Roy Orbison (R. Orbison / Bill Dees)
My lovely woman child,
G D Em
I found you out running wild with someone new.
G Em A A7 D
You've been untrue, and ev'rybody knows we're through.
But I can't say goodbye to you,
no matter what you do.
My heart won't let you go,
C D G
although I know you go with someone new, I think of you.
G C F
I think of how you kiss, your tenderness.
D G C G C
With all of this, I miss the way you say, good-night.
Bittersweet your kisses,
F7 C C7
when my heart still misses, the way that things used to be.
But I know you're strong for, other arms you long for,
F7 C Bb
and you can never come back to me
Not just for yesterday, tonight or tomorrow.
Dm C F D F D
Ah, but forever, I'll hear you say goodnight, goodnight.
G A G D
Goodnight turned out to be a lie,
G A G D
and I can't help it if I cry.
Em A A7 A D F D
Goodnight, my love, sleep tight, my love, goodnight.
