This song can be played without capo, with capo on the 1st fret, or on the 2nd, depending on your vocal rage

 G
You-was a baby like I was once, You-was-cryin' in the early mornin' 
You-was-born in a stable Lord, Reid Memorial is where I... was born 
 Am                                                              G
They wrapped You in swaddling clothes, Me they dressed in baby blue

 G
I-was twelve-years-old in the meeting house, listening to the old men pray 
And I was tryin' hard to figure out, what it was that they was tryin' to say 
 Am                                                                                   G
There You were in the temple, they said You weren't old enough to know the things You knew

               Am
Well, did You grow up hungry?, did You grow up fast?, did the little girls giggle when You walked past? 
         G
Did You wonder what it was, that made them laugh?
          Am
[Did they tell You stories 'bout the saints of old?, stories about their faith? 
          D                                                                          G
They say stories like that make a boy grow bold, stories like that make a man walk straight]

 G                
You was a boy like I was once, but was You a boy like me 
Well, I grew up around Indiana, you grew up around Galilee 
     Am                                                                   G
And if I ever really do grow up, Lord I want to grow up and be just like You

          Am                          
Did You wrestle with a dog and lick his nose?, did You play beneath the spray, of a water hose? 
                 G
Did You ever make angels in the winter snow?
          Am
[Did they tell You stories 'bout the saints of old?, stories about their faith? 
          D                                                                          G
They say stories like that make a boy grow bold, stories like that make a man walk straight]

(whistling solo)
G    Am   G

       Am
Did You ever get scared, playing hide and seek?, did You try not to cry, when You scraped Your knee? 
        G
Did You ever skip a rock across a quiet creek?

          Am
[Did they tell You stories 'bout the saints of old?, stories about their faith? 
          D                                                                          G
They say stories like that make a boy grow bold, stories like that make a man walk straight]
       Am                                          G
And I really may just grow up, and be like You someday

I just noticed that after "G" , you can alternate it with "Cadd9" to reach the effect of the original song. I play a version of this song at soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/goose-sound/boy-like-me-man-like-you-rich-mullins-cover
