When you see my baby sister, be as kind as you can

Break it to my grandma, said that boy?s wild and bad  
Bm  
Break it to them gently when you tell ?em  
E A  
That I won?t be coming home again

A F#m  
When you see my lady with the twinkle in her eyes

Tell it to her softly and hold her if she cries  
A F#m  
Tell her that I love her and I will till the day I die  
Bm  
Tell it to her gently when you tell her  
E A  
That I won?t be coming home again  
 
E A  
I got in too deep with strangers  
E A  
Thinkin? they could help me find my way  
D A  
Nobody warned me of the dangers  
F#m Bm E  
And it?s always the young and foolish that have to pay  
 
A F#m  
So break it to them gently when you tell my mom and dad  
Bm Esus4 E  
Thank them for the good years and all the lovin? that I had

Break it to my grandma who said the boy is wild and bad  
Bm  
Break it to them gently when you tell them  
E A  
That I won?t be coming home again  
 
D A  
I?m runnin? with a gun and it isn?t any fun as a fugitive  
D A  
Fightin? for my life and I don?t know if I?ll make it alone  
D A  
Runnin? with a gun and it isn?t any fun as a fugitive  
F#m A  
Lord I wanna go home, lord I wanna go home  
 
D  
You gotta break it to them gently  
A  
Break it to them gently  
D  
You gotta break it to them gently  
A  
Gotta really try to roll ?em  
D  
You gotta break it to them gently  
A  
Gotta really try to sooth them  
D  
Gotta really try to sooth them  
A  
Gotta really try to roll them  
D  
You gotta roll it to my mother  
A  
Gotta roll it to my grandma, gotta roll the old lady  
D  
Roll it to my mother  
A  
Roll it to my mother and roll the old lady

Roll it to my grandma  
A  
She?s damn near eighty, roll the old lady  
D  
Roll it to my mother  
A  
Roll it to my mother, gotta roll the old lady  
D  
Roll it to my mother  
A  
My sister and my mother and roll the old lady  
D  
Roll it to my grandma  
A  
She?s damn near eighty, roll the old lady...
