Ernest Tubb Lyrics


            

FILIPINO BABY
Recorded by Ernest Tubb
Writers: Billy Cox and Clarke Van Ness

[C] When the warships left Ma-[C7] nil-a
Sailing [F] proudly o'er the sea,
All the [C] sailor's hearts were [D] filled with fond re-[G7] gret
Looking [C] backward to this is-[C7] land
Where they [F] spent such happy hours
Making [G7] love to every pretty girl they [C] met.

When up stepped a little sailor with his bright eyes all aglow
Sayin, "Take a look at my gal's photograph"
Then the sailors gathered round him just look upon her face
And he said, "I love my Filipino Baby."

CHORUS
[C] She's my Filipino [C7] baby
She's my [F] treasure and my pet
Her [C] teeth are bright and pearly
And her [D] hair is black as [G7] jet
Oh, her [C] lips are sweet as [C7] honey
And her [F] heart is true I know
She's my [G7] darlin' little Filipino [C] Baby. In a little rustic cottage in the far off Philippines Dwells a pretty little maiden all alone She is thinking of her true love, though he's far across the sea And her heart beats true for him and him alone. Then one day he whispered, "Darlin' I've come back from Caroline I've come back to claim the only girl I love Then that night there was a wedding while the ship's crew gathered 'round And he wed his little Filipino Baby.
