Intro Eb fingerpicking 

Bb                            Eb               Bb
Bobby pleaded guilty to the charges that they read
         Bb                            Eb          Cm         F
As they led him from the courtroom, a young voice turned his head
    Eb                               Gm             Eb
A little boy, dressed in blue, was standing at the rail
        Cm                                       F
He said "I hope they kill you. I hope you go to hell."
Bb                                Eb         Bb
They locked Bobby in a jail with forty other men
          Bb                                   Eb      Cm      F
They all knew what he had done, and they were glad to take him in
        Eb                              Gm            Eb
They'd all seen in the headlines about Bobby and his wife
Cm                                              F
How they loved each other, and how he took her life
Gm                     Eb
Day after day, he sat alone
Cm                                       F
Night after night, they'd hear him sing song (he'd sing)

CHORUS:
Bb               Eb                Cm            Bb
Baby, I'll take care of you, I'll never let you down
Bb                 Eb         Cm               F
No harm will ever come to you as long as I'm around
Gm         Eb                         Gm
I am not afraid of what people say or do
Cm                             Eb        F     Bb   Eb Bb Eb
The only thing I fear is being here... without you.


Bb                                  Eb         Bb
The little boy dressed in blue grew up to be a man
Bb               Eb              Cm         F
When he fell in love himelf, he came to understand
Eb                             Gm              Eb
How it was the Bobby took the life they both adored
        Cm                                     F
Cause Bobby couldn't stand to see her suffer anymore
Bb                                Eb               Bb
He took out the papers from the trunk beneath his bed
    Bb                    Eb             Cm                 F
And all the years just disappeared as through his tears he read
      Eb                          Gm                Eb
The stories of the accident that robbed his mama's mind
Cm                                                         F 
And the man who held her in his arms and chose to cut the line
Gm                                   Eb
and the one about the man who sits alone
Cm                           F
Year after year, singin his song        go to chorus


      Bb                             Eb                 Bb
The young man drove his car up, and parked outside the gate
     Bb            Eb                  Cm                F
They led him to a cold grey room, the guard told him to wait

Eb                                   Gm                Eb
When the guard brought Bobby in the young man finally knew
Cm                                                   F
He still missed his mama, but he'd missed his daddy too
Gm                                        Eb
And when the guard left the two of them alone
Cm                                                     F
He took Bobby in his arms, and the young man sang his song

Bb                Eb                Cm            Bb
Daddy, I'll take care of you, I'll never let you down
Bb                 Eb             Cm           F
No harm will ever come to you as long as I'm around
Gm                 Eb                             Gm
You have taught me not to fear what people say or do
Cm                                 Eb      F     Bb  Eb Bb
The only thing that hurts is being here..without you.
