I Wish I Could've Been There  John Anderson

[C]When our baby Ka[G]te was born it was the b[Am]iggest day of my [F]life
[C]Lying there little bows in her hair in the l[G]oving arms of my wife
I was the [Am]proudest [G]papa in the U.S.[F]A.
[C]Making a living on the road somewhere a [G]thousand miles away
It was a [Am]happy [G]day, but kind[F]a sad.  [C]I wish I coulda [G]been there
[Am]I wish I coulda [F]been there, I wish I coulda [G]been there for [C]that.

[C]Little Bobby hit his [G]first home run he was the h[Am]ero of the hometown [F]
crowd
[C]2 to 1 it was the winning run, every[G]body was cheering loud
[Am]And mama she was [G]smiling saying, he's a [F]chip off of the old block
[C]But I was on the road somewhere between [G]Memphis and Little Rock
It was a [Am]happy [G]day, but kind[F]a sad.  [C]I wish I coulda [G]been there
[Am]I wish I coulda [F]been there, I wish I coulda [G]been there for [C]that.


[C]Now Bobby and Ka[G]te are all grown [Am]up and moved aw[F]ay
[C]They stay in touch, we're proud of the t[G]wo good kids we raised
And it's [Am]hard to believe we're [G]celebrating our 2[F]5th year today
[C]This party's nice, but the kids aren't here,[G] at least they called to say
[Am]Congradul[G]ations Mom and [F]Dad .  [C]I wish we coulda[G] been there
[Am]I wish we coulda[F] been there, I wish we could[G]a been there fo[C]r that.
It was a [Am]happy [G]day, but kind[F]a sad.  [C]I wish they coul[G]da been there
[Am]I wish they coul[F]da been there, I wish they coulda[G] been there for th[C]at.
