Baby's Coming Back  Jellyfish

Baby's Coming Back
Chords by: Justin Makeig (makeig@nwu.edu)
[C]I knew that when I saw her
that my life would move over from the fast lane
Gone would be the days of all my drinkin' and my carryin' on
But when I settled down
The party king uncrowned
this stubborn memory hadn't faded
too many dumb mistakes
and all the grief it makes
left nothin' else to be debated
[D7]And if you say that you unders[F]tand then your lyin'[C] [F]
[D7]but if you figure that I'm al[F]l [maj7sus2]right now I can't deny it[C] [maj] [-] [C] [sus4] [-] [C] [maj]
[Dm]Baby's comin' ba[G7]ck, Baby's comin' back
so I'm on[Am] my best behavior
I can't tak[Dm]e it anymore I just wok[G]e up on the floor today[A] [min]
D min/A G maj (verse riff)
I've long run out of my last chances but she's on her way
(same as first verse)
If I had a dollar for every single time I fought her I'd buy a handgun
But that couldn't shoot away the bullseye that she made on my heart
(same as first bridge)
And if I sound like a beaten man well I guess so
but on her way is the sweetest prize and I can't let go
(same as first chorus)
Baby's comin' back
Baby's comin' back
so I'm on my best behavior
I can't take it anymore
I just woke up on the floor today c-g-a-e-c-b (descending)
I've long run out of my last chances but she's on her way
[A]Wh[min]at I told her on the telephone was that I'd been so bad[G] [maj] [D] [maj]
[A]I [min]wouldn't blame her if she mowed down these wild oats I'd sown[D] [maj] [G] [maj]
But when she said she [F]gi[maj]ve me one more chance[Bb7]
I said kn[G]oc[maj]k th[G]re[maj]e ti[G]me[maj]s when you arive

This transcription is from the acoustic version that Jellyfish plays.
It will also work on the album version. Sometimes they play it with a
capo on the first fret in which case you'd just move all the chords up
a fret. Also, the chord names on the bridge are an approximation, but the
actual chords are the way that Jellyfish plays them.
The main ryhthm toggles back and forth between the C maj and
C sus4 chords using your pinkie.
[C]I [maj]knew that[C] w[sus4]hen I saw her
