  • 03:32 Lyrics Baby Jack

    Baby Jack

     

    Verse 1

     

    I close my eyes and I can see

    The beautiful boy that you will be

    We’re 3000 miles apart

    Oh, Baby Jack, you’re always in my heart

     

    Verse 2

     

    I fly out West and I can see

    You’re so small and so sweet

    It breaks my heart when it’s time to leave

    Oh, Baby Jack, in you I believe

     

    Chorus

     

    Whoa Oh Oh  Baby Jack, Baby Jack, Baby Jack

    Whoa Oh Oh Baby Jack, Baby Jack, Baby Jack

    Whoa Oh Oh Baby Jack, Baby Jack, Baby Jack

    Oh, Baby Jack, I’ll always come back

     

     

    Bridge

     

    Hey Jack, you’re the baby bro

    The brand new kid on the block

    Your journey will take you to and fro                 

    You know that Calder Boy will always be your rock

     

     

    Verse 3

     

    I know that I will always see

    A boy footloose and fancy free

    In my mind you’re already a star

    Sittin’ with me as we play our guitars

     

    Verse 4

    I close my eyes and I can see

    The beautiful boy that you will be

    We’re 3000 miles apart

    Oh, Baby Jack, you’re always in my heart

     

     

    Chorus

     

    Whoa Oh Oh  Baby Jack, Baby Jack, Baby Jack

    Whoa Oh Oh Baby Jack, Baby Jack, Baby Jack

    Whoa Oh Oh Baby Jack, Baby Jack, Baby Jack

    Oh, Baby Jack, I’ll always come back

    Oh, Baby Jack, I’ll always come back
