CRY BABY CRY- The Beatles

  G      Am   F                G
Cry baby cry make your mother sigh
      Em7                A7     F  
she's old enough to know better

    Em      Em+7                  Em7
The king of Marigold was in the kitchen
        Em6                 C7  G
cooking breakfast for the queen
    Em               Em+7             Em7
The queen was in the parlour playing piano
            Em6          C7
For the children of the king

 G       Am    F               G
Cry baby cry make your mother sigh
      Em7                   A7       F       G
she's old enough to know better so cry baby cry

The king was in the garden picking flowers 
For a friend who came to play 
The queen was in the playroom painting pictures 
For the childrens holiday ...CHORUS

The duchess of Kircaldy always smiling
And arriving late for tea
The duke was having problems with a message
At the local bird and bee ...CHORUS

At twelve o'clock a meeting round the table
For a seance in the dark
With voices out of nowhere put on specially
By the children for a lark...CHORUS TWICE (end on Em)

Can you take me back where are people, can you take me back
Can you take me back where are people, brother can you take me back
Can you take me back?
Oh can you take me where are people, can you take me back?
