The Great Divide
Recorded by Gene Watson
Written by John Royce Lindley and Randy Bruce Traywick

G C D7 G
It's time for us to settle up and go our separate ways
Em G D7
No one takes the blame but we both have to pay
Everything that once was ours now is yours or mine
G D7 G
I guess we finally made it across the great divide

And it sure hurts like hell to see you walk away
D7 G
And there's nothing I can do to make you want to stay
And no one but you and I can know how hard we tried
G D7 G
But there's no turning back we've crossed the great divide

C D7 G
Now we're standing in the doorway of a house we made a home
Em G D7
And it seems so cold and empty now that all our love is gone
We’ll take one last look together before we say goodbye
G D7 G
Since we finally made it across the great divide

Repeat #2

C G D7 C G
There's just no turning back we've crossed the great divide
