Don Gibson – Sea Of Heartbreak lyrics

Sea of heartbreak
Johnny Cash

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
[chorus:] sea of heartbreak lost love and loneliness
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]
[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]

* --2--0----
