Where've You Been  John Vezner, sung by his wife, Kathy Mattea

Intro: [G]  [Em7]  [C]  [D]  [G]

[D]Claire had all but [Am7]given [D]up  
When [G4]she and [G]Edwin [D/F#]fell in [Em]love    
[D]She touched his face and [Am7]shook her [D]head  
In [G4]disbe[G]lief, she [G4]sighed and [B7]said,    
[Am7]"In many dreams I've [Bm7]held you near  
[C]Now, at [G/B]last, you're [Am7]really [D]here."    
[G]"Where've [Bm7]you [Am7]been?  
I've [C]looked for you for[D]ever and a [G]day  
[G]Where've [Bm7]you [Am7]been?  
[C]I'm just not my[D]self when you're [G]away."

[D]He asked her for her [Am7]hand for [D]life  
And [G4]she be[G]came a [D/F#]salesman's [Em]wife    
[D]He was home each [Am7]night by [D]eight  
But one [G4]stormy [G]evening, [G4]he was [B7]late    
[Am7]Her frightened tears fell [Bm7]to the floor  
[C]Until his [G/B]key turned [Am7]in the [D]door.    
[G]"Where've [Bm7]you [Am7]been?  
I've [C]looked for you for[D]ever and a [G]day  
[G]Where've [Bm7]you [Am7]been?  
[C]I'm just not my[D]self when you're [G]away."  [C] [D] [G]
[C]They'd never spent a night apart
For [Em]sixty years she heard him snore
[C]Now they're in a hospital  [Am7/B]
[Am]In separate beds on different [D]floors  
[D]Claire soon lost her [Am7]memory[D]  
For[G4]got the [G]names [D/F#]of [Em]family    
[D]She never spoke a [Am7]word [D]again  
[G4]Then one [G]day, they [G4]wheeled him [B7]in    
[Am7]He held her hand and [Bm7]stroked her hair  
[C]In a fra[G/B]gile [Am7]voice she [D]said,    
[G]"Where've [Bm7]you [Am7]been?  
I've [C]looked for you for[D]ever and a [G]day  
[G]Where've [Bm7]you [Am7]been?  
[C]I'm just not my[D]self when you're [Em]away."
No, [C]I'm just not my[D]self when you're [G]away." [C] [G]
