D (with riffs)

*** Verse 1:
A A9 G
Guess I got what I deserved
Kept you waiting there too long my love

All that time without a word
Didn't know you'd think that I'd forget
I'd regret

*** Chorus:
Em Em7 G
The special love I had for you
My Baby Blue

*** Verse 2:
All those days became so long A A9 G
Did you really think I'd do you wrong C G D
Dixie, when I let you go A A9 G
Thought you'd realize that I would know C G D
I would show A*

*** Chorus:
The special love I had for you Em Em7 G
My Baby Blue G D

*** Bridge:
F#m Bm
What can I do?
Bmmaj7 Em Em7
What can I say?
Except I want you by my side

How can I show you?
Bmmaj7 Em Em7
Show me a way
Don't you know the times I've tried

*** Instrumental Verse:
(starts on last measure of bridge) ||: (F) C G D :|| X2

*** Verse 3:
Guess that's all I have to say A A9 G
Except the feeling just grows stronger every day C G D
Just one thing before I go A A9 G
Take good care baby, and let me know C G D
Let it grow A*

*** Chorus:
The special love you had for me Em Em7 G
My Dixie dear G D

*** Coda: ||: Em C G D :||
