Intro to verse 3
(Softly)

[G]                       [D/G]             [B11] [Cadd9] 
Verse 3
(same as before)

She still lives with her mom outside the city
Down that street about a half a mile
And all her friends tell her she's so pretty
But she'd be so much prettier if she smiled once in a while
Cause even her smile looks like a frown
She's seen her share on devils in this angel town

Chorus:

G D/G Cadd9 (Stay on Cadd9)
             Ev-ery----thing's gonna be all     right


        Rocka[G]bye,     [D/G]          Rock       a    [Cadd9]  bye

             Ev-ery----thing's gonna be all     right

A C Tacit
Rockabye, Rock a bye …. Rock a bye

Verse4
(same as before w/ variation on 4th line)

I told her I ain't so sure about this place

It's hard to play a gig in this town and keep a straight face

It seems like everybody's got a plan
[G]It's kind of like [D/G]Nashville with a [G]tan    [Gsus4]

             Ev-ery----thing's gonna be all     right

        To  Rocka[A]bye,               Rock       a       [C]bye ….        Ah, na, na…
Repeat to coda....

a final word:

(you'll have to figure out the coda on your own....lol)
This is not %100 accurate but it's real close.
Have fun...
Hope you enjoy playing the song.
Shawn wrote us all a great one!
