Baby's Coming Back

Chords by:  Justin Makeig  (makeig@nwu.edu)

C
I knew that when I saw her
that my life would move over from the fast lane
Gone would be the days of all my drinkin' and my carryin' on
But when I settled down
The party king uncrowned
this stubborn memory hadn't faded
too many dumb mistakes
and all the grief it makes
left nothin' else to be debated

D7                            F                             C          F
And if you say that you understand then your lyin'
D7                           F maj7sus2                   C maj - C sus4 - C maj
but if you figure that I'm all right now I can't deny it

Dm              G7
Baby's comin' back, Baby's comin' back
         Am
so I'm on my best behavior
           Dm                     G                       A min
I can't take it anymore I just woke up on the floor today

       D min/A                        G maj                       (verse riff)
I've long run out of my last chances but she's on her way

(same as first verse)
If I had a dollar for every single time I fought her I'd buy a handgun
But that couldn't shoot away the bullseye that she made on my heart

(same as first bridge)
And if I sound like a beaten man well I guess so
but on her way is the sweetest prize and I can't let go

(same as first chorus)
Baby's comin' back
Baby's comin' back
so I'm on my best behavior
I can't take it anymore
I just woke up on the floor today                       C-G-A-e-C-b (descending)
I've long run out of my last chances but she's on her way

A min                                                        G maj        D maj
What I told her on the telephone was that I'd been so bad
A min                                                           D maj     G maj
I wouldn't blame her if she mowed down these wild oats I'd sown
                      F maj                                         Bb7
But when she said she give me one more chance
         G maj G maj G maj
I said knock three times when you arive

This transcription is from the acoustic version that Jellyfish plays.
It will also work on the album version. Sometimes they play it with a
capo on the first fret in which case you'd just move all the chords up
a fret. Also, the chord names on the bridge are an approximation, but the
actual chords are the way that Jellyfish plays them.
The main ryhthm toggles back and forth between the C maj and
C sus4 chords using your pinkie.


C maj      C sus4
I knew that when I saw her
that my life would move over from the fast lane
Gone would be the days of all my drinkin' and my carryin' on
But when I settled down
The party king uncrowned
this stubborn memory hadn't faded
too many dumb mistakes
and all the grief it makes
left nothin' else to be debated

E min9                            F maj7sus2                C maj (add 2nd)
And if you say that you understand then your lyin'
E min9                            F maj7sus2                   C maj - C sus4 - C maj
but if you figure that I'm all right now I can't deny it

D min/A                  G maj
Baby's comin' back, Baby's comin' back
           A min
so I'm on my best behavior
           D min/A                      G maj                       A min
I can't take it anymore I just woke up on the floor today

       D min/A                        G maj                              (verse riff)
I've long run out of my last chances but she's on her way

(same as first verse)
If I had a dollar for every single time I fought her I'd buy a handgun
But that couldn't shoot away the bullseye that she made on my heart

(same as first bridge)
And if I sound like a beaten man well I guess so
but on her way is the sweetest prize and I can't let go

(same as first chorus)
Baby's comin' back
Baby's comin' back
so I'm on my best behavior
I can't take it anymore
I just woke up on the floor today                                   C-G-A-e-C-b (descending)
I've long run out of my last chances but she's on her way

A min                                                              G maj        D maj
What I told her on the telephone was that I'd been so bad
A min                                                                                    D maj     G maj
I wouldn't blame her if she mowed down these wild oats I'd sown
                      F maj                                         Bb7
But when she said she give me one more chance
         G maj G maj G maj
I said knock three times when you arive
