Intro
“um hm mmmm mmm…”

G     C     F      C     G

Verse 1
          G
Oh, I wish that you would call
                          C
We have not spoken since last fall
         F                          C                                     G
And that smoky conversation's coming home
                 G
Do I just read between your lines
                          C
Yeah could be this winter wine
     F                             C
So sweet upon my tongue tonight
                                          G
It recalls your tender eyes


Chorus

                      C
And I need more than a whisper
                  F
So much more than a whisper
                C
It takes more than a whisper
       D               Dsus4  G 
To wake this weary fool
                       C
Oh give me more than a whisper
                  F
If you're saying I love you
                           C                                 D Dsus4          G
'cause it's the whispers that I've never understood

C

Verse 2
                G
And it's snowing up in the northlands
                       C
I read your warm words from the plains
                    F                        C  
While the poets say that I should never
                                             G 
Be thinking of you this way
                           G
They say that I misread your lines
                                   C
‘cause I've been lonely all my life

                     F                                  C
And I'd be reaching for some silver
                                                              G
And leaving my heart out in the fire


Chorus


C
And I need more than a whisper
                  F
So much more than a whisper
                C
It takes more than a whisper
       D               Dsus4   G 
To wake this weary fool
                       C
Oh give me more than a whisper
                  F
If you're saying I love you
                           C                                 D Dsus4          G
'cause it's the whispers that I've never understood

Instrumental break with humming

G     C     F      C     G




Verse 3

                     G
Well I will drink my winter wine
                      C
When I get home I'll change my mind
                F                         C
I'll only whisper that I love you
                                             G
In those smoky bars at night
                               G
And though the poets say I'm lonely
                                C
There's still this woman here inside
                 F                       C
And I've never been a fool
                                                    G
When my heart was on the line


Chorus

C
‘cause I need more than a whisper
                  F
So much more than a whisper
                C
It takes more than a whisper
       D                Dsus4  G 
To wake this weary fool
                       C
Oh give me more than a whisper
                  F
If you're saying I love you
                           C                                 D Dsus4          G
'cause it's the whispers that I've never understood

(humming over chord progression like intro and break)
G     C     F      C     G
