Recorded by Doug Stone

G 
All our friends are  
D7 
asking me  
G 
about 
 
you
 
They  
D7 
say I was a fool to let you  
G 
go
 
The truth is I had  
C 
no choice in the  
G 
matter 
 
 
C 
 
But I  
G 
hide my feelings  
D7 
well so they don't  
G 
know
 
If  
C 
it was up to me I'd stem the tides
 
And move the highest  
G 
mountain just to see
F 
Your loving  
C 
smile 
 
a
G 
gain
 
If  
C 
it was up to me
I'd turn the hands of time back
 
To the  
G 
way we used to be
 
And we'd be  
D7 
one again if it was up to  
G 
me 
 
 
C 
 
They  
G 
ask me when  
D7 
we're gettin' back to
G 
gether
D7 
They don't know it's all out of my  
G 
hands
 
Cause I can't help the  
C 
way that you're not  
G 
feeling 
 
 
C 
 
Any  
G 
more than I can  
D7 
help the way I  
G 
am
 
If  
C 
it was up to me I'd stem the tides
 
And move the highest  
G 
mountain just to see
F 
Your loving  
C 
smile 
 
a
G 
gain
 
If  
C 
it was up to me
I'd turn the hands of time back
 
To the  
G 
way we used to be
 
And we'd be  
D7 
one 
 
again
 
Yes if  
C 
it was up to me I'd stem the tides
 
And move the highest  
G 
mountain just to see
F 
Your loving  
C 
smile 
 
a
G 
gain
 
If  
C 
it was up to me
I'd turn the hands of time back to
 
The  
G 
way we used to be
 
And we'd be  
D7 
one 
 
again
 
If it was up to  
G 
me
