Shawn's Actual Chord Voicings:
Like any performer, Shawn alternates between voicings of any given chord
substituting open and alternate notes into his chords for coloration. Sometimes he plays G with a high G-(1st string, 3rd fret,) sometimes he voices it with an open E ringing. Etc etc. Same goes for B11 and C.

{Tuning:  E A D G B E} - Standard Tuning

{define G:         base-fret 0     frets   3 2 0 0 3 3}

{define B11:       base-fret 0     frets   x 2 0 0 3 0}

LULLABY

Intro:
G      D/G     B11    Cadd9      :Play accented bass notes of chords on guitar with
                                  right hand muting across bridge.

Verse 1 : Right hand muting integral throughout verses on most every chord.
(D/G) = this chord barely suggested in verses.

G                            (D/G)                B11        Cadd9
        She grew up with the children of the stars
G                                 (D/G)                     B11    Cadd9
        In the    holl  y  wood   hills  and the boulevard
G                             D/G           B11          Cadd9
        Her parents threw big parties       everyone was there
G                           (D/G)                       B11              Cadd9
         They hung out with folks like Dennis Hopper,   &  Bob Seeger, & Sonny and Cher

Intro to verse 2:
(Hit it hard! Strong root and 5th of chords: let upper notes ring.)

G ------------------ D/G --------------- B11----------------Cadd9

Verse 2
(same as verse 1)

G                      D/G          B11      Cadd9
She feels safe now in this bar on fairfax
G                        D/G           B11              Cadd9
And from the stage I can tell that she can't let go she can't relax
G                   D/G       B11          Cadd9
And just before she hangs her head to cry,
G                  D/G                  B11     Cadd9
I sing to her. . . .            a lulla-by

Chorus
(Hit it hard! Strong root and 5th of chords:)

             G                D/G               Cadd9    (Stay on Cadd9)
    (I sing) Ev-ery----thing's gonna be all     right

             G      D/G                       Cadd9
             Rockabye,               Rock       a      bye

             G                D/G               Cadd9
             Ev-ery----thing's gonna be all     right

             A                                     C                Tacit
        Rockabye,               Rock       a       bye ….        Rock       a       bye

Intro to verse 3
(Softly)

G                      D/G          B11                   Cadd9

Verse 3
(same as before)

She still lives with her mom outside the city
Down that street about a half a mile
And all her friends tell her she's so pretty
But she'd be so much prettier if she smiled once in a while
Cause even her smile looks like a frown
She's seen her share on devils in this angel town

Chorus:

             G                D/G               Cadd9    (Stay on Cadd9)
             Ev-ery----thing's gonna be all     right

             G        D/G                       Cadd9
        Rockabye,               Rock       a      bye

             G                D/G               Cadd9
             Ev-ery----thing's gonna be all     right

             A                                     C                       Tacit
        Rockabye,               Rock       a       bye ….        Rock       a       bye

Guitar SOLO with power chord  variation:

 G   D   B     C------  G   D   B     C ---------
 A                              C
 A                              C---------D--------
 G

Verse4
(same as before w/ variation on 4th line)

I told her I ain't so sure about this place

It's hard to play a gig in this town and keep a straight face

It seems like everybody's got a plan
G                 D/G              G      Gsus4
It's kind of like Nashville with a tan

Repeated Chorus to Coda:
(much softer )

             G                D/G               Cadd9
             Ev-ery----thing's gonna be all     right

             G          D/G                     Cadd9
       Rockabye,               Rock       a      bye

             G                D/G               Cadd9
             Ev-ery----thing's gonna be all     right

                 A                                     C
        To  Rockabye,               Rock       a       bye ….        Ah, na, na…

Repeat to coda....

a final word:

(you'll have to figure out the coda on your own....lol)
This is not %100 accurate but it's real close.
Have fun...
Hope you enjoy playing the song.
Shawn wrote us all a great one!
