D6    [x-x-0-4-3-2]
Dmaj7 [x-x-0-2-2-2]
A7    [x-0-2-0-2-0]

    D - D6 - Dmaj7 - D6 X2

[Verse 1]
D           Dmaj7                 D7
   There he sits with a pen and a yellow pad
        G           A7            D
What a handsome lad,   that's my boy
D     Dmaj7        D7
  B-R-L-F-Q spells mom and dad
            G            A7                 D
Well, that ain't too bad, 'cause that's my boy

[Chorus 1]
    G                         A           F#         Bm
      Well, you can have your TV and your nightclubs
    G                       A                D
      And you can have your drive-in picture show
    G                      A                      F#                  Bm
    I'll stay here with my little man near, we'll listen to the radio
    G                  A               D
    Biding my time and watching Scotty grow

    D - D6 - Dmaj7 - D6 

[Verse 2]
D          Dmaj7         D7
  Makin' a castle out of building blocks
      G             A7          D
And a cardboard box, that's my boy
D        Dmaj7               D7
  Mickey Mouse says it's thirteen o'clock
             G             A7           D 
Well, that's quite a shock,  that's my boy

[Chorus 2]
        G                     A                 F#      Bm
     In four short years I've gone from rags to riches
        G            A                 D
    And what I did before that I don't know
        G                 A             F#             Bm
     So let it rain on my windowpane, I got my own rainbow
              G                    A               D
    And we're sittin' here shinin' watching Scotty grow

[Verse 3]
D           Dmaj7             D7
  Riding on daddy's shoulders off to bed
    G           A7              D
Old sleepy head, that's my boy
                     D                                 A
Gotta have a drink of water and a story read
                             G                A         D
A teddy bear named Fred, that's my boy

[Chorus 3]
      G                         A                     F#        Bm
      What's that you say mama, come on and keep your feet warm
      G                        A                    D
 Well save me a place, I'll be there in a minute or so
      G                     A                     F#              Bm
    I think I'll stay right here and say a little prayer before I go
      G           A               D
      Me and God, watching Scotty grow
      G           A               D
      Me and God, watching Scotty grow
