DON'T CLOSE YOUR EYES   Keith Whitley
G                 C      D         G
I know you loved him a long time a-go
Em              C    D                    G 
Even now in my arms you still want him I know
(G)               C    D                 G
But darling this time let your memories die
Em                    C    D                G
When you hold me to-night Don't close your eyes

CHORUS:
G                 C             D 
Don't close your eyes Let it be me
(D)                 G                Em
Don't pretend it's him in some fanta-sy
              C                  D
Darling just once Let yesterday go
(D)                   G                     Em
And you'll find more love then you've ever known
              Am                      D
Just hold me tight When you love me tonight
                      Em  C  D  G
And Don't close your eyes

LEAD
G                   C     D                  G
Maybe I've been a fool Holding on all this time
Em                  C     D                    G
Right here in your arms Knowing he's in your heart
(G)                     C   D                   G
But I keep hoping some-day that you'll see the light
Em        C      D               G 
Baby to-night, don't close your eyes

Go to chorus.
