Close By Recorded by Patty Loveless Written by Bill Monroe and Winkle Van
G D7 G You've gone so far away my darling C Each time I think of you I cry G I'll press your picture to my bosom D7 G Then I'll feel that you're close by
D7 G The years have passed you've not returned dear C Now they say that you have died G But your soul will live forever D7 G Now I know you'll be close by
D7 G I saw you last while you were leaving C The tears from you I tried to hide G You took me in your arms and said dear D7 G Your memory I keep close by
D7 G They've buried you in a lonely graveyard C And a spot they've left beside G Now we'll sleep 'til Jesus calls us D7 G So that we can be close by
