How Close They Must Be
Recorded by Porter Wagoner and Dolly Parton
Written by Porter Wagoner
[3/4 time]

C G7 C
On a park bench one sunny afternoon
G7 C
Sat a young boy and a girl about seventeen
C7 F
As we stood so closely by watched them hold each other's hands
G7 C
On their faces love had written we're making plans

Then he said to her you're my guiding light
D7 G7
Then she said to him you make my whole world seem so bright
Then we saw their books of Braille and that neither one could see
G7 C
And I thought how close they must be

G7 C
Such tenderness my eyes have never seen
G7 C
Two young lovers both just in their teens
Though their world gives them no light
They see much more than you and me
G7 C
Don't you know how close they must be

Then a car stopped just a few steps away
D7 G7
And a voice said Jim and Jeannie it's time to go
C C7
With their hands still clutched so tight
Helping each other to the car
G7 C
Can you imagine just how close they are
G7 F C
Don't you know how close they must b--e
