Words by Heart  Billy Ray Cyrus

Title: Words by Heart
Artist: Billy Ray Cyrus
Album: This won't be the Last
Intro: G D C
(Note: Muted strumming throughout verses, open strumming throughout
chorus and bridge.)
I was [G]going through the closet, back in [D]my old home
Found my [C]lettermans jacket, so I [D]slipped it on
[G]Deep in the pocket, still [D]folded up tight
Was the [C]letter you wrote, to [D]tell me goodbye
The [G]minute I saw it, I [D]just had to smile
It [C]smelled like old leather, as [D]smooth as a child
I [G]took a deep breath, and [D]put it away
There was [C]no need to read it, I knew just [D]what it would say
[G]I know the words by heart
I know [D]every line
>From[C] this ain't easy
To you'll [D]get along just fine
[G]I know every comma, every [D]question mark
No I [C]don't have to look
I know the words [D]by [G]heart
[End Cborus] 
[G]Scenes like old movies, [D]flash through my head
The [C]homecoming game, the [D]night on my bed
The [G]words that you wrote, still [D]cut me in two
How you [C]said you still cared, but [D]that we were through
[Repeat Cborus] 
[Em]Ain't it funny how a [C]memory
[G]Can play tricks on your [D]mind
I don't [Em]remember a thing from my [C]classes
But I can [G]quote you [C]every [D]line
[End bridge] 
I [G]took off my jacket, and [D]put it away
With your [C]note in the pocket, like I [D]found it that day
[G]Poured me a beer, then [D]pictured your face
And drank a [C]silent toast, to things that [D]time can't erase
[Repeat Cborus X2]
