Loving Arms

Kris Kristofferson, Rita Coolidge   (up 3  G, C, D, Em)


Intro:  / G - - - / C – D - / x2


                   G (2)

If you could see me now

C (1)            D (1)             G (2)

     One who said that he’d rather roam

C (1)            D (1)                G (2)

     One who said he’d rather be alone

C (2)                D (1)            G (2)

     If you could only see me now.                 


                   G (2)

If I could hold you now (hold you now)  

C (1)               D (1)                  G (2)

      Just for a moment, if I could make you mine    

C (1)                D (1)                    G (2)

      Just for a while, turn back the hands of time

C (2)               D (1)            G (2)

       If I could only hold you now.                         


                        C (1)               D (1)

I’ve been too long in the wind

          G (1)               C (1)

Too long in the rain            

Am (1)       D (1)             G (1)  G7(1)                      

Takin’ any comfort that I can

   C (1)               D (1)

Lookin’ back and longin’ for

        G (1)               C (1)   

The freedom of my chains    

         Am (1)      D (1)           G (2)                        

And lying in your loving arms again.              


                   G (2)

If you could here me now (hear me now)

C (1)          D (1)                            G (2)

     Singing somewhere through the lonely night     

C (1)            D (1)                   G (2)      

      Dreaming of the arms that held me tight

C (1)                  D (1)             G (2)      

      If you could only hear me now
