Four Walls

Words & Music by Marvin Moore & George Campbell
Recorded by Jim Reeves, 1957

C                                Dm
Out where the bright lights are glowing,

       Dm7          G7          C
You're drawn like a moth to a flame.

C                    C7          F
You laugh while the wine's over-flowing,

      C          G7          C       G - G/A -  G/B
While I sit and whisper your name.

C              Dm      G     G7      C     G - G/A -  G/B

Four walls to hear me, four walls to see.
C      C7 F               C      G7    C

Four walls too near me, closing in on me.

Sometimes I ask why I'm waiting,
But my walls have nothing to say.
I'm made for love, not for hating,
So here where you left me I'll stay.

Repeat Refrain:

One night with you is like heaven,
and so while I'm walking the floor,
I'll listen for steps in the hallway,
and wait for your knock on my door.

Repeat Refrain: (sing twice)
