FILIPINO BABY Recorded by Ernest Tubb written by Billy Cox and Clarke Van Ness
C F When the warships left Manila Sailing proudly over the sea C D7 G7 All the sailor's hearts were filled with fond regret C F Looking backward to this island where they spent such happy hours G7 C Making love to every pretty girl they met
F When up stepped a little sailor with his bright eyes all aglow C D7 G7 Saying take a look at my gal's photograph C F Then the sailors gathered round him just look upon her face G7 C And he said I love my Filipino Baby
She's my Filipino baby F She's my treasure and my pet C Her teeth are bright and pearly D7 G7 And her hair is black as jet C Oh her lips are sweet as honey F And her heart is true I know G7 C She's my darling little Filipino Baby
F In a little rustic cottage in the far off Philippines C D7 G7 Dwells a pretty little maiden all alone C F She is thinking of her true love though he's far across the sea G7 C And her heart beats true for him and him alone
F Then one day he whispered darling I've come back from Caroline C D7 G7 I've come back to claim the only girl I love C Then that night there was a wedding F While the ship's crew gathered round G7 C And he wed his little Filipino Baby
