Afraid To Sleep 
Recorded by Roy Orbison
Written by Jack Adkins, Buddy Blue, William E. Gilmore

G Am
The night is still the wind is chilled
G Bm D7
I hear the rain falling on my window pane
G Am
Can't close my eyes afraid to sleep
G Bm D7
Cause when I do I would only dream of you

C D7 C D7
I'm trying to forget that we ever met
C D7 G
But how can I forget and dream of you

C F# Dm
Afraid to sleep because I'd dream of you
C Em D7
Afraid to sleep because I'd wake up feeling blue
F Fm C Em Am
If I stay awake forever we'd never be together
D7 G C D7
So I'll close my eyes and go ahead and dream
C D7 C D7
Sweet dreams sweet dreams
