I Can See Arkansas 
Recorded by Anne Murray
Written by Wood Arnold Newton and James Nihan

There's a natural wonder between us
But it doesn't seem natural to me
That you can walk away from the love we made
Here in Tennessee

Leave everything that we worked for
To start another life
I saw you drive across the Memphis bridge
G7 C
But I don't believe my eyes

I can see Arkansas across the Mississippi
G7 C C7
I can see a big river barge headin' down to New Orleans
I can see the cotton fields on the other side
Fm C
And the sun going down again
F G7
Oh I can see Arkansas but I still don't see
F G7 C
Why the love we had should end

If it proved how much I love you
I'd swim this ol' river tonight
I'd bet my soul against the undertow
For the chance to hold you tight

But there's more than a river between us
And I can't swim that far
And as hard as I try I just can't drown
G7 C
The memories of where you are

Repeat #3 x2 Oh I can...
