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"

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
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
Rockabye baby,
C
Rockabye
G
I'm gonna rock you
Em       D
Rockabye baby,
C  G
Don't you cry
