How To Play

Capo on 5
 
 
G
Emily comes home from school
                        Cadd9
Grabs on to her daddy's hand
        G
He says baby girl what's wrong with you
                                 Cadd9
She says, please don't make me go back there again
           C                                   C2 [x30010]
She said I wish there was some way to make 'em stop it
      C                                D            D -once
So he drives down to that principals office, and says
 
 
         G
I didn't bring her up
              Em
So they could cut her down
         C
I didn't bring her here
             D
So they could shut her out
          G
I live my whole damn life
            Em
To see that little girl smile
           C                             D
So why are tears pouring down that sweet face?
                 -         G
She wasn't brought up that way 
 
 
G
Emily's home late again
                       Cadd9
He sees that boy drive away
        G
Oh, but somethings different this time
                    Cadd9
She doesn't have too much to say                   
            C                                         C2 [x30010]
She said he tried, but there just some things I won't do
                C                                    D
And through the tears she said I couldn't do that to you
          D -once
And he said,
 
 
         G
I didn't bring you up
            Em
So he could wear you down
          C
Take that innocent heart
           D
And turn it inside out
          G
I live my whole damn life
          Em
To see my little girl smile
         C                     D
So don't let nobody take that away
                            G
You weren't brought up that way
 
 
   [200033]    [x30010]
G....G/F#....C....C2....C....C2 -once D-once (All chords are 4 beats except
                                              the last C2 & D just one strum)
 
G
The phone rings on a rainy night
                  Cadd9
Says it's Officer Tate
         G
He said, Sir there's been an accident
                     Cadd9
You better come down here right away
  C                             C2
A drunken driver missed an over-pass
    C                   D               D -once
And Emily, she's fading fast, he says God
 
 
         G
I didn't bring her up
              Em
To watch them lay her Down
       C                              D
Nearly killed me the day they put her mama in the ground
           G                      Em
Only thing kept me alive was that little girl's smile
   C                       D
So please don't take that away
            C               D
It won't be easy taking her today
                 -         G
She wasn't brought up that way
 
 
G
He stands over the hospital bed
                  Cadd9 -once
Emily opens her.. eyes
