Cr[G]y baby [Am]cry m[F]ake your mother s[G]igh
she's [Em7]old enough to know [A7]better[F]
The [Em]king of [Em+7]Marigold was in the ki[Em7]tchen
cooking [Em6]breakfast for the qu[C7]een[G]
The [Em]queen was in the [Em+7]parlour playing p[Em7]iano
For the chil[Em6]dren of the k[C7]ing
C[G]ry baby [Am]cry ma[F]ke your mother s[G]igh
she's [Em7]old enough to know bet[A7]ter so cr[F]y baby c[G]ry
The king was in the garden picking flowers
For a friend who came to play
The queen was in the playroom painting pictures
For the childrens holiday ...CHORUS
The duchess of Kircaldy always smiling
And arriving late for tea
The duke was having problems with a message
At the local bird and bee ...CHORUS
At twelve o'clock a meeting round the table
For a seance in the dark
With voices out of nowhere put on specially
By the children for a lark...CHORUS TWICE (end on Em)
C[Fm]an you take me back where came from, can you take me back
Can you take me back where I came from, brother can you take me back
Can you take me back?
Oh can you take me where I came from, brother can you take me back?

The lyrics at the end are "Can you take me back where I came from."

What you wrote doesn't even make sense.

Em+7 should be an Eb on the 4th string, not an E
