[verse]
B                 E            B
Remember when you scraped your knees?
    G#m     B        E            B
Crying “Momma, hold me once more, please”
    B                      E         B
And out she’d run and she’d dry your eyes
      G#m       B     E         B
Saying “It’s okay baby now rockabye”

[chorus]

C#m7         G#m               B         E      B
 Sing to me again, oh mom, I’m tired and I can’t sleep
C#m7         G#m               D#               G#m
 Sing to me again, oh mom, I’m tired and I can’t sleep

[verse]
B                           E         B
 You miss the songs in your dad’s old car
    G#m           B            E            B
The first time you heard it and watched the stars
             B                     E        B
When the nights were cold and your light-up shoes
    G#m            B           E        B
Would stomp on the pavement and twinkle blue

[chorus]

C#m7         G#m               B         E      B
 Read to me again, oh dad, I’m tired and I can’t sleep
C#m7         G#m               D#               G#m
 Read to me again, oh dad, I’m tired and I can’t sleep

[verse]
B                 E         B
 Remember when the pictures aged
         G#m        B               E         B
When the clock kept ticking and the band kept playing
        B                     E      B
Now the nights are cold and I dry my eyes
      G#m       B     E     B
I sing “It’s okay baby rockabye”

[chorus]
C#m7         G#m               B         E      B
 Read to me again, oh dad, I’m tired and I can’t sleep
C#m7        G#m               C#m              G#m
Sing to me again, oh mom, I’m tired and I can’t sleep
