Album: 
Written by: 
Note: Recorded by Cal Smith, Webb Pierce, Cowboy Cobas and others.
The Webb Pierce recording isn't in standard tuning but the Cowboy
Cobas was so I used the Cowboy Cobas recording to tab this tune.
Webb Pierce is between D and E standard tuning but the chords
they use are in the key of E.
This tab has this same song in two keys.  The key of C is first and
further down the page is the recording key of E.


The key of C

   HOW DO YOU TALK TO A BABY    Cowboy Cobas

Intro C G F C

       C          G          C
I go home to a family that needs me
       G                        C                       
But I sit there with you on my mind
           F                     C
I keep thinking of some way to tell them
      F             G          C
That I'll have to leave them behind
      C          G        C
But how do you talk to a baby
        G                       C
What words will a child under-stand
       F                        C
If I should just walk off and leave them
          F              G                C 
Tell me dear could you love that kind of man

lead  C F G C 

       C              G            C
So I guess that it's best you for-get me
       G                        C
Maybe time will erase all the pain
    F                             C
But I thought it over, it's not worth it
       F                      G             C
Maybe some day dear you'll learn and under-stand


     C          G         C
For how do you talk to a baby
        G                      C
What words will a child under-stand
       F                        C
If I should just walk off and leave them
          F              G               C 
Tell me dear could you love that kind of man
          F              G               C 
Tell me dear could you love that kind of man
