D (x(x)0323)


[F7/C]Haven't laughed this hard in a long time,

Better[Am] stop now, [G]before I start cr[F]ying. [C/G]
[F7/C]Go off to sleep in the sunshine
Don't [Am]want to see the [G]day when it's d[F]ying.[C/G]
She's a[D] sight to see
She's (a) [F7/C]good to me
But I'm [Am]already [G]somebody's [F]baby.[C/G]
She's a [D]pretty thing,
She knows [F7/C]everything
But I'm [Am]already [G]somebody's [F]baby.[C/G]
[F7/C]You don't deserve to be lonely,
But those d[Am]rugs you got won't [G]make you feel [F]better.[C/G]
[F7/C]Pretty soon you'll find its the only
Little [Am]part of your life you're [G]keeping tog[F]ether. [C/G]
I'm n[D]ice to you,
I could [F7/C]make it through
But you're [Am]already [G]somebody's b[F]aby. [C/G]
I could [D]make you smile,
If you [F7/C]stayed a while
But how [Am]long will you [G]stay with me, b[F]aby? [C/G]
SOLO (see below)

[F7/C]Because your candle burns too bright
Well I [Am]almost for[G]got it was twi[F]light. [C/G]
[F7/C]Even if I think that you are right
Well I'm [Am]tired of being [G]down,
I got [F]no fight.[C/G]
You're [D]wonderful
When it[F7/C]s beautiful
But I'm [Am]already [G]somebody's [F]baby.
If I [D]went with you,
I'd dissa[F]point you too
But I'm [Am]already [G]somebody's [F]baby. (RIFF 1)

[Am]Already [G]somebody's [D]baby.

It goes something like this. I've seen live videos where he sings the melody, but i like

And this is 100% how you play it. You can have some liberty with the notes in the solo.
apologize if the chords are off of the words,
I have a few syllables I do different than elliott
does in his recording, i don't know why.
