Sweet Baby James Chords
Title:				SWEET BABY JAMES		(James Taylor)
								   1970

		G F# E A+ A

		      D             A      G            F#m
		There is a young cowboy he lives on the range.
		    Bm            G              D       F#m
		His horse and his cattle are his only companion.
		    Bm          G             D             F#m
		He works in the saddle and he sleeps in the canyon.
		G           D           A           Em      A
		Waiting for summer, his pastures to change.
		    G                    A           D
		And as the moon rises he sits by his fire.
		Bm             G         D          A
		Thinkin' about women and glasses of beer.
		G                       A         D
		Closing his eyes as the doggies retire
		   Bm          G             D
		He sings out a song which is soft but it's clear
		   Bm       E             A
		As if maybe someone could hear.

			D             G         A  D
		CHORUS:	Goodnight you moonlight ladies.
			Bm         G          D
			Rock-a-bye sweet baby James.
			Bm              G             D
			Deep greens and blues are the colors I choose.
			          Bm        E          A+     A
			Won't you let me go down in my dreams.
			    G          A          D
			And rock-a-bye sweet baby James.

		        D          A          G            F#m
		Now the first of December was covered with snow.
		    Bm         G             D             F#m
		And so was the turnpike from Stockridge to Boston.
		         Bm                G             D              F#m
		Lord the Berkshires seemed dreamlike on account of that frosting.
		     G		 D           A            Em          A
		With ten miles behind me and ten thousand more to go.
		          G                             A           D
		There's a song that they sing when they take to the highway.
		  Bm             G              D           A
		A song that they sing when they take to the sea.
		  G                              A           D
		A song that they sing of they're home in the sky.
		      Bm        G              D
		Maybe you can believe it if it helps you to sleep.
		    Bm            E             A+    A
		But singing works just fine for me.


		CHORUS

About the artist behind Sweet Baby James Chords:

James Vernon Taylor (born March 12, 1948) is an American singer-songwriter and guitarist, born in Boston, Massachusetts and raised in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.[1]

Taylor's career began in the mid-1960s, but he found his audience in the early 1970s, singing sensitive and gentle acoustic songs. He was part of a wave of singer-songwriters of the time that also included Joni Mitchell, Tom Rush, Cat Stevens, Carole King, John Denver, Jim Croce, Don McLean, and Jackson Browne, as well as Carly Simon, whom Taylor later married.

His 1976 album Greatest Hits was certified diamond and has sold more than 11 million copies. He has retained a large audience well into the 1990s and early 2000s, when some of his best-selling and most-awarded albums were released.
