A
We laid down outside Memphis
                        D
Drawing patterns on the moon
E
Our sleeping bags were all we had
                 A
To keep away the dew

I could not help but wonder
A7                  D    
If I could hold you tight
           E
Since that evening chill

I long to hold you still
                            A
Haven't seen you since that night
               D
But I close my eyes 
           A
And I feel fine
                  E           A   A7
Cause dreams come true by and by
           D
I love you only
              A
But I'm never lonely
                    E
Cause you're always there
                A
When I close my eyes

For a time my life was easy
                         D
Cause I always seemed to know
              E 
One day you'd think of me

And finally see
                     A
How much I loved you so

But one cool October evening
A7                D
Outside the rendezvous
E
Through the fog and mist

I saw two lovers kiss
                             A
One looked an awful lot like you
               D
But I close my eyes 
           A
And I feel fine
                  E           A   A7
Cause dreams come true by and by
           D
I love you only
              A
But I'm never lonely
                    E
Cause you're always there
                A
When I close my eyes

SOLO

A
As the rain hits my windshield
                    D
It get louder every timee
E
I cannot see

Ahead of me
                    A
As clear as I see behind
A
I'm racing out of Memphis
A7                D
Hard and fast and blind
E
I Remember when

I was your only friend
                               A
Now I'm the last thing on your mind
               D
But I close my eyes 
           A
And I feel fine
                  E           A   A7
Cause dreams come true by and by
           D
I love you only
              A
But I'm never lonely
                    E
Cause you're always there
                A
When I close my eyes
