You Tied A Love Knot In My Heart

capo 4th

    D                    D      

1.        You tied a love knot in my heart, dear,

                      G                          D

    when you said you'd be my bride,

                                                           E                   A7

    oh, how well I remember as we strolled side by side.

                          D                                         G                         D

    Leaves were falling all around us, roses withered on the ground,

                     D                                                          D - A                  D

    you tied a love knot in my heart, dear, that can ne.......ver be unwound.

 

+  D - G - D      - D - A - D

 

                     D                                              G                      D

2. The only thing that I have left now is this little string I've found,

                                                             E                      A7

    with a little love knot in it, that she held tight in her hand.

               D                                                 G                      D

    As I stood there by your bedside, as I looked into your eyes,

                      D                                                         D - A                D

    you tied a love knot in my heart, dear, that can ne.......ver be untied.

 

+  D - G - D      - D - A - D

 

                      D

3. There's a heart tonight that's lonely,

                     G                           D

    there's a heart tonight that's sad

                                                                     E             A7

    for God has took you from me, the best pal I ever had.

                             D                                               G                        D

    She's gone to sing up in heaven, God needed her there by His side,

                      D                                                         D - A                D

    you tied a love knot in my heart, dear, that can ne.......ver be untied.
