Tell Lorrie I Love Her
"TELL LORRIE I LOVE HER" Keith Whitley from the album _Greatest_Hits_ written by Keith Whitley This is a beautiful song that Keith recorded at his home studio in 1987. He fingerpicks the song, but I can't figure out the pattern he uses. If you know how to do it, please let me know. Anyway, here's the chords. Listen to the recording to get the timing down correctly. 1st verse: G If I were alone in the desert C G Without a drink of water around C G On my knees and hands in that white, scorching sand D With the hot Sahara sun beating down G If I could be granted my wishes C G If anything I want could come true C G I know that it might sound funny D G But here's what I'd want you to do Chorus: C Tell Lorrie I love her G Tell Lorrie I need her D Tell her everything would be okay G If I could just see her C Tell Lorrie I love her G Tell Lorrie I need her Am If I leave this old world D G Tell her she's the only girl for me 2nd verse: If I were adrift on the ocean A vessel with no sails or steam Floating aimlessly on and endless sea Hopelessly lost it would seem If all of the fish in the water Could echo my last dying plea I know you might not understand it But here's what I'd want it to be (chorus) If I leave this old world Tell her she's the only girl for me It's too bad Lorrie (Morgan) didn't believe him; if she had Keith Whitley might still be with us today.
