verse

A5- 577XXX
G5- 355XXX
F5- 133XXX

There's no easy answer
None to blame or forgive
Two cripples dancing
To the end we live
A5      
I'm not with you not of you
G5                       F5
Not with you, not of you

You are soft and young to me
I am the ghost who comes and goes
And I hope I'll catch you
A5
In the throws of one last look at the wonder
G5                     F5
One last look at the wonder


Chorus

Oh, God, I love you
And all the past we once knew
Some other love becomes you
Whatever else we come to
I know we could be so happy, baby
If we wanted to be

Chorus 

      Em    Bm   Em   Bm    C    G   E7

A|-----7-----9----7---9-----10---9----5------------------------------------|
E|-----------7--------7-----8---------4------------------------------------|


And so on for the rest of the song


You are soft and young to me
I am the ghost who comes and goes
I'm hoping that I'll catch you in the throws
Of one last look at joy that we've become

But there's no easy answer, none to blame or forgive
We were two cripples dancing
To the bitter end we live
I'm not with you, but of you
I'm not with you but of you

O, God, I loved you
And all the past we once knew
Some other love becomes you
Whatever else it comes to
I know we could be so happy, baby
If we wanted to be

We had a birthplace in common
We had separate beds and lives

I'll just sit here and glow
Break out the oldest pictures
Hand your ruined letters out to dry
We had a birthplace in common
And separate beds and lives
And lives, and lives
I know that we could be so happy, baby
If we wanted to be
I know that we could be so happy, baby


Thats the best i can make of it, feel free to improve it or anything. I would
have liked to hear the finished version of this song instead of the rough one
on "My Sweetheart The Drunk" but what can you do.

About the artist behind We Could Be So Happy Baby Tab:

Jeffrey Scott Buckley (November 17, 1966 – May 29, 1997), raised as Scotty Moorhead,[1] was an American singer-songwriter and guitarist. He was the son of Tim Buckley, also a musician. Buckley gained popularity in the early 1990s by playing cover versions at venues in Manhattan's East Village, such as Sin-é, and he gradually focused more on his own material. After much interest from record labels he signed with Columbia and, after recruiting a band, recorded his debut studio album, Grace.

Over the following two years, the band toured widely to promote the album, including concerts in the U.S., Europe, Japan and Australia. In 1997, he stopped touring and moved to Memphis, Tennessee, to experiment with new material for a second album. During his time there, he recorded many four-track demos and completed his third recording session for his new album with his band, with Tom Verlaine as producer. While awaiting the arrival of his band from New York, he drowned during an evening swim in the Wolf River. His body was found on June 4, 1997.[2]

Since his death, there have been many posthumous releases of his material, including a collection of four-track demos and studio recordings for his unfinished second album My Sweetheart the Drunk and expansions of debut album Grace and his Live at Sin-é EP. Buckley's first #1 came posthumously in March 2008 when "Hallelujah" topped Billboard's Hot Digital Songs following a performance of the song on American Idol. Buckley and his work continue to remain popular and regularly featured in 'greatest' lists in the music press.[3][4]
