Just Another Broken Heart

 

They stood on the beach one evening [G]
Out in the moonlight fair [G, D]
Twas a boy in the pride of manhood [G]
And a girl in beauty rare [C, D, G]

 

I never had thought that you loved me

An innocent look of surprise

Crept out from beneath her lashes

And into those deep brown eyes

 

Oh sir I was only flirting

Only a playing a part

Just another boy's life ruined

Just another broken heart

 

Sir I'm to be married this winter

Farewell and she gave me her hand

And drawing a robe around her

She left me alone on the sand

 

He goes with a crowd of pastors ?

Always bitter and cold

Just another boy grown weary

Just another boy grown old

 

 

There's a rose grows in your garden

White rose is the symbol of peace

And when I am dead little darling

Plant that rose at my head and my feet

 

Oh sir I was only flirting

Only a playing a part

Just another boy's life ruined

Just another broken heart

Many thanks to Travis Gillespie for the chords for this one.
