Sweet baby james  James Taylor

1.]There is a [D]young cowboy;  he live[A]s on the ra[G]nge.__               [F#m]
[Bis]                                    [Bm]Horse and his cattle [G]are his only compa[D]nions.   [F#m]
He works[Bm] in the saddle and[G] sleeps in the[D] canyons,         [F#m]
[G]               [D]               [A]      [Em7]waiting for summer, his pa[A]stures to change.
And as t[G]he moon rises, he sits by his [A7s4]fire        [D]
[Bm]thinking about wome[G]n and glasses of [D]beer.           [A]
        [G]                            [A7s4] [D]And closing his eyes while the doggies retire.
He sin[Bm]gs out a song which[G] is soft but i[D]ts clear,
as[E7s4] if maybe someone [E7]could hear.         [A7s4]                          [A]
[D]Goodnight all you moonligh[G]t ladies     [A]        [D]
[Bm]Rock-a-bye sweet[G] baby James              [D]
[Bm]Deep greens and blues are the[G] colors I choose[D]
Wont you let me[E7s4] go down in my [E7]dreams        [A7s4]               [A]
and roc[G]k-a-bye sweet bab[A]y James.        [D]

2.] N[D]ow the first of December was cove[A]red in snow [G]               [F#m]
[Bm]so was the turnpik[G]e from Stockbrid[D]ge to Boston         [F#m]
                 [Bm]                   [G] [D]though the Berksh[F#m]ires seemed dreamlike on account of the frosting
        [G]                 [D]           [A] [Em7]with ten miles behind me[A] and ten thousand more to go.___You know
There's a song [G]that they sing when they take to the highwa[A7s4]y           [D]
a s[Bm]ong that they sing[G] when they take to the[D] sea            [A]
a so[G]ng that they sing of their home in the[A7s4] sky                      [D]
Maybe you ca[Bm]n believe if it he[G]lps you[D] to sleep
The sin[E7s4]ging works just fine [E7]for me.       [A7s4]                        [A]
