knowin' that he couldn't have the toy 'til his nuggets were gone. 
    D
A green traffic light turned straight to red.  I hit my brakes and mumbled under my breath.
      Bb                           C                       D
His fries went a flyin', and his orange drink covered his lap
              G                 A
Well, then my 4 year old said a 4 letter word
     G/B         A      G
It started with "S" and I was concerned
   G                  D/F#                Em   D/F#  G      A
So I said, "Son, now where'd you learn to talk like that?"


Chorus:
                      D
He said, I've been watching you, dad ain't that cool?
            A
I'm your buckaroo, I want to be like you.
         G                               A       RIFF B
And eat all my food and grow as tall as you are.
         D
We got cowboy boots and camo pants
             A
Yeah, we're just alike, hey, ain't we dad
    G     A    G/B  A       G    A
I want to do everything you do.
                       D
So I've been watching you. 


Bridge 1:D - G
 /w RIFF A


    D
We got back home and I went to the barn.  I bowed my head and I prayed real hard
        Bb            C                     D
Said, "Lord, please help me help my stupid self."
      D
Then this side of bedtime later that night.  Turnin' on my son's Scooby-doo nightlight.
      Bb                      C                D
He crawled out of bed and he got down on his knees.
           G                       A
He closed his little eyes, folded his little hands
 G/B      A                G
Spoke to God like he was talkin' to a friend.
    G                   D/F#                Em  D/F#  G      A
And I said, "Son, now where'd you learn to pray like that?"


Chorus:
                      D
He said, I've been watching you, dad ain't that cool?
            A
I'm your buckaroo, I want to be like you.
         G                               A       RIFF B
And eat all my food and grow as tall as you are.
          D
We live fixin' things and holdin' mama's hand
             A
Yeah, we're just alike, hey, ain't we dad
    G     A    G/B  A       G    A
I want to do everything you do.
                       D   RIFF C
So I've been watching you. 


Bridge 2:

C                       G
With tears in my eyes I wrapped him in a hug.
             D
Said, "My little bear is growin' up."
    C                       G         Em         G      A   RIFF D
And he said, "But when I'm big I'll still know what to do."


Chorus:
                      D
'cause I've been watching you, dad ain't that cool?
            A
I'm your buckaroo, I want to be like you.
         G                               A
And eat all my food and grow as tall as you are.
         D
By then I'll be strong as superman
          A
We'll be just alike, hey, won't we dad
     G     A    G/B  A       G    A
When I can do everything you do.
                       D
'cause I've been watching you.
