The Baby  Blake Shelton

[D]My b[D/F#]rother s[G]aid that I, w[A]as rotten to the c[D]ore
[D]I [D/F#]was the y[G]oungest chil[G]d, [D/F#]     [Em7]so I got by with m[A]ore
[D]I guess [D/F#]she was t[G]ired by, t[A]he time I cam[D]e along
[D]She'd [D/F#]laugh unt[G]il she crie[G]d, [D/F#]     [Em7] I could do no wr[A]ong
[Em7]She would always save me, b[A]ecause I was her b[D]aby


Chorus 1:
I worked a [Bm]factory in Ohio, a s[G]hrimp boat in the Bayou
[D]I drove a truck in Birmingh[A]am
Turned [Bm]21 in Cincinnati, I [G]called home to mom and daddy
[D]I said "Your boy is now a m[A]an."
She said "I [Em7]don't care if you're 80, y[A]ou'll always be my b[D]aby."


Verse 2:
She loved that photograph, of our whole family
She'd always point us out, for all her friends to see
That's Greg he's doing great, he really loves his job
And Ronnie with his 2 kids, how 'bout that wife he's got
And that one's kinda crazy, but that one is my baby

Chorus 2:
I got a call in Alabama, said come on home to Louisiana
And come as fast as you can fly
Cause your momma really needs you, and says she's got to see you
She might not make it through the night
The whole way I drove 80, so she could see her baby

Chorus 3:
She looked like she was sleepin', and my family had been weepin'
By the time that I got to her side
And I knew that she'd been taken, and my heart it was breakin'
I never got to say goodbye
I softly kissed that lady, and cried just like a baby
