When I Was Yours
recorded by  Emmylou Harris
written by Paul Kennerley and Emmylou Harris
                                     
G                        C                G
In a lonely room waiting for the night to fall
                           D7
I hear your voice in every whip-poor-will that calls
                G                C                   G
And it takes me back to a better place and a sweeter time
           D7                 G
When I was yours and you were mine
 
                                        C               G
As the shadows fall and the light grows dim I see your face
                             D7
I Close my eyes and feel the warmth of your embrace
                G                    C                  G
As I  long for you and for all those days when hearts entwined
           D7                 G
When I was yours and you were mine
 
D7
When I was yours and you were mine
C                   G
A truer love in Caroline
                                                       D7
Ever waltzed across these hills and danced beneath the stars
C                                 G
Life was sweeter than the flowers blooming on the vines
           D7                 G
When I was yours and you were mine   
 
 
So I lay my head
            C                     G
On a pillow soft and stained with tears
                              D7
I cry for you through all the long and lonely years
           G                      C             G
But when I dream till the morning suns comes to shine
             D7                  G
Then I'll be yours and you'll be mine
                               C                   G
Yes I will go back to a better place and a sweeter time
           D7                 C    G
When I was yours and you were m-i-n-e
