Capo 3rd fret

Standard (EADGBE)

Verse 1

They asked how I knew,

my true love was true, oh, oh.

I of course replied:

"Something here inside, cannot be denied".


Verse 2

They said, some day you’ll find

all whose love are blind, oh, oh.

When your heart’s on fire,

You must realize, smoke gets in your eyes.



So I chaffed them and gaily laughed,

to think they could doubt my love.

Yet today, my love has flown away,

I am without my love.

Verse 3

Now laughing friends deride,

Tears I cannot hide, oh, oh.

So I smile and say:

“When a lovely flame dies,

Smoke gets in your eyes.


in your eyes

Smoke gets in your eyes

Smoke gets in your eyes
