[Intro]
G C D G
G C D G

[Verse 1]
G                   C
bombs are dropping, smoke fills the air
  D                             G
i wanna duck and cover but i've gotta stay out here
         G                    C
'cause i know myself and if i hole up in my room
        D
i'll be consumed by the doom and the gloom

   G                      C
so i called john 'cause i know he knows sorrow
D                       G
he said "i'll be in the city tomorrow"
   G               C
so i go down and i watch him sing
               D                                         
and the way he sings sends a chill right through me, yeah

G                 C
and now there's a mountain goat
   D                         G
precariously balanced on the frog stuck in my throat
G                  C
it says "sometimes whispering's okay,
    D
but maybe you'd feel better if you screamed today"

[Chorus] 
G
the lady took the baby
  C
i know she loves the baby
        D
but the baby has a daddy
        G
and his daddy loves him too
    G
how could she take the baby?
C
maybe she's gone crazy
D
she won't share
it's not fair
there's nothing i can do
G
the lady took the baby
  C
i know she loves the baby
        D
but the baby has a daddy
        G
and his daddy loves him too
    G
how could she take the baby?
C
maybe she's gone crazy
D
she won't share
it's not fair
there's nothing i can do


[Verse 2]
G                     C
tuesday night grandma curled up in my bed
D                       G
by wednesday morning my grandma was dead
G                     C
i was in charlotte, i took the bus home
    D
her shoes, watch, and teeth were still in my room

    G           C             D                 G
and as i lay me down to sleep i felt her spirit rise up through me
          G                    C                          D
she said "i got to live a long eighty six years, dry your tears.
G                    C                D                       G
i know it's hard but please let go so i can meet your grandpa in the undertow
G                    C                     D
chin up girl, you've got to be strong, and know when you're singing i'm singing along"

[Outro]
G                 C
little bitty baby so far away
   D                 G
we hope that you can come home soon
G                        C
when we're not together, now or ever
D               G
always remember i love you

G                 C
little bitty baby so far away
   D                 G
we hope that you can come home soon
G                        C
when we're not together, now or ever
D               G
always remember i love you
