And raise her vale

But right now she up and cry'n
        Bsus2
And the truth is that he dont mind

As he kisses her good night
                  Bsus2
And she says her prayers


    A                E
He lays down there beside her
         Bsus2              E
'Til her eyes are finally closed
          A               E
And just watch'n her it breaks his heart
