[Intro]
D(1), C/D, G/D, D(2) (x2)

[Verse 1]
Dadd9        
You left Billy with the kid
     D9                                  G6     Em7
And all the selfless things you did with Billy
  Dadd9                
You left your home town in the spring
     D9                            G6   Em7
And turned your back on everything

[Pre-Chorus 1]
    C              
You thought your life would just go by
    G/B                              A7sus   A7
Without a pause to wonder, don't be silly

[Chorus]
D(1)      C/D            G/D         D(2)
You can't live your life in the baby seat
D(1)          C/D
You've got to stand on your own
G/D            D(2)
Don't admit defeat

[Verse 2]
He came down from his retreat
She saw him later on the street
He said "You are the only one
to recognize that I'm the son"

[Pre-Chorus 2]
So she bent down and kissed his feet
And then that night, between the sheets she told him

[Chorus]
You can't live your life in the baby seat
You've got to stand on your own
Don't admit defeat
D(1)       C/D           G/D          D(2)
You can't live your life in the baby seat
D(1)     C/D  G/D      D
Aaahhhhhhh,   aaahhhhhhh

[Bridge]
A2           Esus
40 days at sea
Bm        A         G       D(2)
Then she turned and said to me
A2              Em
"If we make it back
Bm    A        G        A
I'll renounce Jack Kerouac
    Bm      A     G      A
And all of that romantic crap
    Bm      A      G          A      A2
Like I'm an artist don't look back"

[Verse 3]
Now we're living somewhere else
We keep opinions to ourselves
But still we seek a sneaky peek at heaven
When the working week defeats us

[Pre-Chorus 3]
If you think growing up is tough
Then you've just not grown enough, baby

[Chorus] (x2)
You can't live your life in the baby seat
You've got to stand on your own
Don't admit defeat
You can't live your life in the baby seat
Aaahhhhhhh, aaahhhhhhh
You can't live your life in the baby seat
Aaahhhhhhh, aaahhhhhhh

[Coda]
G/D, D(2)

[End on D(2)]
