Note:  This song was the B side to Oh Lonesome Me.  The studio heads
didn't think this song was really sellable.  But Don pointed out that since it was the B side it didn't really have to be hot selling song.  Studio agreed.  What a surprise it must have been for them all when this 45rpm turned out to be a double sided hit record.  This is the most re-recorded song in the history of music.  
I don't have this song so I don't know if these are any recordings chords but they sound good.  

       I CAN'T STOP LOVING YOU      Don Gibson

D7           G     G7           C
Those happy hours that we once knew
              G                  A7
Though long a-go still  make me blue
D7             G     G7             C
They say that time heals a broken heart
                     G     D7               G    C  G  
But time has stood still since we've been apart

G7             C                            G 
I can't stop loving you so I've made up my mind
            D7                      G
To live in memory of old lonesome times
G7              C                         G
I can't stop wanting you It's useless to say
              D7                               G   C G 
So I'll just live my life in dreams of yester-day

Repeat first verse but go to chorus II

G7              C                          G
I can't stop loving you there's no use to try
                  D7                        G
Pretend there's someone new I can't live a lie
G7              C                       G
I can't stop wanting you the way that I do
              D7                                    G   C G
There's only been one love for me that one love is you
