Arms Length Away chords - Sammy Kershaw

Sammy Kershaw Lyrics





Hi Greg - An interesting story behind this - my husband, who had 
submitted another Sammy Kershaw song to Cowpie, received an e-mail from 
a fellow who was getting married to his "best friend" in a week, and 
wondered if he would do him the favour of transcribing the music, as he 
wanted to play this song to his bride on their wedding day.  Not wanting 
to twart true love, (and having some background in piano) I took over 
the job for my man, and am now sending it to you for your achives.

Piano/Guitar Intro:  Am/Dm/Gm/Bb/Gm/Bb/F

How (Bb) long have we been
the (F) very best of friends
I've (Bb) always heard you (C) say
I could (F) tell you anything
Oh the (Gm) times I made you (Gdim) laugh
the (F) times I dried your (Dm) tears
Through the (Gm) good and bad
I've (Bb) always been right (C) here

Chorus:
An (Bb) arms length away, right in (F) front of your face
This (Gm) close to your (C) lips, right at (F) your fingertips
That one (Am) true love you're (Dm) dreaming of
Darling (Gm) what (C) would you (Bb) say
If I (Gm) told you it's an (Bb) arms length (F) away

(Lead into verse:  Gm/Bb/F)

For so (Bb) long I've longed to hold you
oh the (F) nights I almost told you
I (Bb) stopped myself, (C) afraid
of (F) just what you might say
And the (Gm) love that you have (Gdim) searched for
that (F) seems so out of (Dm) reach
Have you (Gm) ever stopped
to think it might be (C) me

(Chorus)

Instrumental  Break:  (Bb/F/Gm/C/F)

That one (Am) true love you're (Dm) dreaming of
Darling (Gm) what (C) would you (Bb) say
If I (Gm) told you it's an (Bb) arms length (F) away

(Repeat above)
