Because You Can't Be Mine
written and recorded by Merle Haggard

What makes something you can't have always look so good
C G7
Why does something out of reach seem so fine
What makes you thrill me more than any girl I know
C G7 C
I guess it's just because you can't be mine

G7 C F C
Why can't I be contented with what belongs to me
And be satisfied with what's already mine
What makes a stolen moment such a precious thing
C G7 C
I guess it's just because you can't be mine

What makes me always want a woman I can't have
C G7
Why does someone else's silver always shine
My passion rises every time you come around
C G7 C
And I guess it's just because you can't be mine

Repeat #2

Although it wasn't as popular as many others, it's an excellent song that received few if any spins from Disc Jockeys. We miss a lot of good songs that record labels use as fillers, unless we own the record (CD), we probable won't ever hear it. Copy Because You Can't Be Mine lyrics and chords to help you learn to play and sing it.
