I Wish I Could have Been There - John Anderson
Tabbed by JerseyRock!!! ENJOY !!
[C]When our baby [G]Kate was born it was the [Am]biggest
day of my [F]life[C]
Lying there little bows in her hair in the [G]loving
arms of my wife
I was the [Am]proudest [G]papa in the U.S.[F]A.[C]
Making a living on the road somewhere a [G]thousand
miles away
It was a [Am]happy [G]day, but ki[F]nda sad.[C] I wish I coulda
[G]been there[Am]
I wish I coulda [F]been there, I wish I coulda [G]been
there for [C]that
[C]Little Bobby hit his [G]first home run he was the [Am]hero
of the hometown [F]crowd
[C]two to one it was the winning run every[G]body
was cheering loud
[Am]And mama she would [G]smile and say that he's a [F]chip
off of the old block[C]
But I was on the road somewhere between [G]Memphis
and Little Rock
It was a [Am]happy [G]day, but kinda [F]sad.[C] I wish I coulda
[G]been there[Am]
I wish I coulda [F]been there, I wish I coulda [G]been
there for [C]that
[C]Now Bobby and [G]Kate are all grown [Am]up and moved
They stay in touch, we're proud of the [G]two good
kids we raised
and it's [Am]hard to believe we're [G]celebrating our
[F]25th year today
[C]This party's nice, but the kids aren't here,[G] at
least they called to say[Am]
Congradu[G]lations Mom and [F]Dad .[C] I wish we coulda
[G]been there[Am]
I wish we coulda [F]been there, I wish we coulda [G]been
there for [C]that
It was a [Am]happy [G]day, but kin[F]da sad.[C] I wish they
coulda [G]been there[Am]
I wish they coulda [F]been there, I wish they coulda
[G]been there for [C]that.....
