James Taylor – Sweet Baby James chords
CAPO 1C G F EmThere is a young cowboy, he lives on the range,Am F C EmHis horse and his cattle are his only companions,Am F C EmHe works in the saddle and he sleeps in the canyons,F C G Dm GWaiting for summer, his pastures to change.F G CAnd as the moon rises he sits by his fire,Am F C GThinking about women and glasses of beer,F G CAnd closing his eyes as the doggies retire,Am F C GHe sings out a song which is soft but it's clear,D G As if maybe someone could hear.Chorus:C F G CHe says goodnight you moonlight ladies,Am F CRock-a-bye sweet baby James,Am F CDeep greens and blues are the colors I choose,D G Won't you let me go down in my dreams ,F G CAnd rock-a-by sweet baby James.Well the first of December was covered with snow, And so was the turnpike from Stockbridge to Boston, The Birkshires seemed dream-like on account of that frostin', With ten miles behind me and ten thousand more to go . There's a song that they sing when they take to the ighway, A song that they sing when they take to the sea, A song that they sing of their home in the sky, Maybe you can believe it, if it helps you to sleep, But singing works just fine for me. Chorus. He says goodnight you moonlight ladies, Rock-a-bye sweet baby James, Deep greens and blues are the colors I choose, Won't you let me go down in my dreams , And rock-a-by sweet baby James.
