My first tab...I'm sure it is not exactly like the original song, but I mainly made this for ease if you are a new player just starting. If you don't have a Capo you can play it without one, it just sounds a little different. Capo on 2nd fret sounds best to me. Verse 1 C G D E He didn't have to stay up. He'd been up all night. C G D E Lyin' there in bed and listenin' to his new born baby cry. C G D E He makes a pot of coffee and splashes water on his face. C G D G His wife gives him a kiss and says, "it's gonna be ok." Chorus C D G It won't be like this for long. C D G D Someday we'll look back laughin' at the week we brought her home. C D G E This phase is gonna fly by, so baby just hold on. C D G 'Cause it won't be like this for long. Verse 2 C G D E Four years later 'bout four thirty she's crawlin' in their bed. C G D E And when he drops her off at preschool she's clingin' to his leg. C G D E The teacher peels her off of him. He says, "What can I do?" C G D G She says, "Now don't ya worry. This will only last a week or two." Chorus C D G It won't be like this for long. C D G D One day soon you'll drop her off and she won't even know you're gone. C D G E This phase is gonna fly by, if you can just hold on. C D G It won't be like this for long. Bridge C D G D Someday soon she'll be a teenager and at times he'll think she hates him. C G D Then he'll walk her down the aisle and raise her veil. C D G D But right now she's up and cryin' and the truth is that he don't mind. C G D As he kisses her goodnight and she says her prayers. Verse 3 C G D E He lays down there beside her 'til her eyes are finally closed. C G D E And just watchin' her it breaks his heart 'cause he already knows. Chorus C D G It won't be like this for long. C D G D One day soon that little girl is gonna be all grown up and gone. C D G E Yeah, this phase is gonna fly by, so he's tryin' to hold on. C D E 'Cause it won't be like this for long. C D G It won't be like this for long. That is the easiest and more accurate way to play the song in my opinion. Let me know what you think.
