SEA OF HEARTBREAK
Johnny Cash

D
D Bm * G A
The lights in the harbor don't shine for me
D Bm * G A (n.c.)
I'm like a lost ship adrift on the sea
D A
[chorus:] SEA OF HEARTBREAK lost love and loneliness
D G
mem'ries of your caress so divine, how I wish
D A (n.c.)
you were mine again my dear; I'm on this sea of tears

Sea of heartbreak

Oh how did I lose you oh where did I fail
Why did you leave me always to sail

[repeat chorus]
G D
[bridge:] Oh what I'd give just to sail back to shore
G E7
back to your arms once more

Oh come to my rescue oh come here to me
Take me and keep me away from the sea

[repeat chorus]
