Tomb Of The Unknown Love Recorded by Kenny Rogers Written by Michael Smotherman
C One time I drove to see a girl across the country G7 C One night as I was driving through New Mexico
I had the windows wide open it was cold and I was crying G7 C And I laid her letter on the radio
Then I stopped outside of Tahoe through this tiny mining town G7 C At a diner to refill for the ride
And in the wind I heard this crying like a heart broke right in two G7 C I turned my collar up and went inside
Well I saw this smiling waitress joshing friendly with these truckers G7 C They’d give her pats and she’d give them shoves
I said miss what’s that awful crying everybody laughed and said G7 C It’s the tomb of the unknown love
F C And then they pointed out the window to this stone F C All by itself beneath the tree beside the hill F C And on that winter night I read these words alone G7 These words that are haunting me still it said
C Here lies a young man struck down in his prime G7 C By the awesome burning power of love
He couldn’t stand this true love cheating so he shot the girl down G7 C They hung him from that tree up above G7 I know that local folks say it’s the wind C I know it’s crying from the tomb of the unknown love
So I drove on to my destination G7 C I did the job my heart commanded of me
And when the sheriff sirens came I didn’t even try to fight G7 C They counted ten I came out at three
So now I guess tomorrow morning warden reads some kind of paper G7 C How I’m gonna pay the state for what I’ve done
Hey then they’ll put the shackles on me and we’ll take a little walk G7 C They won’t have to drag me cause it’s said and done
F C And maybe someday they can put me up a stone F C All by itself beneath the tree beside the hill F C And lovers everywhere can come and read along G7 These words that will give them a chill and it’ll say
