That's Why God Made the Movies

A7         E7             B7+5
When I was born my mother died
         Gmaj7   C#m7-5    Cmaj7 F#
She said bye-bye baby, bye-bye
        G#m
I said, "Where you goin'?
F#dim Em   D
I'm   just born"
              E       E/D#       E/D
She said I'll only be gone for a while
   C#7             F#9            B
My mother loved to leave in style
                               E7 A7 E7
That's why God made the movies

             E7                    B7+5
Well I laid around in my swaddling clothes
          Gmaj7           C#m7-5         Cmaj7 F#
Until the doctor came and turned out the light
       G#m
Then I packed my bag
    F#dim Em  D
And my    nametag
    E          E/D#     E/D
And stole away into the night
C#7                 F#9            B
Hoping things would work out right
                               E7
That's why God made the movies

E       D/F#  E/G#    A
Say you will, say you will
           G#m     F#m     Emaj7
Say you'll take me to your loving breast
                                F#m7       B9
Say you'll nourish me with your tenderness
                             C#m B
The way the ladies sometimes do

E       D/F#   E/G#    A
Say you won't, say you won't
              G#m      F#m    Emaj7
Say you won't leave me for no other man
                            F#m7  E B/D#
Say you'll love me just the way I am
tacet
Say you'll love me
        E7   A7        E7
Say you will,  say you will

A7         E7             B7+5
When I was born my mother died
         Gmaj7   C#m7-5    Cmaj7 F#
She said bye-bye baby, bye-bye
    G#m
And since that day
     F#dim Em D
I've paid  my way
      E       E/D#       E/D
The notorious boy of the wild
 C#7           F#9
Adopted by the wolves when he was a child
B
That's why God.
That's why God.
                        E7     A7 E7 A7
That's why God made the movies
