Watching You  Rodney Atkins

[D]     [G]     [D]     [D]                      
VERSE I:
[D]Drivin’ through town just my boy and me
With a happy meal in his booster seat
Knowin’ that he couldn’t have the toy ‘til his[Bb] nuggets were gone.           [C]          [D]
[D]A green traffic light turned straight to red
I hit my brakes and mumbled under my breath.
His fries went a flyin’,  and his orange drink[Bb] covered his lap          [C]      [D]
Well, then my [G]4 year old said a f[A]our letter word
It s[G]tarted w[A]ith S [G]and I was concerned
So I sai[A]d, son, now where’d you learn to talk like that


CHORUS:
He said,  I’ve been w[D]atching you, dad ain’t that cool
I’m your [A]buckaroo, I want to be like you
And eat [G]all my food and grow as tall as [A]you are
We got [D]cowboy boots and camo pants
Yeah, we’re [A]just alike, hey, ain’t we dad
I [G]want to [A]do [G/B]everyt[A]hing you [G]do       [A]
So I’ve been watching [D]you

[D]   [-]   [G]                               
VERSE II:
[D]We got back home and I went to the barn
I bowed my head and I prayed real hard
[Bb]Said, lord, please help me [C]help my stupid [D]self
[D]Just this side of bedtime later that night
Turnin’ on my son’s Scooby-doo nightlight
He [Bb]crawled out of bed and he [C]got down on his [D]knees
He closed [G]his little eyes,  folded [A]his little hands
S[G/B]poke to g[A]od like he was [G]talkin’ to a friend
And I sa[A]id, son, now where’d you learn to pray like that

CHORUS:
He said, I’ve been [D]watching you, dad ain’t that cool
I’m your [A]buckaroo;  I want to be like you
And eat [G]all my food and grow as tall as [A]you are
We like f[D]ixin’ things and holding momma’s hand
Yeah, we’re [A]just alike, hey,  ain’t we dad
I w[G]ant to [A]do e[G/B]veryth[A]ing you [G]do;      [A]
so I’ve been watching [D]you


With [G]tears in my eyes I w[A]rapped him in a hug
Said, my l[G/B]ittle b[A]ear is g[G]rowin’ up
A[G]nd he said[A],  but when I’m big I’ll still know what to do
CHORUS:
‘cause I’ve been [D]watching you,  dad ain’t that cool
I’m your [A]buckaroo’  I want to be like you
And eat [G]all my food and grow as tall as [A]you are
By t[D]hen I’ll be strong as superman
We’ll b[A]e just alike, hey, won’t we dad
When [G]I can [A]do [G/B]everyt[A]hing you [G]do       [A]
‘cause I’ve been watchin’ yo[D]u
