The Keeper of the Key
recorded by Wanda Jackson
written by Wynn Stewart and Harlan Howard

C                 F                   C
You have gone and yet  I'm still your prisoner
D7                                       G7
Though you're with your new love I'm not free
F                                    C
For you have placed a lock around my heart dear
F               G7            C
And you are the keeper of the key
F                            C
Love locked inside like mine just burns constantly
   D7                          G7
Oh darling please come back to me
      F                              C
We'll lock our hearts together for a lifetime
F                   G7            C
And God will be the keeper of the key
F                                  C
Only you can break the chains that bind me
D7                    G7
Only you can end my misery
   F                               C
No one else can dry the tears that blind me
F               G7            C
For you are the keeper of the key
repeat #2
