(Intro) 

Abmaj7   Fm   Cm   G7



(Verse 1)

Cm          Cm#7     Cm7             Cm6
 Rain falls   upon a sleepy southern town
 
Abmaj7           Fm      Cm             G7
 The midnight moon   burning brightly

Cm             Cm#7    Cm7                 Cm6      
 Memories rush in          like a river forlorn

Abmaj7      Db           G7 
 As you lay sleeping without me 

Abmaj7   Fm            G7        Cm
 Highway song keeps me   rolling on

Abmaj7   Db       G7
 Still I long for you 



(Chorus)

C      C/Bb
 Des—demona,
       
C/A     C/G 
 I will be    

   F            Gbdim7
 your only one
  
    G
 Oh yeah



(Verse 2) 

Cm         Cm#7     Cm7          Cm6
 I make my living    calling out my pain

Abmaj7             Fm          Cm         G7
 Trying to make it through    another day

Cm              Cm#7    Cm7                 Cm6
 Arms reach for me        on the wind I can feel it

Abmaj7     Db              G7
 They're a thousand miles away 

Abmaj7        Fm          G7                       Cm
 Yours eyes remind me  of everything beautiful and blue

Abmaj7              Db         G7
 and I won't feel myself till I'm with you 



(Chorus)

C      C/Bb
 Des—demona,
       
C/A     C/G 
 I will be

 Oh yeah

(Verse 3) 

Cm         Cm#7    Cm7                  Cm6
 So hold a candle     till the darkness fades
 
Abmaj7      Fm         Cm           G7
 Night time sleeps but not for long

Cm           Cm#7                    Cm7                      Cm6
 My heart is pounding like the ocean   my soul's empty as the sky
 
Abmaj7          Db                 G7
 But I know someday I'll be coming home 
  
Abmaj7     Fm        G7              Cm
 Time goes by in the twinkling of an eye

Abmaj7   Db       G7
 Still I burn for you

 your only one
