Don't Take Your Love From Me

Words & Music by Henry Nemo
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.

While the Four Aces failed to reach the Top 100 with their version, this song had charted at least twice previously. Glenn Gray reached #26 in 1944, and The Three Suns did even better, reaching #21 in 1953.
