(Faith)
(D) I knew who he was when I took his name
In somehow knowin', it's (Dsus4)just not the same late at (G) night (Em)
(D) He knows the danger, but he does what he does
He calls it duty, but (Dsus4)I call it love, so here (G)I am
While he's (Em)gone to some foreign land

(Both)
And I cry, (D) 'cause I'm all (Em) alone
And the nights (F#) get so cold (G) and long
And I try (A) not to think (Bm) he won't come home (Em)
But I'm (G)sleepin' with the telephone (D)

Inst.:  (D) x 4

(Reba)
(D) The yellow ribbon on my neighbor's gate
Always reminds me that (Dsus4)someone's awake just like (G)me (Em)
(D) I hear the sirens and I watch the news
He laughs and leaves with his (Dsus4)gun and his blue uni-(G)form
And I (Em)pray God keeps him safe from harm

(Both)
And I cry, (D) 'cause I'm all (Em) alone
And the nights (F#) get so cold (G) and long
And I try (A) not to think (Bm) he won't come home (Em)
(G) But I'm sleepin' with the telephone

(Reba)
(F) I loose him in my darkest dreams
(Faith)
(G) And my blood runs cold and my heart skips a beat
(Reba)
(F) So I get up, I can't take anymore
(Both)
(G) Sometimes I (Em)hate how much I love him
But everyday I love him more (D) | (Em) | (F#) | (G)

(Both)
And I try (A) not to think (Bm) he won't come home (Em) (F#) | (G)
But I'm sleeping with the telephone (D) | (D) | (D) | (D) |

(Faith)
(D) Something awakes me from where he should be
I reach for him, --- the telephone rings ---
