The Echo Of Your Footsteps

Song Author Jenny Lou Carson Lyrics by: Jenny Lou Carson Performer: Faron Young Submitted by: Anonymous
[C]The day that you told me  you [F]wanted to be free
I [G7]agree with everything you had to [C]say  
But I'll confess I lied  and [F]darling how I cried
When the [G7]echo of your footsteps died [C]away

I [G7]thought our castle had a firm foun[C]dation
But [D7]all along was only made of [G7]clay   
[C]With aching heart I found it [F]crumbled to the ground
When the [G7]echo of your footsteps died [C]away

If I had only known  I'd [F]feel so all alone
I'd [G7]have begged down on my knees for you to [C]stay
The gate to paradise was  closed [F]before my eyes
When the [G7]echo of your footsteps died [C]away

No [G7]matter where you are  I wish you [C]well dear
And [D7]I'll ask God to bless you every[G7]day   
For [C]I cannot deny  [F]I bid my heart goodbye
When the [G7]echo of your footsteps died [C]away

The day that you told me  you wanted to be free
I agree with everything you had to say
But I'll confess I lied  and darling how I cried
When the echo of your footsteps died away

I thought our castle had a firm foundation
But all along was only made of clay
With aching heart I found it crumbled to the ground
When the echo of your footsteps died away

If I had only known  I'd feel so all alone
I'd have begged down on my knees for you to stay
The gate to paradise was  closed before my eyes
When the echo of your footsteps died away

No matter where you are  I wish you well dear
And I'll ask God to bless you everyday
For I cannot deny  I bid my heart goodbye
When the echo of your footsteps died away
