The Storm
recorded by Jim Reeves
written by Alex Zanetis and Jim Reeves

C             G7           C
That kiss you gave me this morning
                  G7         C
Was just the calm before the storm
  F          G7                C
I know in my heart that you're leaving me
    F              G7
For someone else's own
C                   G7            C
The storm sometimes comes without warning
                     G7        C
So I'm thankful that I was forewarned
   F          G7        C
It gives me a chance to speak to my heart
       F     G7             C
And to brace myself for the storm
G7                    C
The storm is coming I can feel it
    G7                   C
And soon we'll be driven apart
       G7                       C
You'll rush to the arms of your new love
D7                 G7
Deserting a broken heart
C              G7               C
If there was a way I could hold you
                    G7         C
With words that are tender and warm
    F        G7            C
I'd rise and challenge the oncoming waves
    F          G7            C
And defend our love from the storm
    F        G7            C
I'd rise and challenge the oncoming waves
    F          G7            C
And defend our love from the storm

Classic Country Music Lyrics home | Jim Reeves lyrics

All recording artists have recorded great songs that didn't chart for them, this is my opinion, I have found many of these songs are better than the ones released for singles. If you didn't buy the album, chances are you never heard some of these songs. This one is very pretty, copy The Storm lyrics and chords to help you learn this fine old country song.
