Dont close your eyes  Keith Whitley







[C]  [D]  [C] [C/B] [Am]           [G]  1st verse:
I know you loved [Am7]him[D] a long time a[G]go[G/F#] [Em]
Even now in my [Am7]arms[D] you still want him I [G]know[Gsus] [G]
But darling this [C]time[D] let your memories [G]die[G/F#] [Em]
When you hold me to[Am7]night[D] don't close your [C]eyes[C/B] [Am] [G]
Don't close your [C]eyes let it be [D]me
Don't pretend it's [G]him in [G/F#]some fanta[Em]sy
Darling just [Am7]once let yesterday [D]go
You'll find more [G]love than [G/F#]you've ever [Em]known
Just hold me [Am7]tight when you love me to[D]night
And don't close your [C]eyes[C/B] [Am] [G]
2nd verse:
Maybe I've been a fool holding on all this time
Lying here in your arms knowing he's in your mind
But I keep hoping someday that you'll see the light
Let it be tonight, don't close your eyes
(chorus twice)
At the end of the chorus, when he gets to "eyes",
you can play this instead of the G/Gsus/G:

Played this song for years and had to make the corrections. I think you will like it better. Willee121
