Tomb Of The Unknown Love

Höfundur lags: Michael Smotherman Flytjandi: Kenny Rogers Sent inn af: Anonymous

[C]One time I drove to see a girl across the country
One night as I was driving [G7]through New [C]Mexico

I had the windows wide open it was cold and I was crying
And I laid her letter [G7]on the [C]radio


Then I stopped outside of Tahoe through this tiny mining town
At a diner to [G7]refill for the [C]ride

And in the wind I heard this crying like a heart broke right in two
I turned my collar [G7]up and went [C]inside


Well I saw this smiling waitress joshing friendly with these truckers
They´d give her pats and [G7]she´d give them [C]shoves

I said miss what´s that awful crying everybody laughed and said
It´s the tomb of the [G7]unknown [C]love

And then they [F]pointed out the window to this [C]stone
All by [F]itself beneath the tree beside the [C]hill
And on that [F]winter night I read these words [C]alone
These [G7]words that are haunting me still it said

[C]Here lies a young man struck down in his prime
By the awesome burning [G7]power of [C]love

He couldn´t stand this true love cheating so he shot the girl down
They hung him from that [G7]tree up [C]above
I know that [G7]local folks say it´s the wind
I know it´s crying from the tomb of the unknown [C]love


So I drove on to my destination
I did the job my heart co[G7]mmanded of [C]me  

And when the sheriff sirens came I didn´t even try to fight
They counted ten I [G7]came out at [C]three


So now I guess tomorrow morning warden reads some kind of paper
How I´m gonna pay the state for [G7]what I´ve [C]done

Hey then they´ll put the shackles on me and we´ll take a little walk
They won´t have to drag me cause it´s [G7]said and [C]done

And maybe [F]someday they can put me up a [C]stone
All by it[F]self beneath the tree beside the [C]hill
And lovers [F]everywhere can come and read [C]along
These [G7]words that will give them a chill and it´ll say

[C]Here lies a young man struck down in his prime
By the awesome burning [G7]power of [C]love

He couldn´t stand this true love cheating so he shot the girl down
They hung him from that [G7]tree up [C]above
I know that [G7]local folks say it´s the wind
I know it´s crying from the tomb of the unknown [C]love
