A Pair of Brown Eyes Chords

[Verse 1]

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


[Verse 2]
(same as verse 1 chords)

In blood and death 'neath a screaming 
sky
I lay down on the ground
And the arms and legs of other men
Were scattered all around
Some cursed some prayed some prayed then
cursed
Then prayed and bled some more
And the only thing that I could see


[Chorus]

       G             Am          
Was a pair of brown eyes that was 
  C        G
looking at me
    G             Am             C     
But when we got back labelled parts one 
  G
to three
       G             Am             C  
There was no pair of brown eyes waiting 
     G
for me
        G       Am       C           G
And a rovin' a rovin' a rovin' I'll go
        G       Am       C           G
And a rovin' a rovin' a rovin' I'll go
        G       Am       C           G
And a rovin' a rovin' a rovin' I'll go
        C             Am
For a pair of brown eyes
        C      D      G
For a pair of brown eyes
