F Gm Gm FI Fcan hear the sDmoft breathing ofB♭ the girl thaAmt I love, As she lFies here besGmide me aslCeep with the night, And her hFair, in a fDmine mist flB♭oats on my pAmillow, ReflFecting the gGmlow of the wB♭intCer moonliFght.
F Gm Gm FShe is sFoft, she is wDmarm, but my B♭heart remains heAmavy, And I waFtch as her brGmeasts gently rCise, gently fall, For I kFnow with the fiDmrst light of dB♭awn I'll be lAmeaving, And toniFght will be Gmall I have lB♭eft to recaFll.
F Gm Gm FOh, wFhat have I dDmone, wB♭hy have I dAmone it, I've commFitted a cGmrime, I've bCroken the law, For tweFnty-five dDmollars and pB♭ieces of Amsilver, I heFld up and rGmobbed a hB♭ard liquor sFtore.
F Gm Gm FMy lFife seems unrDmeal, my cB♭rime an ilAmlusion, A scFene badly wGmritten in wChich I must play, Yet I kFnow as I gDmaze at my yB♭oung love besAmide me, The moFrning is jGmust a few B♭houCrs aFway.
