Intro Chords:
G  D  D/C#  Bm  Bm/A   G  A  D



D                   F#m/D
I never once backed down from a punch
      D7                        G
Well, I'd take it square on the chin
     Gm                  D       D/C# Bm
Well I found out fast, a bully’s just that
    Em                        A  
And you’ve got to stand up to him
   D                   F#m/D
So I didn't cry when I got a black eye
   D7                    G
As bad as it hurt I just grinned
         Gm                     D     D/C#  Bm     Bm/A  
But when tough little boys grow up to  be   Dads
          G        A      D
They turn into big babies again
Bm                          G
Scared me to death when you took your first steps
         D         A             D      D/C#
Well I'd fall everytime you fell down
         Bm                     G            D/F#
And your first day of school, I cried like a fool
      Em                          A
And I followed your school bus to town


Chorus:
     D                 F#m/D
Well I didn't cry when old Yeller died 
   D7                       G
At least not in front of my friends
         Gm                     D     D/C#  Bm    Bm/A
But when tough little boys grow up to  be   Dads
          G        A       G
They turn into big babies again

D  D/C#  Bm  Bm/A   G  A  D

 
     D                      F#m/D
Well I'm a grown man but as strong as I am
     D7                        G
Well sometimes it's hard to believe
    Gm                   D      D/C#   Bm 
How one little girl with little blonde curls
    Em              A
Can totally terrify me 
   D                   F#m/D
If you were to ask, my wife would just laugh
      D7                   G 
She'd say I know all about men
    Gm                     D     D/C#  Bm    Bm/A  
How tough little boys grow up to  be   Dads
          G        A      D
They turn into big babies again
     Bm                  G
Well I know one day I'll give you away 
    D            A               D 
And I'm gonna to stand there and smile
    Bm                  G        G/F#
But when I get home and I'm all alone
     Em                         A
Then I'll sit in your room for awhile


Chorus:
     D                 F#m/D
Well I didn't cry when old Yeller died 
   D7                       G
At least not in front of my friends
         Gm                     D     D/C#  Bm    Bm/A  
But when tough little boys grow up to  be   Dads
          G        A      D
They turn into big babies again


     Gm                     D     D/C#  Bm  
When tough little boys grow up to  be   Dads
          G        A       D      
They turn into big babies again

G  D  D/C#  Bm  Bm/A   G  A  D

gm/d sounds better with the 3 being on the 2nd fret instead of the third

-ldwhitehead25 | 7/15/2003
That was my bad...I play it xx0222 but typed it wrong
I fixed it in the tab...thanks!
-lmofle | 7/18/2003
Great tab.
-Strummer | 8/5/2003
That chord is a Dmaj7
-rt@countrytabs | 9/12/2003
Great Tab! small correction on verse
Gm D D/C# Bm/A
but when tough little boys grow up to be dads
(Em) A D
the turn into big babies again.



and the cord you have listed as an Gm/D is an (A6) I believe,
or some form of A

the tab is correct xx0222 just not the name.but great
tab nevertheless. just trying to help:)
-lightningboy | 9/23/2003
The chord is like rt said a Dmaj7, or if
you'd like, F#m/D. Anyhow the most common
name is Dmaj7..

-rune | 10/4/2003
I'm going with the F#m/D...I originally had
the chord shape as a Gm/D even though I was
playing the F#m/D...silly me...either way,
that's why I put chord shapes on the odd chords.

-lmofle | 10/4/2003
This sounds absolutely PERFECT.
-petunia | 10/16/2003
I'm new at playing the guitar and i was just wondering the strum pattern
-winner | 1/27/2004
