I'd Cry Like A Baby

Words & Music by Gallup & Steiner
Recorded by Dean Martin, 1954

E7  A6         F#m         AM7         A6
I'd cry like a baby if you told me goodbye;

E7  A6          F#m             A9     A7/9
I'd feel like a snowball on the 4th of July.

   D        Fdim          A9           A
If you ever said you were leaving for good,

    B7          Bm7             Bm7-5     E
I'd weep like a weeping willow, honest I would.

E7  A6         F#m         AM7         A6
I'd cry like a baby with a busted balloon,

E7  A6        F#m                 A9           A7
I'd let out a wail that would be heard to the moon.

     D          Fdim              AM7        F#7
Our love was so splendid -- don't end it so soon,

       E7      F#m    E7     F#7            B7
Don't leave me here sighing, sobbing and a-sighing,

D9     Bm7-5  E7/9  E7 E7/6 A
Crying like a  ba - by for you.
