                                Darius Rucker - It Won't Be Like This For Long
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is a great tune off of Darius Rucker's debut country album. With a two
year old son and a daughter on the way, I find this song to be both
poignant and achingly apt. I wanted to learn to play it and so I finally
sat down to sort it out. This version is in the original key and is
accurate with regard to both the original recording as well as any number 
with any corrections or comments!

Tuning: Standard (EADGBe)

Intro (0:00 - 0:13)

Guitar 1 (Acoustic) Plays Riff 1  1x

Verse 1 (0:14 - 0:39)

   A              E          B
He didn't have to wake up
                 E 
He'd been up all night
      A             E
Lyin' there in bed listenin'
       B             C#m     B
To his new born baby cry
   A              E
He makes a pot of coffee
           B             C#m
He splashes water on his face
    A                E
His wife gives him a kiss and says
          B     E
It's gonna be okay


Chorus 1 (0:40 - 1:03)

then off again when you strum the chord.

It won't be like this for long
    A                   B
One day we'll look back laughin'
       G#m                 C#m    B 
At the week we brought her home
     A                  E        B     
This phase is gonna fly by  
         C        C#m    B       A
So baby just hold on
         B                  *Interlude begins
It won't be like this for long


Interlude (1:04 - 1:09)

Guitar 1 plays the second half of Riff 1  1x



Verse 2 (1:10 - 1:36)

           A                E
Four years later 'bout four-thirty 
     B                  E
She's crawlin' in their bed
            A                E  
And when he drops her off at preschool
     B                C#m    B
She's clinging to his leg
    A                 E  
The teacher peels her off of him
   B                 C#m
He says, "What can I do?"
    A                    E
She says, "Now don't you worry,
             B              E
This'll only last a week or two."


Chorus 2 (1:37 - 2:03)

         A       B        E    E*
It won't be like this for long
        A                     B
One day soon you'll drop her off
              G#m              C#m    B 
And she won't even know you're gone
     A                  E        B     
This phase is gonna fly by  
           C         C#m    B       A
If you can just hold on

Bridge (2:04 - 2:30)

(E)      F#m                 
Some day soon she'll be a teenager
       G#m
And at times he'll think she hates him
           A                        G#m  
Then he'll walk her down the aisle
              B     C        
And raise her veil
          C#m         
But right now she's up and cryin'
        B
And the truth is that he don't mind
      A                     E/G#
As he kisses her good night
                 B
And she says her prayers



Verse 3 (2:31 - 2:42)

*NOTE: Strum each chord once for the entirety of the verse

   A                 E
He lays down there beside her
         B                C#m
'Til her eyes are finally closed
         A               E
And just watchin' her it breaks his heart
       B
'Cause he already knows



Chorus 3 (2:43 - 3:13)
 
         A       B        E    E*
It won't be like this for long
        A                        B      
One day soon that little girl is gonna be
G#m              C#m    B
All grown up and gone
           A                  E        
Yeah, this phase is gonna fly by
   B       C    C#m    B    A
So, he's tryin' to hold on
                B                C#m       B 
'Cause it won't be like this for long
         A                B
It won't be like this for long

Darius Ruck - It Won't Be Like This For Long 

He didn't have to wake up
He'd been up all night
Lyin' there in bed listenin'
To his new born baby cry
He makes a pot of coffee
He splashes water on his face
His wife gives him a kiss and says
It's gonna be okay
 
It won't be like this for long
One day we'll look back laughin'
At the week we brought her home
This phase is gonna fly by
So baby just hold on
It won't be like this for long
 
Four years later 'bout four-thirty
She's crawlin' in their bed
And when he drops her off at preschool
She's clinging to his leg
The teacher peels her off of him
He says, "What can I do?"
She says, "Now don't you worry,
This'll only last a week or two."
 
It won't be like this for long
One day soon you'll drop her off
And she won't even know you're gone
This phase is gonna fly by
If you can just hold on
It won't be like this for long
 
Some day soon she'll be a teenager
And at times he'll think she hates him
Then he'll walk her down the aisle
And raise her veil
But right now she's up and cryin'
And the truth is that he don't mind
As he kisses her good night
And she says her prayers
 
He lays down there beside her
'Til her eyes are finally closed
And just watchin' her it breaks his heart
'Cause he already knows
 
It won't be like this for long
One day soon that little girl is gonna be
All grown up and gone
Yeah, this phase is gonna fly by
So, he's tryin' to hold on
Cause it won't be like this for long
It won't be like this for long
