Pouges – A pair of brown eyes                                                     

One[G] summer evening drunk to hell I [Am] sat there nearly [C] lifeless,
An[G] old man in the corner sang where the [C] water lilies[Am] grow,
And[G] on the juke box Johnny sang[Am] about a thing called[C] love,
And it's[G] how are you[Am] kid,[C]whats your[G] name,
And[C] how would you bloody[Am] know.

In[G] blood and death 'neath the screaming sky,
I[Am] lay down on the[C] ground,
And the[G] arms and legs of other men,
Were[C] scattered all a[Am]round,
Some[G] cursed some prayed some[C] prayed then [G]cursed,
Then[C] prayed and bled some[Am] more,
And the[G] only thing that[Am] I could[C] see,
Was a[G] pair of brown[Am] eyes that were[C] looking at [G]me,
But when we got[Am] back labelled[C] parts one to[G] three,
[G] There was no[Am] pair of brown eyes[C] waiting for[G] me.
[G] And a rovin'a[Am] rovin'a [C] rovin'I'll[G] go,
For a[C] pair of brown[Am] eyes

Solo. C,C Am,C       C,C,D,G
I [G] looked at him he looked at me,all I [Am] could do was[C] hate him,
While[G]  Ray and Philomena sang of [C] my elusive[Am]  dreams,
I [G] saw the streams the rolling hils, [Am]  where his brown eyes were[C] waiting,
And I [G]  thought[Am]  about a[C]  pair of brown [G] eyes that[C]  waited once for[Am] me.
So[G]  drunk to hell I left the place sometimes[Am]  crawling sometimes[C]  walking,
A [G] hungry sound came across the breeze so I[C]  gave the walls a [Am]  talking.
And I [G] heard the sound of long ago, [Am] from the old [C] can*l,
And the[G]  birds were[Am]  whistling[C] in the[G]  trees,
Where[C] the wind was gently[Am] laughing.
And[G] a rovin,a[Am] rovin a[C] rovin I'll[G] go  x3
 for a[C] pair of brown[Am] eyes,
For a[C] pair of [D]brown[G] eyes

Solo. C,C Am,C       C,C,D,G
And[G] a rovin,a[Am] rovin a[C] rovin I'll[G] go  x3
 for a[C] pair of brown[Am] eyes,
For a[C] pair of [D]brown[G] eyes
