Somebodys Baby
I actually tune the low E sting a half'step UP (to F) but I don't know how to put that in the 
options. I also like to put the capo on 2. You can put the capo wherever you need for your vocal 
range! The tempo is a bit strange, so listen to the song for timing.

Tuning: F A D G B e

She yells, "If you were homeless, sure as hell you'd be drunk, 
Or high or trying to get there, or begging for junk.
When the people don't want you they just throw you money for beer."

Her name was November, she went by Autumn or Fall.
It was 7 long years since the Autumn when all of her 
Nightmares grew fingers and all of her dreams grew a tear

[2nd Verse is the same as 1st]

She screams, "Well if you've never gone it alone, well then 
Go ahead you better throw the first stone. You got 
One lonely stoner, waiting to bring to her knees."

She dreams about heaven, remembering hell as the 
Nightmare she visits and knows all too well. Every 
Now and again, when she's sober, she brushes her teeth.

Or just play the chorus.

(I think the bridge can be just once or twice since you will probably be playing an acoustic version, 
but you can play it as many times as you want.)

Today was her birthday, strangely enough, when the cops found her body at the foot of a bluff.
The anonymous caller this morning tipped off the police
They got her ID from her dental remains. The same fillings intact, the same nicotine stains.
The birth and the death were both over with no one to grieve.

End on C, but if you want to make it more sad (if necessary!), mute the high E string.

This is how I play the song. It's not exactly like the original (I can't play cello and guitar at the 
same time!!) but I think it's alright. Good luck an God bless!!

About the artist behind Somebodys Baby:

Jonathan Mark Foreman (born October 22, 1976) is the lead singer, guitarist, and co-founder of the alternative rock band Switchfoot. He started Switchfoot in 1996 with drummer Chad Butler and his brother Tim on bass. He writes or co-writes the music for all of Switchfoot's songs.

Foreman was born in San Bernardino County, California, but his family then moved to Massachusetts and Virginia Beach during his childhood. After moving to Encinitas in North County San Diego in his junior high years, he went to Torrey Pines High School in Carmel Valley, California, and he became fast friends with Todd Cooper who encouraged him to learn guitar. [1] Cooper was later a guitar tech for Switchfoot, eventually leaving in 2005 to pursue his own musical career. Foreman attended UC San Diego and later dropped out to follow his singing career.
