E5 E6 A7 B8 E9 1My brother said that I, was rotten to the core.
E10 E11 A12 F#m713 B14 2I was the youngest child, so I got by with more.
E15 E16 A17 B18 E19 3I guess she was tired by, the time I came along.
E20 E21 A22 F#m723 B24 4She'd laugh until she cried, I could do no wrong.
F#m725 B26 E27 5She would always save me, because I was her baby.
C#m28 A29 8I worked a factory in Ohio, a shrimp boat in the Bayou,
E30 B31 9I drove a truck in Birmingham.
C#m32 A33 10Turned 21 in Cincinnati,I called home to mom and daddy,
E34 B35 11I said "Your boy is now a man."
F#m736 B37 E38 12She said "I don't care if you're 80, you'll always be my baby."
E39 E40 A41 B42 E43 15She loved that photograph, of our whole family.
E44 E45 A46 F#m747 B48 16She'd always point us out, for all her friends to see.
E49 E50 A51 B52 E53 17That's Greg he's doing great, he really loves his job.
E54 E55 A56 F#m757 B58 18And Ronnie with his 2 kids, how 'bout that wife he's got.
F#m759 B60 E61 19And that one's kinda crazy, but that one is my baby.
C#m62 A63 22I got a call in Alabama, said come on home to Louisianna
E64 B65 23and come as fast as you can fly.
C#m66 A67 24Cause your momma really needs you, and says she's got to see you,
E68 B69 25she might not make it through the night.
F#m770 B71 E72 26The whole way I drove 80, so she could see her baby.
C#m73 A74 29She looked like she was sleepin' and my family had been weepin'
E75 B76 30by the time that I got to her side.
C#m77 A78 31And I knew that she'd been taken, and my heart it was breakin',
E79 B80 32I never got to say goodbye.
Em781 A82 33I softly kissed that lady, and cried just like a baby.
