You Are Your Mothers Child

Capo on 2nd fret
	  		 
 

Intro: G   B7   C   G   C   G   Am D 

verse 1: 
    G                    B7 
I remember the day you appeared on this earth 

     C                        G 
With eyes like the ocean, got blood on my shirt 

     C                                 G 
From my camera angle it looked like it hurt 

         Am                 D 
But your mama had a big old smile 

G                           B7 
We drove you home, saw your yellowing skin 

C                             G 
Packed a few things and drove you back again 

C                          G    
Stayed up all night worrying, wondering 

Am                     D 
What was gonna make it better 

Pre-Chorus 
   Am7                     D 
Broken bones heal when you set them right 

         G          G/F#          Em 
Get your fine tooth comb from the barbicide 

    C                   D 
Our love's a protective poison 

Chorus: 
     C            C/B      Am 
Well you are your mother's child 

    G                G/F# Em 
And she'll keep you for a while 

    C                           D                      G/C/ G/C/ G/C/ G C G    
But someday you'll be grown and then you'll be on your own 

verse 2: 

G                  B7 
Halloween costume, looking real cute 

          C                        G 
With your pillowcase full, in your astronaut suit 

         C                    G 
But your cousin the cowboy is eyeing your loot 

Am                D 
Better watch your Snickers bar 

G                       B7 
Out on the diamond, now you're up to bat 

C                          G 
Chewing your big league, adjusting your hat 

C                  G 
Taking a swing and hearing it crack 

Am                 D 
Look at that apple fly 

Pre-Chorus 

Am7                   D 
Tears will dry if you give them time 

         G      G/F#               Em        
Life's a roller coaster, keep your arms inside 

Am                 D 
Fear that's a big emotion 

Chorus: 

     C              C/B    Am 
Well you are your mother's child 

    G                 G/F# Em 
And she'll keep you for a while 

        C                       D                      G/C/ G/C/ G/C/ G C G 
But one day you'll be grown and then you'll be on your own 

verse 3: 

G                    B7 
Posing for pictures, cap and a gown 

C                        G 
Summer is coming, you're driving around town 

C                             G 
Everyone's asking what you're gonna do now 

  Am                       D 
I know you're gonna make a splash 

    G                        B7 
And find you a sweetheart to treat you so kind 

C                        G 
Invite her to dinner and kiss her goodnight 

     C                              G 
What I couldn't teach you, you will soon realize 

Am                        D 
She's the only thing that matters 

Pre-Chorus 

Am7                                D 
Although he's a bastard, make your papa proud 

       G          G/F#      Em 
Your a fine young man and I got no doubt 

     Am                   D 
That you're gonna do this better 

Chorus: 

      C              C/B    Am 
Cause you are your mother's child 

G            G/F# Em 
She had you for a while 

    C                             D                    G G/F# Em          
But now that you're grown, you're making it on your own 

     C                              D                    G C G C
Well now that you're grown, may you never feel this alone
