Sleeping With the Telephone  Reba McEntire

TUNING: Drop D
CAPO: 5th Fret
INTRO: C
(Faith)
I knew who he was when I took his name
But somehow knowing, is just not the same late at[F] night[Dm7] [C]
He knows the danger, but he does what he does
He calls it duty, but I call it love, so here [F]I am
While he's [Dm7]gone to some foreign land
CHORUS:
(Both)
And I cr[C]y, 'cause I'm a[Dm7]ll alone
And the n[C]ight gets so [F]cold and long
And I tr[G]y not to [Am]think he won't come h[Dm]ome
But I'm [F]sleeping with the telepho[C]ne
INSTRUMENTAL: C
(Reba)
The yellow ribbon on my neighbour's gate
Always reminds me that someone's awake just like [F]me[Dm7] [C]
I hear the sirens and I watch the news
He laughs and leaves with his gun and his blue uni[F]form
And I [Dm7]pray god keeps him safe from harm
CHORUS:
(Both)
And I cr[C]y, 'cause I'm a[Dm7]ll alone
And the n[C]ight gets so [F]cold and long
And I tr[G]y not to [Am]think he won't come [Dm]home___[F]_
But I'm sleeping with the telepho[Eb]ne
BRIDGE:
(Reba)
I lose him in my darkest dr[F]eams
(Faith)
And my blood runs cold and my heart skips a b[Eb]eat
(Reba)
So I get up, I can't take any[F]more
(Both)
Sometimes I [Dm7]hate how much I love him
But everyday I love him mor[C]e[Dm] [C] [F]
(Both)
And I tr[C]y not to [Am]think he won't come [Dm]home___[F]_
But I'm sleeping with the telepho[C]ne
OUTRO:
(Faith)
Something awakes me from where he should be
I reach for him
The telephone rings
