My first tab...I'm sure it is not exactly like the original song, but I mainly 
made this for ease if you are a new player just starting.

If you don't have a Capo you can play it without one, it just sounds a little different.

Capo on 2nd fret sounds best to me.


Verse 1
         C            G        D                  E
He didn't have to stay up. He'd been up all night.
        C               G           D                  E
Lyin' there in bed and listenin' to his new born baby cry.
        C           G          D                     E
He makes a pot of coffee and splashes water on his face.
       C              G              D              G
His wife gives him a kiss and says, "it's gonna be ok."

Chorus
       C         D         G
It won't be like this for long.
       C                   D             G                   D
Someday we'll look back laughin' at the week we brought her home.
       C               D        G             E
This phase is gonna fly by, so baby just hold on.
        C            D             G
'Cause it won't be like this for long.

Verse 2
        C                   G             D                 E
Four years later 'bout four thirty she's crawlin' in their bed.
        C                   G               D                 E
And when he drops her off at preschool she's clingin' to his leg.
      C                     G          D                E
The teacher peels her off of him. He says, "What can I do?"
        C               G                      D              G
She says, "Now don't ya worry. This will only last a week or two."

Chorus
       C         D         G
It won't be like this for long.
       C                     D              G                    D
One day soon you'll drop her off and she won't even know you're gone.
       C               D           G             E
This phase is gonna fly by, if you can just hold on.
       C        D          G
It won't be like this for long.

Bridge
        C                 D                G                      D
Someday soon she'll be a teenager and at times he'll think she hates him.
        C                     G                    D
Then he'll walk her down the aisle and raise her veil.
        C                    D              G                     D
But right now she's up and cryin' and the truth is that he don't mind.
       C             G                         D
As he kisses her goodnight and she says her prayers.

Verse 3
     C                G                 D                  E
He lays down there beside her 'til her eyes are finally closed.
            C              G                 D                E
And just watchin' her it breaks his heart 'cause he already knows.

Chorus
        C        D          G
It won't be like this for long.
    C                              D            G           D
One day soon that little girl is gonna be all grown up and gone.
            C                     D        G             E
Yeah, this phase is gonna fly by, so he's tryin' to hold on.
         C            D            E
'Cause it won't be like this for long.
   C           D           G
It won't be like this for long.


That is the easiest and more accurate way to play the song in my opinion.  Let me 
know what you think.
