WHY BABY WHY Writer/s Darrell Edwards - George Jones
Key of G Recorded by George Jones, 1955
(G) Tell me (C) why baby, why baby, why baby why,
You make me (G) cry baby, cry baby, (D7) cry baby (G). (G7)
I (C) can't help but love you 'til the day that I die,
So tell me, (G) why baby, why baby, (D7) why baby (G) why.
(G) well I got a crow I wan'na pick with (D7) you,
Just (C) like last time when the (G) feathers flew,
You're runnin' wild a-kickin' up your (D7) heels,
A- (C) -leavin' me home with a (D7) hand full of (G) bills.
I can't live without you and you know it's (D7) true,
But (C) there's no livin' with you so (G) what'll I do,
I'm goin' honky tonkin', get as tight as I (D7) can,
And (C) maybe by then you'll 'pre-ci- (D7) -ate a good (G) man. (G7)
Tell me (C) why baby, why baby, why baby why,
You make me (G) cry baby, cry baby, (D7) cry baby (G) cry. (G7)
I (C) can't live without you 'til the day that I die,
So tell me (G) why baby, why baby, (D7) why baby (G) why.
Well I don't know, but I've heard (D7) say,
(C) Ever' little dog is gonna (G) have his day,
You'd better pay attention, don't you dare for - (D7) -get,
'Cause I'm (C) certainly not a little (D7) puppy (G) yet.
I caught you honky tonkin' with my best (D7)friend,
The (C) thing to do was leave you, but I (G) should'a left then,
Now I'm too old to leave you, but I still get (D7) sore,
When you (C)come home a'feelin' for the (D7)knob on the (G)door. (G7)
