A
We laid down outside Memphis
D
Drawing patterns on the moon
E
Our sleeping bags were all we had
A
To keep away the dew

I could not help but wonder
A7 D
If I could hold you tight
E
Since that evening chill

I long to hold you still
A
Haven’t seen you since that night
D
But I close my eyes
A
And I feel fine
E A A7
Cause dreams come true by and by
D
I love you only
A
But I’m never lonely
E
Cause you’re always there
A
When I close my eyes

For a time my life was easy
D
Cause I always seemed to know
E
One day you’d think of me

And finally see
A
How much I loved you so

But one cool October evening
A7 D
Outside the rendezvous
E
Through the fog and mist

I saw two lovers kiss
A
One looked an awful lot like you
D
But I close my eyes
A
And I feel fine
E A A7
Cause dreams come true by and by
D
I love you only
A
But I’m never lonely
E
Cause you’re always there
A
When I close my eyes

SOLO

A
As the rain hits my windshield
D
It get louder every timee
E
I cannot see

Ahead of me
A
As clear as I see behind
A
I’m racing out of Memphis
A7 D
Hard and fast and blind
E
I Remember when

I was your only friend
A
Now I’m the last thing on your mind
D
But I close my eyes
A
And I feel fine
E A A7
Cause dreams come true by and by
D
I love you only
A
But I’m never lonely
E
Cause you’re always there
A
When I close my eyes
