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
