I Wish I Could've Been There

 When our baby Kate was born it was the biggest day of my life
 CG
 Lying there little bows in her hair in the loving arms of my wife
 AmGF
I was the proudest papa in the U.S.A.
 CG
 Making a living on the road somewhere a thousand miles away
 AmGFCG
It was a happy day, but kinda sad.  I wish I coulda been there
 AmFGC
 I wish I coulda been there, I wish I coulda been there for that.

 Little Bobby hit his first home run he was the hero of the hometown  
crowd
 CG
 2 to 1 it was the winning run, everybody was cheering loud
 AmGF
 And mama she was smiling saying, he's a chip off of the old block
 CG
 But I was on the road somewhere between Memphis and Little Rock
 AmGFCG
It was a happy day, but kinda sad.  I wish I coulda been there
 AmFGC
 I wish I coulda been there, I wish I coulda been there for that.

 CGAmF
 Now Bobby and Kate are all grown up and moved away
 CG
 They stay in touch, we're proud of the two good kids we raised
 AmGF
And it's hard to believe we're celebrating our 25th year today
 CG
 This party's nice, but the kids aren't here, at least they called to say
 AmGFCG
 Congradulations Mom and Dad .  I wish we coulda been there
 AmFGC
 I wish we coulda been there, I wish we coulda been there for that.
 AmGFCG
It was a happy day, but kinda sad.  I wish they coulda been there
 AmFGC
 I wish they coulda been there, I wish they coulda been there for that.
