I Walk the Line

Johnny Cash

 AE7A
 I keep a close watch on this heart of mine
 AE7A
 I keep my eyes wide open all the time.
 ADA
 I keep the ends out for the tie that binds
 AE7A
 Because you're mine, I walk the line

I find it very, very easy to be true
I find myself alone when each day is through
Yes, I'll admit I'm a fool for you
Because you're mine, I walk the line

As sure as night is dark and day is light
I keep you on my mind both day and night
And happiness I've known proves that it's right
Because you're mine, I walk the line

You've got a way to keep me on your side
You give me cause for love that I can't hide
For you I know I'd even try to turn the tide
Because you're mine, I walk the line

First verse is correct, but the song changes keys every verse.. thats the unique thing about the song. Key changes are: E-->A-->D-->A-->E, using a 12-cord blue progression in each key, and using an alternating baseline between each to get into the next key without sounding awkward.. just listen to the song.
