THE SECOND LOVER'S SONG Townes Van Zandt Dm C Dm C You awakin' next to me, tears splashed 'cross the sun Dm C Dm G You whisper soft to me that I ain't the only one Em Am Em Am To breathe your yella' hair, caress your bosom fair. (raven hair) Dm C Dm G Do you think I really care, do you think it matters? Dm C Dm C What do your feelin's mean, do you think I'd love you more, Dm C Dm G If you stood pure and clean of those you'd known before? Em Am Em Am Would your words be sweeter then, upon November's wind Dm C Dm G If you began again, could your smile be softer? Am Em Am G Would your eyes more brightly shine, would your laughter be so tender, Am Em Am G If you'd been only mine for as long as you remember? I don't want tears from you, don't build your love on shame. All that we've done is through and all we can do remains. My lady can't you see, I love not jealously? But for all you are to me and all you'll be tomorrow.
