Recorded by The Four Aces, 1969
E E9 A AM7 A9 A E7 E7/9 Tear a star from out the sky, and the sky feels blue; E7 E7/9 E7 E7/6 E7 E7/6 A A6 Tear a petal from a rose, and the rose weeps, too. A A9 Cdim B7 D9 Bm7-5 Bm7 Bm7/E Take your heart away from mine, and mine will sure-ly break; D9 Bm7-5 Bm7 Bm7/E A Gdim Edim E7 My life is yours to make, so, please, keep the spark away. E E9 A AM7 A9 A E7 E7/9 Would you take the wings from birds so that they can't fly? E7 E7/9 E7 E7/6 E7 7/6 E7 A AM7 A7 Would you take the o - cean's roar and leave just a sigh? D6 D9 Bm7-5 E7 AM7 F#m C#m7-5 F#7 Oh, this your heart won't let you do, this is what I beg of you -- Dalt D9 Bm7-5 E7 A Don't take your love from me.
