My Filipino Baby

Song Author Billy Cox og Clarke Van Ness Performer: Ernest Tubb Submitted by: Anonymous

[C]When the warships left Manila Sailing [F]proudly over the sea
All the [C]sailor's hearts were [D7]filled with fond re[G7]gret   
Looking [C]backward to this island where they [F]spent such happy hours
Making [G7]love to every pretty girl they [C]met  

When up stepped a little sailor with his [F]bright eyes all aglow
Saying [C]take a look at [D7]my gal's photo[G7]graph
Then the [C]sailors gathered round him just [F]look upon her face
And he [G7]said I love my Filipino [C]Baby

She's my Filipino baby
She's my [F]treasure and my pet
Her [C]teeth are bright and pearly
And her [D7]hair is black as [G7]jet   
Oh her [C]lips are sweet as honey
And her [F]heart is true I know
She's my [G7]darling little Filipino [C]Baby

In a little rustic cottage in the [F]far off Philippines
Dwells a [C]pretty little [D7]maiden all a[G7]lone   
She is [C]thinking of her true love though [F]he's far across the sea
And her [G7]heart beats true for him and him [C]alone

Then one day he whispered darling I've come [F]back from Caroline
I've come [C]back to claim the [D7]only girl I [G7]love   
Then that [C]night there was a wedding
While the [F]ship's crew gathered round
And he [G7]wed his little Filipino [C]Baby

She's my Filipino baby
She's my [F]treasure and my pet
Her [C]teeth are bright and pearly
And her [D7]hair is black as [G7]jet   
Oh her [C]lips are sweet as honey
And her [F]heart is true I know
She's my [G7]darling little Filipino [C]Baby


When the warships left Manila Sailing proudly over the sea
All the sailor's hearts were filled with fond regret
Looking backward to this island where they spent such happy hours
Making love to every pretty girl they met

When up stepped a little sailor with his bright eyes all aglow
Saying take a look at my gal's photograph
Then the sailors gathered round him just look upon her face
And he said I love my Filipino Baby

She's my Filipino baby
She's my treasure and my pet
Her teeth are bright and pearly
And her hair is black as jet
Oh her lips are sweet as honey
And her heart is true I know
She's my darling little Filipino Baby

In a little rustic cottage in the far off Philippines
Dwells a pretty little maiden all alone
She is thinking of her true love though he's far across the sea
And her heart beats true for him and him alone

Then one day he whispered darling I've come back from Caroline
I've come back to claim the only girl I love
Then that night there was a wedding
While the ship's crew gathered round
And he wed his little Filipino Baby

She's my Filipino baby
She's my treasure and my pet
Her teeth are bright and pearly
And her hair is black as jet
Oh her lips are sweet as honey
And her heart is true I know
She's my darling little Filipino Baby
