When I Was Yours

Song Author Paul Kennerley og Emmylou Harris Performer: Emmylou Harris Submitted by: Anonymous
[G]In a lonely room waiting [C]for the night to [G]fall
I hear your voice in every [D7]whip-poor-will that calls
And it takes me [G]back to a better [C]place and a sweeter [G]time
When I was [D7]yours and you were [G]mine

As the shadows fall and the light grows [C]dim I see your f[G]ace  
I Close my eyes and feel the [D7]warmth of your embrace
As I  long for y[G]ou and for all those [C]days when hearts en[G]twined
When I was [D7]yours and you were [G]mine

[D7]When I was yours and you were mine
[C]A truer love in Caro[G]line
Ever waltzed across these hills and danced beneath the [D7]stars
[C]Life was sweeter than the flowers [G]blooming on the vines
When I was [D7]yours and you were [G]mine


So I lay my head
On a pillow [C]soft and stained with [G]tears
I cry for you through all the [D7]long and lonely years
But when I [G]dream till the morning [C]suns comes to [G]shine
Then I'll be [D7]yours and you'll be [G]mine
Yes I will go back to a better [C]place and a sweeter [G]time
When I was [D7]yours and you were [C]m-i-n[G]-e  

In a lonely room waiting for the night to fall
I hear your voice in every whip-poor-will that calls
And it takes me back to a better place and a sweeter time
When I was yours and you were mine

As the shadows fall and the light grows dim I see your face
I Close my eyes and feel the warmth of your embrace
As I  long for you and for all those days when hearts entwined
When I was yours and you were mine

When I was yours and you were mine
A truer love in Caroline
Ever waltzed across these hills and danced beneath the stars
Life was sweeter than the flowers blooming on the vines
When I was yours and you were mine

So I lay my head
On a pillow soft and stained with tears
I cry for you through all the long and lonely years
But when I dream till the morning suns comes to shine
Then I'll be yours and you'll be mine
Yes I will go back to a better place and a sweeter time
When I was yours and you were m-i-n-e
