** "Songbook" Songbook.SweetBabyJames -> Songbook.FullName ontrail

By: James Taylor, 1969[1]


3/4
G F# E A+ A
D A G F#m F#m
There is a young cowboy he lives on the range
Bm G D F#m F#m
His horse and his cattle are his only companions
F#m G D F#m
He works in the saddle and he sleeps in the canyon
G D A Em A A
Waiting for summer, his pastures to change
 
G G A D
And as the moon rises he sits by his fire
Bm G D A
Thinking about women and glasses of beer
G G A D
Closing his eyes as the doggies retire
Bm G D D
He sings out a song which is soft but it's clear
Bm E A A A A
As if maybe someone could hear
 
Chorus
D G A D
Goodnight you moonlight ladies
Bm G D D
Rock-a-bye sweet baby James
Bm G D D
Deep greens and blues are the colours I choose
Bm E A+ A
Won't you let me go down in my dreams
G A D D
And rock-a-bye sweet baby James
 
D A G F#m F#m
Now the first of December was covered with snow
Bm G D F#m F#m
And so was the turnpike from Stockridge to Boston
Bm G D F#m
Lord the Berkshires seemed dreamlike on account of that frosting
G D A Em A A
With ten miles behind me and ten thousand more to go
 
G 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 G A D
A song that they sing of their home in the sky
Bm G D D
Maybe you can believe it if it helps you to sleep
Bm E A+ A A A
But singing works just fine for me
 
Chorus
F# 244322 F#m 244222 Bm7 224232 A+ x03323
