Dont Close Your Eyes Chords
Demo Lyrics & Pdf

This song was the third single release from the album of the same name in 1988. Probably the most well known of Keith Whitley songs was Don't Close your Eyes which was a #1 hit for Keith in the US and went to #2 in Canada.

Bob McDill penned 31 #1 hits for many country artists and this song was one of them. On the 1995 tribute album, Alan Jackson covered this song.

  • Drop D Tuning = No
  • Capo = No
  • Rhythm = you have the option to play a bit of arpeggio and strumming as the song begins with piano, that's often what I do .. or play root up down up root up down up
  • Picking = a little in the break
  • Chords = G, C, D, D/Gb, Em, A, Am7, G6

You have the option here to play the intro piano part in the middle of the song between the verses so I wouldn't call it a full fledged picking break, but then again you don't really need one.


Dont Close Your Eyes Lyrics

I know you loved him - A long time ago
Even now in my arms - You still want him I know
But darling this time - Let your memories die
When you hold me tonight - Don't close your eyes

Don't close your eyes - Let it be me
Don't pretend it's him - In some fantasy
Darling just once - Let yesterday go
You'll find more love - Than you've ever known
Just hold me tight - When you love me tonight
And don't close your eyes

Maybe I've been a fool - Holding on all this time
Lyin' here in your arms - Knowing he's in your mind
But I keep hoping some day - That you'll see the light
Let it be me tonight - Don't close your eyes

Don't close your eyes - Let it be me
Don't pretend it's him - In some fantasy
Darling just once - Let yesterday go
You'll find more love - Than you've ever known
Just hold me tight - When you love me tonight
And don't close your eyes

Just hold me tight, when you love me tonight and don't close your eyes
