[Intro]
G   
......

[Verse]
           G   
She won't let me help her tie her shoes

"No, daddy, I can do it myself"
      Em  
When she don't get her way

She'll cross her arms and hold her breath
          C   
She's a handful, she's a mess

Digging in the dirt in her princess dress
          Am  
Goes from tiny tornado
                        D  
To sleeping on my chest.....
[Chorus]
               C         D   
God bless the boy that melts the way I do
           G                D/F#  
When she smiles at him the first time
         Em  
He'll be done, oh, he'll be through
           Am   
Give him patience and kindness
        D   
And a heart that's full of her
          G                D/F#        Em  
And the sense to know just what she's worth
        Am                               D   
'Cause ain't nobody ever gonna be good enough
         C                  D        G  
So God bless the boy she decides to love

[Verse]
             G   
I hope his daddy's teaching him

How to shake my hand and look me in the eye
      Em   
And taking him fishing and busting his butt
When he ain't acting right
                 C    
I hope he's in every prayer his momma prays

And learns to work for every dollar he gets
    Am   
And has a sense of humor
                               D   
Gonna need it for a girl like this

[Chorus]
               C         D   
God bless the boy that melts the way I do
           G                D/F#  
When she smiles at him the first time
         Em  
He'll be done, oh, he'll be through
           Am   
Give him patience and kindness
        D   
And a heart that's full of her
          G                D/F#        Em  
And the sense to know just what she's worth
        Am                               D   
'Cause ain't nobody ever gonna be good enough
         C                  D        G  
So God bless the boy she decides to love
