My Baby And My Wife

Song Author Ernest Tubb Performer: Ernest Tubb Submitted by: Anonymous
[C]When twilight shadows are falling
And [F]my day's work is [C]done
Tis then I wind my way back to my [G7]home   
And the [C]light I find there shining
Like a [F]guiding star to [C]me  
To show me the [G7]right road from the [C]wrong

It's [G7]there a girl is waiting
With a [C]baby On her [A7]knee   
And to [D7]see them it just fills my heart with [G7]joy   
Be[C]cause I truly love them
They [F]mean the world to [C]me  
It's my wife and my [G7]precious baby [C]boy  


And when our meal is over
We're [F]sitting by the [C]fire
And the baby crawls around there on the [G7]floor
My [C]thoughts then turn to heaven
And I [F]thank the Lord a[C]bove
For the blessings he has [G7]let come in our [C]door

I [G7]know I'm not deserving
The [C]blessings he has [A7]sent   
I try [D7]and try and yet I go a[G7]stray
But [C]I will keep on praying
For the [F]Lord To help me [C]be  
The man I want my [G7]boy to be [C]someday


The time just rolls right on around
The [F]clock is striking [C]nine
And the baby is a yawning now and [G7]then   
My [C]wife she gently picks him up
And [F]starts to rocking [C]him  
I can feel a tugging [G7]at my heart with[C]in  

His [G7]head up on her shoulders
Her [C]neck his arms en[A7]twine
His [D7]eyelids are heavy as can [G7]be   
Then [C]he gives up the struggle
And [F]snuggles close to [C]her  

It's a sight that's worth more
[G7]Than this world to [C]me  


Then when he is in dreamland
She [F]tucks him in his [C]bed  
And side by side we two kneel down and [G7]pray   
We [C]ask the lord in heaven
To [F]watch our darling [C]boy  
And to help him walk the [G7]straight and narrow [C]way  

At [G7]times this world seems dreary
And [C]hardships come my [A7]way   
As [D7]I struggle on through this [G7]life   
But [C]my cares all just vanish
When I [F]reach that little [C]home
To be greeted by my [G7]baby and my [C]wife

When twilight shadows are falling
And my day's work is done
Tis then I wind my way back to my home
And the light I find there shining
Like a guiding star to me
To show me the right road from the wrong

It's there a girl is waiting
With a baby On her knee
And to see them it just fills my heart with joy
Because I truly love them
They mean the world to me
It's my wife and my precious baby boy

And when our meal is over
We're sitting by the fire
And the baby crawls around there on the floor
My thoughts then turn to heaven
And I thank the Lord above
For the blessings he has let come in our door

I know I'm not deserving
The blessings he has sent
I try and try and yet I go astray
But I will keep on praying
For the Lord To help me be
The man I want my boy to be someday

The time just rolls right on around
The clock is striking nine
And the baby is a yawning now and then
My wife she gently picks him up
And starts to rocking him
I can feel a tugging at my heart within

His head up on her shoulders
Her neck his arms entwine
His eyelids are heavy as can be
Then he gives up the struggle
And snuggles close to her

It's a sight that's worth more
Than this world to me

Then when he is in dreamland
She tucks him in his bed
And side by side we two kneel down and pray
We ask the lord in heaven
To watch our darling boy
And to help him walk the straight and narrow way

At times this world seems dreary
And hardships come my way
As I struggle on through this life
But my cares all just vanish
When I reach that little home
To be greeted by my baby and my wife
