Intro: D  G  D

Verse:
D            G               D
If we were children I would bake you a mud pie
D          G                D
Warm and brown beneath the sun
D      G                   D
Never learned to climb a tree but I would try
D         G                D
Just to show you what I'd done

Chorus:
     G           D   
Oh what I wouldn't do
          A             D
If I had you, babe, I had you
     G              D
Oh what I wouldn't do
          A           D
If I had you, babe

Verse -same as first-:
D         G                 D
If I were old, my dearest, you would be older
But I would crawl upon your lap
Wrap a blanket ‘round our frail little shoulders
And I'd die happily like that

Chorus:
     G           D   
Oh what I wouldn't do
          A             D
If I had you, babe, I had you
     G              D
Oh what I wouldn't do
          A                D
If I had you, babe, if I had you
 
Interlude:
    G  D  A  D
    G  D  A


    G                           Em                         D               A
So lace your hands ‘round the small of my back and I will kiss you like a king
        G                            D
I will be your bride, I'll keep you warm at night
        A                 D
I will sing, I will sing

Interlude:
    G  D  A  D
    G  D  A

Verse -same as first-:
D       G               D                  
It was now and we were both in the same place
Didn't know how to say the words
With my heart ticking like a bomb in a birdcage
I left before someone got hurt

Chorus:
     G           D   
Oh what I wouldn't do
          A             D
If I had you, babe, I had you
     G              D
Oh what I wouldn't do
          A                D
If I had you, babe, if I had you

    The lyrics are incorrect at the end… it should say

    “It was what I wouldn’t do/
    When I had you, babe, I had you/
    It was what I wouldn’t do/
    When I had you, babe, when I had you.”
