The Longer The Waiting chords - Josh Turner

Josh Turner Lyrics


            Intro C F Am G (2x)

        C                       F           C 	 
Oh, the longer the waiting, the sweeter the kiss
                          F           G
It's better my darling, I promise you this
    C                         F           Dm
The next time I hold you, I'm not letting go
         C                    F         Am
Will you wait for me darling, I need to know


Well, you know I'm a sailor and tomorrow we sail
It's a hard way of living but I know it well
And if I surrender my life to the sea
You can marry another it's alright with me

(Chorus 1)
          C                 F              Am 
Though we won't be together again 'til the spring
     C           F              G
Just imagine the treasures I'll bring


Come lay with me, stay with me, soon I'll be gone
I will remember you all winter long And when I return to the one that I miss Oh, the longer the waiting, the sweeter the kiss The sweeter the kiss (Chorus 2) C F Am When the mornings are warm and the valleys are green C F G I'll come back from wherever I've been C F C Oh, the longer the waiting, the sweeter the kiss F G It's better my darling, I promise you this C F Dm The next time I hold you, I'm not letting go C F Am I will give up the ocean forever, I know C Forever I know (Instrumental) C F C C F G C F Dm C F Am Oh, the longer the waiting, the sweeter the kiss It's better my darling, I promise you this The next time I hold you, I'm not letting go I will give up the ocean forever, I know Forever, I know (Instrumental) C F C C F G C F Dm C F Am (until fade)
