Before I Die
recorded by Jim Reeves
written by
Jim Carroll
G D7 G C
No need to say you're sorry no need to feel ashamed
G A7 D7
If I'm not the one you love don't feel you're to blame
G D7 G C
I don't deny it hurts me and this pain is hard to hide
G D7 G
But at least I lived a little while before I died

I lived long enough to know the sweet thrill of your lips
A7 D7
I knew happiness right down to my fingertips
You'll always be a part of me though you can't be mine
G D7 G
At least I lived a little while before I died

D7 G C
Don't ask me to forget you cause you mean too much to me
G A7 D7
I couldn't even if I tried too many memories
G D7 G C
My yesterdays were happy days and each memory's locked inside
G D7 G
At least I lived a little while before I died

Repeat #2
