DON'T IT MAKE MY BROWN EYES BLUE (Richard Leigh)
------------------------------------------------
[Each chord is half of a 4/4 measure]

C  Am  Dm7  G7  C  Am  Dm7  G7
[intro]

C             Am     Dm7                G7
   Don't know when       I've been so blue
C             Am7         Bm7-5  E7
   Don't know what's come over you
Am              C/G       D7/F#   D7
   You've found someone new
    F                Em7        F      G7
And don't it make my brown eyes blue

I'll be fine when you're gone
I'll just cry all night long
Say it isn't true
    F                F/G        C      C
And don't it make my brown eyes blue

Am            Em7        F                C
   Tell me no secrets,     tell me some lies
Am            Em7                F     C
   Give me no reasons, give me     alibis
Am             Em7           F          C
   Tell me you love me and don't let me cry
Dm7       Em        F             F/G
   Say anything but don't say goodbye

I didn't mean to treat you bad
Didn't know just what I had
But honey now I do
    F                Em7         F                Em7
And don't it make my brown eyes, don't it make my brown eyes
F                F/G        C       Am   Dm7   G7
Don't it make my brown eyes blue.

[Repeat the last four measures for as long as you want, then end on C
or play the intro over and over and then end on C.]

Here's a little bit of tab for the intro; the spacing/timing is CORRECT.
Fill in your own chords and bass and hammer-ons and stuff...

  C           Am           Dm7         G7
E ----0-3---0-------------|------------------------|
B ------------1-----------|------1---1-------------|
G ----------------2-------|----2-------2---0-------|
  +     +     +     +      +     +     +     +

Thanks for posting this. I love this song. I play it with the capo on 4 so that I can sing it. It's too low for me otherwise.

The original song is in F#, so for these chords you would need to put a capo on the 6th fret, but the progression seems to be pretty much right.
