Pat Green - Baby Doll
CD: Lucky Ones
Written By: Pat Green & Rob Thomas
Tabbed By: Jason Marbach (please email all questions to smoothie7745 at hotmail.com

**Note: don't be fooled during the chorus at the line "close your eyes", that 
minor you hear is the bass playing a minor note to start the progression, and 
in other places in the  song, the bass will alternately play an "A" and a "D" 
note in transition from Dsus back to G (esp. in the verses), but the chords 
stay as I wrote it here...it's excellent musicianship (by Pat and his boys on 
the album), but the rhythm chords are as listed.

You'll almost definitely have to listen to the song to understand the tab...it's 
easy, but complex...if that makes any sense...

G                    G   -  Dsus
She stops and checks her reflection
         Dsus    -     G        G-Dsus  Dsus-G
In a car parked on the corner
                     G-Dsus        
She said "It's hell on me, 
                  Dsus - G
This working down at the diner."

Verse 2:
Some people say, man, she was hot
Back when she was younger
Yeah, well she was a dancer
When she lived in L.A.

Chorus 1:
Am            D          G
  She was someone's baby doll
         Cadd9    Cadd9/B   A/G
A beauty queen to someone long ago, 
         D
From the midnight show, and if you
G          Dsus      Dsus        D                                  
Close your eyes, you hear the music playing
        G      Dsus     Dsus        D
You can see her dancing underneath the spotlight, and
G          Dsus        Dsus                D
  When she sleeps, she dreams she's back in Hollywood
Am
Back when all the world was young,
    D                      G (start of intro)
And she was someone's baby doll


Repeat Intro


Verse 3:
She stops and checks her reflection 
In the bathroom on her lunch break
She says I still look good for
Someone half of my real age

Verse 4:
Some people say "Man, I bet she
Still makes love like an earthquake."
Yeah, but man, she ain't easy
She ain't lettin' you in, my friend, my friend

Chorus 2:
Am             D             G
  It's time to wake up, Baby Doll
         Cadd9    Cadd9/B   Dsus
Put your best dress and your high heels on
         D
And dream you're gone, and when you
G          Dsus      Dsus        D                                  
Close your eyes, you hear the music playing
        G      Dsus     Dsus        D
You can see her dancing underneath the spotlight, and
G          Dsus        Dsus                D
  When she sleeps, she dreams she's back in Hollywood
Am
Back when all the world was young,
    D                      F (start of instrumental)
And she was someone's baby doll

Instrumental:  F  C  Am G
               F  C  D

Verse 5:
She stops and calls an old friend
From the payphone at the subway
She says "I feel like I'm just sitting here
Wasting my days away."

Chorus 3:
Am           D             G
It's time to move on, Baby Doll
         Cadd9      Cadd9/B  Dsus
And walk away just like you did before
         D
When you wanted more, and when you
G          Dsus      Dsus        D                                  
Close your eyes, you hear the music playing
        G      Dsus     Dsus        D
You can see her dancing underneath the spotlight, and
G          Dsus        Dsus                D
  When she sleeps, she dreams she's back in Hollywood
Am
When she was a younger girl
  D
A pretty heart in a tainted world
Am
Not sure who you wanna be
     D
Your Daddy's little drama queen
  Am
I hope that when you find yourself,
       D
You're more than just a baby doll

Outro: G  G-Dsus  D
       G  G-Cadd9

-twest1219 | 10/5/2004
my pleasure, glad you enjoy ;D

I love this song too, at first I was a little
"eh..." on it, but it grew on me real fast. I
love it now...great stuff.
-Smoothie7745 | 10/7/2004
can someone please tab those chords please, we beginners dont understand :P
-Koochiesmoocher | 10/24/2004
nevermind, i didnt see them at the top

-Koochiesmoocher | 10/24/2004
hey. good tab but im positive there is an a minor (am) in there.
-syzygyassociate | 10/26/2004
Thanks for the feedback!

Do you mean an Am outside of the ones I have in
there already...?
-Smoothie7745 | 10/27/2004
This song was written by Pat and Rob Thomas. Isn't that the Matchbox 20 guy?
-amarillobound | 11/16/2004
yep, he's the lead singer for Matchbox 20,
although he appears to be doing a lot more
writing for other people these days. He
wrote/co-wrote a couple songs for Willie
Nelson's album, "The Great Divide", plus a
couple others, I believe. Great songwriter, I
love his work. And of course, Pat speaks for
himself...
-Smoothie7745 | 11/17/2004
I think the chorus should be G -- am7 instead of G -- Dsus4. However, Dsus4 works too (the note Pat hits is in both chords). I believe he plays an Am7 live.

The main lines of the chorus sound like:
G-D-Am-C to me . . .
-jpranger19 | 1/11/2005
Thanks, I appreciate it, I'll check in to how he plays it live...

I do know that there's no minor in that spot on the album, but I haven't seen him play this song live yet, so I couldn't say about live...I appreciate the heads up, I'll look into it.
-Smoothie7745 | 1/11/2005
I see that yall are interested in this song. THey just shot the Video for it about a month ago in Coupland Texas. I was there and its going to be AWESOME!
-fender_man2k2 | 6/13/2005
Awesome dude, thanks for letting us know! :)
-Smoothie7745 | 6/13/2005
rob thomas as in matchbox20? good tab
-peaceallover | 6/24/2005
Thanks, and yes, Rob Thomas from Matchbox 20
-Smoothie7745 | 6/27/2005
great tab man perfect job
-yeahright35 | 7/12/2005
Hey yall. As far as i can tell this isnt how he plays it. I seen him live and he wasnt using a capo and main chords he was using were E major and C major. not bashing in any way, just lettin ya know.
-fender_man2k2 | 1/26/2006
Thanks for the input...I appreciate you doing it respectfully. I'm going to have to disagree with equal respect...on the album at least, this is how the song is played. I've only seen him play it live once, and I couldn't tell from where I was what chords he was playing...but I know it was in the same key as the album version.
