Sweet Baby James

James Taylor

Tom: D
              D                 A                G                F#m  
    There is a young cowboy, he lives on the range.  
         Bm                   G                  D             F#m  
    His horse and his cattle are his only companions.  
         Bm                 G                     D                 F#m  
    He works in the saddle and he sleeps in the canyon.  
    G                   D                A               Em      A  
    Waiting for summer, his pastures to change.  
            G                              A               D  
    And as the moon rises he sits by his fire,  
    Bm                   G                D             A  
    thinkin' about women and glasses of beer.  
           G                                   A               D 
    And closing his eyes as the doggies retire,  
       Bm               G                   D           
    he sings out a song which is soft but it's clear,  
        Bm             E                     A  
    as if maybe someone would hear......  

      
      D                       G             A   D    Bm             G               D  
    Good night you moonlight ladies, rock-a-bye sweet baby James.  
     Bm                      G                    D  
    Deep greens and blues are the colors I choose,  
                    Bm            E                  A  
    won't you let me go down in my dreams.  
            G                  A                 D  
    And rock-a-bye sweet baby James.  

                  D               A                   G                 F#m  
    Now the first of December was covered with snow.  
            Bm              G                  D                     F#m  
    And so was the turnpike from Stockbridge to Boston.  
                   Bm                         G                      D                  F#m  
    Lord, the Berkshires seem dream-like on account of that frostin'?  
             G                   D                A                   Em                       A  
    With ten miles behind me and ten thousand more to go -o - o - o  
                    G                                             A               D  
    There's a song that they sing when they take to the highway,  
      Bm                   G                        D               A  
    a song that they sing when they take to the sea,  
      G                                            A                D  
    a song that they sing of their home in the sky,  
                 Bm             G             D  
    maybe you can believe it if it helps you to sleep.  
           Bm                E                 A  
    But singin' works just fine for me .....  

    (Chorus)
