Standard tuning
[D]Well you stay with me, in the ba[A]lcony,
And we'll s[G]ink in our seas as the p[A]eople all leave
[D]And we can hide out as the cu[A]rtain comes down
And then [G]fall asleep to the sl[A]eeping sound
[Em]When the m[G]orning[A] is drawing [D]near
[Em]I'll see if the c[G]oast is cl[A]ear
[D]Green eyes are b[A]etter than [D]blue
I ain't t[Bm]rying to be me[A]an, just tell[D]ing the truth
[Bm]It's enough to make [G]me run away with[D] you
Darling [D]green eyes are b[A]etter than bl[D]ue
[D]She says, "Th[A]is isn't easy, you[D] know
[Bm]Loving the ha[A]nds that you ain[D]'t supposed to hold
And I [Bm]pray for the d[G]ays when I w[D]on't sleep alone"
[D]She says, "Th[A]is isn't easy, you[D] know"
[D]Well Johnny says d[A]on't bring h[D]er down
[Bm]'Cause when the p[A]edestal crumbles and [D]falls to the ground
You will [Bm]wish that you l[G]eft her the w[D]ay that you'd found her
[D]Now Johnny says d[A]on't bring h[D]er down
Well I [D]saw you in the w[A]ater last n[D]ight
You were[Bm] smiling at [A]me as you sl[D]ipped out of sight
When I w[Bm]oke from my d[G]ream I was sc[D]reaming for life
'Cause I [D]saw you in the w[A]ater last n[D]ight
