Tonight Carmen
Written and recorded by Marty Robbins

G       G7    G   G7 G C
Carmen  Carmen  Car-m -e-n 
Tonight I am aching my body is shaking 
Tonight Carmen's coming back home 
Tonight there'll be no room for tears in my bedroom 
  G7                         C        
Tonight Carmen's coming back home 

Tonight as I stand here I notice my hand here 
       C7               F 
Is trembling as never before 
My feelings I can't hide resistance has all died 
My pride will rush outside 
               G7                C
The moment she walks through the door 
The lips that have kissed her that's loved her and missed her 
Are lips that have cursed her at night
In anguish and torment I've cursed as the night went 
G7                               C
From darkness till dawn's golden light 

I've thought of just taking these two hands and breaking 
         C7             F
The body I'm waiting to touch
I find while I'm waiting there's no time for hating
While anticipating 
          G7             C
The woman I've wanted so much 
I've placed pretty flowers to brighten the hours 
I've put brand new sheets on the bed 
I'm nervous I'm trembling recalling remembering 
    G7                      C
The way that she tosses her head 

I've given much thought to the fact that I ought to 
     C7                   F
Have more control over my life 
How can I fight it how can I deny it 
There's no way to hide it
                G7          C 
The love that I have for my wife 
G       G7     G   G7 G C
Carmen  Carmen Car-m -e-n
