The Closer You Get Chords 
Demo Lyrics & Pdf

A song written by two members of the country group Exile. That band recorded this song. As did country singer Don King and Rita Coolidge. But it took Alabama to take the song to #1 in 1983.

This song is another one that could use some extra voices in the middle of the song especially, but if you have no choice, it can be sung solo. Here are the chords you'll want to use:

  • G
  • F
  • C
  • D
  • Em
  • Bm
  • Am
  • Dsus

For rhythm, once you get this one off the ground is a simple down up stop up down up stop up ... repeat. You may notice I tend to throw in a little quick shuffle between some of the chord changes.

The song doesn't have any lead in it but there is a bit of arpeggio required in the middle of the song.


The Closer You Get Lyrics

The closer you get, the further I fall
I'll be over the edge now in no time at all
I'm fallin' faster and faster and faster with no time to stall
The closer you get, the further I fall

The things that you say to me - The look on your face
Brings out the man in me - Do I see a trace in your eyes of love

The closer you get, the further I fall
I'll be over the edge now in no time at all
I'm fallin' faster and faster and faster with no time to stall
The closer you get, the further I fall

Could I be dreamin' - Is this really real
'Cause there's something magic
The way that I feel in your arms tonight

The closer you get, the further I fall
I'll be over the edge now in no time at all
I'm fallin' faster and faster and faster with no time to stall
The closer you get, the further I fall

The closer you get, (em hmm) the further I fall.

Yes, I'm fallin' (Yes, I'm fallin' Yes, I'm fallin')
Yes, I'm fallin' (Yes, I'm fallin' Yes, I'm fallin')
Yes, I'm fallin' (Yes, I'm fallin' Yes, I'm fallin')

The closer you get, the further I fall
I'll be over the edge now in no time at all
I'm fallin' faster and faster and faster with no time to stall
The closer you get, the further I fall
