Old Flames Can't Hold A  Candle To You.
Merle Haggard.
Album: Kern River.

D                                            G
Downtown tonight I saw an old friend someone who,
  A                   A7        F#m          D
I use to take comfort from long before I met you,
    D                                         G
And I caught a spark in her eyes of forgotten desire,
           A                                           D
And with a word or a touch I could have rekindled that fire.

    F#m    D                      G   G/D G G/D
Old flames can't hold a candle to you,
A          A7                F#m      D
No one can light up my night like you do,
D                                            G
Flickering embers of love, I've known one or two,
    A                                 D
But old flames can't hold a candle to you.

Break C6 B7 Bb Gm C#6 Ab/C B6

Eb                                            Ab
Sometimes at night I think of old lovers I've known,
    Bb                   Bb7              Bb6     Eb
And remember how holding them made me not feel so alone,
Eb                                       Eb6          Ab
Then I feel you beside me and even their memories are gone,
         Bb                                            Eb
And like stars in the night lost in the sweet light of dawn.

    Bb     Eb                     Ab Ebmaj7 Ab6 Abmaj7
Old flames can't hold a candle to you.
Bb         Bb6   Bb7         Bb6      Eb
No one can light up my night like you do.
Eb                              Eb6          Ab  Ab6 Ab/Eb 
Flickering embers of love, I've known one or two.
    Bb               Gm               Eb
But old flames can't hold a candle to you.

Break: Gm Eb6 Eb Fm Eb Fm Ab/Eb Bb Ab/F Bb Ab/Bb Eb

Eb                                           Ab
Flickering embers of love, I've known one or two.
    Bb         Bb7   Gm               Eb
But old flames can't hold a candle to you.
