CRADLE OF LOVE (Paul Kelly)
---------------------------
[It's actually in F#, but since the closest to F# I could get using the
 capo would be the 4th fret, I'm just gonna pretend I've tuned my guitar
 down a half step and play it in G.]
[Each chord is one measure.]

G  D  Em  C    G  D  G  G
[intro]

               Bm      C                 G         Em
Well baby, you look tired, and baby, you look beat
                   G          G            D     G
Seems like you've been working eight days a week
           Bm         C                     G       Em
Baby, take a break from all you've been thinkin' of
        G   D            D     G
Come into my cradle of love

Baby, let me hold you and rock your cares away
Put aside your troubles and the ending of the day
'Cause when we lie together, I fit you like a glove
        G   D            G
Come into my cradle of love

D              D      Em          C         G
  Down in the val - ley, you can lose your name
            G          D        D
  All your sorrow and your pain
D       D          Em         C
  Dark warm waters, they can heal you
  G         G               D    G
And make you all brand new again

So baby come on over and lean your head on me
Here in my arms now is where you're meant to be
Baby, take advantage of all I've got to give
Come into my cradle of love

Down in the valley, you can lose your name
All your sorrow and your pain
Dark warm waters, they can you heal you
And make you all brand new again

              Bm    C              G          Em
So baby come on over and lean your head on me
        G   D            G   C
Come into my cradle of love
         G       D             Em   C
Baby let me be your cradle of love
                G    D [stop]       G     D           Em    C       G  D
Oh baby, come into my    cradle of lo-o-o-ove, oh oh ohhh, yeah, ohhhh...
G  Bm  C  G    Em  G  G  D
[instrumental; repeat and fade]
