Baby Doe
Steve Taylor

F#m

 F#m              F#m(E)           D7  Esus  A
Unfolding today, a miracle play this Indiana morn.
A(G#) F#m                F#m(E)                D7  Esus  A
The father he sighs, she opens her eyes, their baby boy is born.
A(G#) F#m                F#m(E)                   D7     Esus       A
We don't understand, he's not like we planned, the doctor shakes his head.
A(G#) F#m              F#m(E)              D7       Esus   A
"Abnormal" they cry and so they decide this child is better dead.

 F#m  B   E
I bear the blame
    D        E       D       E    A     (G#)
Believers are few and what am I to do?
 F#m  B   E
I share the shame
    D        E        D        E    F#m 
The cradle's below and where is Baby Doe?
F#m(E)    D7 / Esus  A / A(G#)

 F#m              F#m(E)           D7  Esus  A
A hearing is sought, the lawyers are bought, the court won't let him eat.
A(G#) F#m                F#m(E)                D7  Esus  C(D)
The papers applaud when judges play God, this child is getting weak.
        Gm2              Gm2(F)                Eb7 /    Fsus    Bb
They're drawing a bead, reciting their creed, "Respect a woman's choice."
   Gm2              Gm2(F)                Eb7 /    Fsus    Bb
I've heard that before, how can you ignore this baby had a voice.

 Gm   C7  F
I bear the blame
    Eb       F       Eb      Fsus Bb    (G#)
Believers are few and what am I to do?
 Gm  C7  F
I share the shame
    Eb       F        Eb        F    C(D) 
The cradle's below and where is Baby Doe?
Eb(F)        Gm7  Csus(F) Ab   D
Where will it end?  Oh     no,  no.

        Gm              Gm(F)                Eb7 /    Fsus    Bb
It's over and done, the presses have run, some call the parents brave.
   Gm                    Gm(F)                Eb7 / Fsus      Bb
Behind your disguise, your rhetoric lies, you watched a baby starve.
 Gm7  C2  F2
I bear the blame
    Eb       F2      Eb      F2   Gm
The cradle's below and where is baby?
