Old Flames Can't Hold A Candle To You
recorded by Merle Haggard
written by Pebe Sebert and Hugh Moffatt

C                                             F
Downtown tonight I saw an old friend  someone who
G7                                            C
I used to take comfort from long before I met you
                                  C7        F
I caught a spark from her eyes  a forgotten desire
     G7                                             C
With a word or a touch  I could have rekindled that fire
But old flames can't hold a candle to you
G7                                     C
No one can light up the night like you do
                               C7           F
Flickering embers of love I've known one or two
    G7                                C
But old flames can't hold a candle to you
Sometimes at night  I think of old lovers I've known
  G7                                              C
I remember how holding them helped me not feel so alone
                                         C7           F
Then I feel you beside me and even their memories are gone
     G7                                             C
Like stars in the night  lost in the sweet light of dawn
repeat #2
