Heat of the Morning

G      F      Em

I awoke in a daze, to the heat of the morning

Am      C      F

The letter you wrote, still lay by my bed

G      F      Em

I felt in my heart, that dagger of sorrow

Am      C      G

How I wanted to die, from words that I read


Em      C      G

Last night I heard, a lonesome dove crying

Am      Am/G      F

Where will I go, oh what will I do

Em      F      Em      C

I’m left here alone, in the heat of the morning

F      C      G

Forsaken by love, unwanted by you


All of my dreams, have been so deceitful

Sweet songs of the night, are now bitter and cruel

The morning sunlight, is just a reminder

That I’m starting another day without you


Chorus


I’m left here alone, in the heat of the morning

Forsaken by love, unwanted by you
