                                          KEEPER OF THE STARS

                                               TRACY BYRD

this is the acoustic guitar part only - the slide parts are not included

I think this is pretty accurate but I know there are a few simplifications I made.

This song holds up well as a solo acoustic piece.  I performed it at a wedding solo 
and it turned out very well.







                                                      It was no







accident              me finding you







                  someone had a hand in it   long before we ever







knew                      now I just can't believe







        you're in my life                   heaven's smilin'







down on me                as I look at you tonight

strum these chords
              G   A                     Fm

Well I tip my hat  to the keeper of the stars

G                       Em

He sure knew what he was doin'

A                        D

when he joined these two hearts

D           G    A                     Fm

I hold everything when I hold you in my arms

G                      Em

I've got all I'll ever need

A              G                   riff 1

Thanks to the keeper of the stars

riff 1                           







The second verse is very similar to the first and is even simplified in a few places.
Play the same picking pattern as the first verse.

second verse

Soft moonlight on your face
oh how you shine
it takes my breath away
when I look into your eyes
I know I don't deserve
a treasure like you
there really are no words
to show my gratitude

the song ends with a partial repeat of the 1st verse

it was no accident
me finding you
someone had a hand in it
long before we ever knew

riff 1 again but add a D chord slow strum at the end
