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

Repeat #5
