Janice Rowe asked for this song. I was surprised a moment ago when I
found out it wasn't already in the archives. This is how I remember it.
I'm using the Nashville Numbering System for the chords so that it will
apply to any key, and everyone. If you need help with it, there are
three explanations at Cowpie/Resources/Lessons. My explanation is #3,
but all three are good. Why not read them all? If you need more help,
email Tom at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Great harmony in this song.
I BLESS THE DAY I FOUND YOU
I WANT TO STAY AROUND YOU
AND SO I BEG YOU, LET IT BE ME.
DON'T TAKE THIS HEAVEN FROM ONE
IF YOU MUST CLING TO SOMEONE
NOW AND FOREVER, LET IT BE ME.
EACH TIME WE MEET LOVE,
I FIND COMPLETE LOVE.
WITHOUT YOUR SWEET LOVE,
WHAT WOULD LIFE BE?
SO NEVER LEAVE ME LONELY,
TELL ME YOU LOVE ME ONLY.
AND THAT YOU'LL ALWAYS, LET IT BE ME
