"The Closer You Get"
by James P. Pennington and Mark Gray

performed by ALABAMA
4/4 time

G F C   C  D|Em   Em  D|C   C  D|Em   Bm   Am   C/D

Chorus:
The Closer You Get,[G]
the further I fall.[C]
I'll be [Am]over the edge now [D]
in no time at [G]all. [D]
I'm fallin' [G]faster and faster and faster
with no time to stall.[C]
The Closer You Get,[Am] [C/D]
the further I fall[G]
             
G   G  F|C

verse 1:
[C]The things that you say to me,[D]|[Em]
the look on your face, [D]
[C]brings out the man in me.[D] [Em]
Do I see a trace[Bm] in your eyes[Am] of love?[C/D]

(repeat chorus)

verse 2:
Could I be dreamin'?
Is this really real?
'Cause there's something magic,
the way that I feel in your arms tonight.

(repeat chorus)
 ---goes into the bridge---
[C/D] the further I fall[C]

Bridge:
[C]keep fall-[D]in', oh, yeah [C]yeah, keep fall-[D]in'.
[C]mmm fall-[D/C]in', oh, yeah [C]yeah, I'm fall-[D/C]in'.
[C]Yes I'm fall-[D/C]in'                [C]                [D/C]
                           (Yes I'm fallin')
              (yes I'm fallin')            
[C]Yes I'm fall-[D/C]in'                [C]                [D/C]
                           (Yes I'm fallin')
              (yes I'm fallin')            
[C]Yes we're fall-[D/C]in'                     [C]         [D]
                                (yes we're fallin')
                (yes we're fallin')

[repeat chorus, and fade]

I think electric guitar intro and chorus parts go like this:
  G    F  C     D   Em        D C
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
----------5-5-5/7-7/9--9-9--9\7\5----------------------------------------
--5--5/3--5-5-5/7-7/9--9-9--9\7\5-------------------------------------------
--5--5/3--3-3-3/5-5/7--7-7--7\5\3-------------------------------------------
--3--3/1--------------------------------------------------------------------
                                 
and hit these bar chords on their respective parts as well:
Bm    Am    D/C---same as D 
----  ----
----  ----
----  ----
-9--  --7-
-9--  --7-
-7--  --5-                
You can also hear another guitar doing an arpeggio with the minor chords when
they start with Em, Bm toward the verse/intro end.
