The World You Left Behind
recorded by Jim Reeves
written by Alex Zanetis
I try to sleep to kill the pain 
When I wake it's still the same
          G                             D7
Cause I'm living in this world you left behind
Just like a broken piece of glass 
You have swept me aside to pass
        G                       D7               G
Leaving shattered dreams with a lonely heart and mind
Well here I go again (Here I go again)
It's just like yesterday (Just like yesterday)
The pain is deep within
My heart to stay
I'm just a fool to sit and cry
Wasting years before I die
In this lonely world
     D7             G
This world you left behind
Repeat # 3 & 4
