      WHY CAN'T HE BE YOU   Patsy Cline

Intro chords  F#  B C# B

C#            F#                G#m 
  He takes me to the places you And I use to go
G#m                                 F#
He tells me over and over that he loves me so
F#                                      B
He gives me love that I never got from you
B           F#                C#  G#m              F# 
He loves me too  His love is true Why can't he be you
F#                                 G#m             
He never fails to call and tell me I'm on his mind
G#m                                        F# 
And I'm lucky to have such a guy I hear it all the time
F#                                              B
And he does all the things that you would never do -oo
B           F#                C#  G#m              F# 
He loves me too  His love is true Why can't he be you
                  B                    F#
He's the not the one who dominants my mind and soul
F#             B                   
And I should love him so cause he loves me I know
F#       G#m             C#
But his kisses leave me cold 
C#            F#                               G#m      
He sends me flowers calls on the hour Just to prove his love
G#m                                              F#
And my friends say when he's around I'm all he speaks of
B           F#                C#  G#m              F# 
He loves me too  His love is true Why can't he be you
