CAPO: 1st FRET

INTRO:
C  G  Em

VERSE:
D               C
 She works the nights,
        G
By the water
              Em            D
She's gone astray, so far away
                   C
From her father's daughter
 G                Em  D
She just wants a life
         C
For her baby
 G         Em
All on her own,
             D
No one will come
              C       G
She's got to save him


PRE-CHORUS:
                Em
She tells him, "Ooh, love,
D                         C
No one's ever gonna hurt you, love
 G                        Em
I'm gonna give you all of my love
 D                   C   G
Nobody matters like you"

                 Em
She tells him, "Your life
 D                         C
ain't gon' be nothing like my life
 G                            Em
You're gonna grow and have a good life
 D                      C     G
I'm gonna do what I've got to do"


CHORUS:
     Em       D
So, Rockabye baby,
      C
Rockabye
 G
I'm gonna rock you

 Em       D
Rockabye baby,
           C
Don't you cry
 G
Somebody's got you

     Em       D
So, Rockabye baby,
      C
Rockabye
 G
I'm gonna rock you

 Em       D
Rockabye baby,
           C  G
Don't you cry


VERSE:
 Em               D
And no mama, you never shed tear
        C                       G
'Cause you have to set things year after year
Em                       D
You give the youth love beyond compare
 C                       G
You find the school fee and the bus fare
Em               D
Mmm, more, when pops disappear
C                       G
In the wrong bar can't find him nowhere


BREAK:
Em                      D
Now she got a six year old
           C
Trying to keep him warm
 G                      Em
Trying to keep out the cold
          D
When he looks in her eyes
C                    G
He don't know he is safe

When she says


PRE-CHORUS:
 Em
"Ooh, love,
D                         C
No one's ever gonna hurt you, love
 G                        Em
I'm gonna give you all of my love
 D                   C   G
Nobody matters like yoooooou"


CHORUS:
     Em       D

 G
I'm gonna rock you

 Em       D

           C
Don't you cry
 G
Somebody's got you

 Em       D
Rockabye baby,
      C
Rockabye
 G
I'm gonna rock you

 Em       D
