Intro: G   B7
       C    G
       C    G
       Am   D


    G                   B7
I remember the day you appeared on this earth
     C                        G
With eyes like the ocean, got blood on my shirt
     C                  G
         Am                  D
But your momma had a big old smile


G                           B7
We drove you home, saw your yellowing skin
C                             G
Packed a few things and drove you back again
C                         G
Stayed up all night, worrying, wondering
Am                     D
What was gonna make it better


Am                       D
Broken bones heal if you set them right
         G            G/F#          Em
Get your fine-toothed comb from the barber's side
    C                   D
Our love's a protective poison
    C   C/B      C  C/B   Am
But you are your mother's child
    G      G/F#     G  G/F# Em
And she'll keep you for a while
        C                    D                     (G Am*)x3 G-Cadd9-G
But one day you'll be grown, then you'll be on your own


G                  B7
Halloween costume, looking real cute
          C                         G
With your pillow case full, in your astronaut suit
     C                        G
Your cousin, the cowboy, he's eyeing your loot
Am                         D
Better watch your Snickers bar


G                   B7
Out on the diamond, you're up to bat
C                         G
Chewing your Big League, adjusting your hat
C                  G
Taking a swing and hearing it crack
Am                 D
Look at that apple fly


     Am                    D
Well tears will dry if you give them time
         G     G/F#               Em
Life's a rollercoaster, keep your arms inside
C                   D
Fear, that's a big emotion
    C   C/B      C  C/B   Am
But you are your mother's child
    G      G/F#     G  G/F# Em
And she'll keep you for a while
    C                     D                     (G Am*)x3 G-Cadd9-G
But soon you'll be grown, then you'll be on your own


G                    B7
Posing for pictures, cap and gown
C                        G
Summer is coming, you're driving round town
C                             G
Everyone's asking what you're gonna do now
  Am                       D
I know you're gonna make a splash


G                         B7
Find you a sweetheart, to treat you so kind
C                      G
Take her to dinner and kiss her goodnight
     C                     G
What I couldn't teach you, soon you realised
Am                        D
She's the only thing that matters


  Am                               D
Although he's a bastard, make your papa proud
         G          G/F#      Em
You're a fine young man and I got no doubt
     C                    D
That you're gonna do this better
       C   C/B     C  C/B    Am
'Cause you are your mother's child
    G   G/F#    G  G/F# Em
And she had you for a while
    C                         D                 G  G/F#  Em
But now you are grown, you're making it on your own
C                              D                 (G Am*)x3 G-Cadd9-G
Now that you're grown, man, you never feel this alone
