1. The lonesome Texas sun was setting low,

           G                                                    C

    and in the rearview mirror I watched it go.

             Am              Em                          D

    I can still see the wind in her golden hair,

       Am                           Em                       C

    I close my eyes for a moment, I'm still there.

 

           D                                   Em         D      C

The bluest eyes in Texas are haunting me tonight,

               D                                                 Em        D          C

like the stars that fill the midnite sky, her memory fills my mind.

                            G                                           Em      D        C

Where did I go wrong ? Did I wait too long, or can I make it right ?

          G                                    Em         D      C

The bluest eyes in Texas are haunting me tonight !

 

        G                                        C

2. Another town, another hotel room,

        G                                                   C

    another dream that ended way too soon.

    Am                  Em                     D

    Left me lonely way before the dawn,

   Am                         Em                   C

  searching for the strength to carry on.   

 

+  CHORUS  

 

+  G - C -  G - C

 

          Am                        Em                       D

+  For every heart you break you pay the price,

             Am                   Em                C

    but I can't forget the tears in her blue eyes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

           D                                   Em         D      C

The bluest eyes in Texas are haunting me tonight,

               D                                                 Em        D          C

like the stars that fill the midnite sky, her memory fills my mind.

                            G                                                 Em      D        C

Where did I go wrong ? Did I wait too long ? How can I make it right ?

          G                                    Em         D      C

The bluest eyes in Texas are haunting me tonight !

 

              G                                    Em         D      C
