Keith Whitley
from the album _Greatest_Hits_
written by Keith Whitley

This is a beautiful song that Keith recorded at his home studio in 
1987.  He fingerpicks the song, but I can't figure out the pattern 
he uses.  If you know how to do it, please let me know.  Anyway, 
here's the chords.  Listen to the recording to get the timing down 

1st verse:
If I were alone in the desert
    C                     G
Without a drink of water around
   C                          G
On my knees and hands in that white, scorching sand
With the hot Sahara sun beating down
If I could be granted my wishes
   C                          G
If anything I want could come true
C                          G
I know that it might sound funny
    D                           G
But here's what I'd want you to do

Tell Lorrie I love her
Tell Lorrie I need her
Tell her everything would be okay
If I could just see her
Tell Lorrie I love her
Tell Lorrie I need her
If I leave this old world
         D                       G  
Tell her she's the only girl for me

2nd verse:
If I were adrift on the ocean
A vessel with no sails or steam
Floating aimlessly on and endless sea
Hopelessly lost it would seem
If all of the fish in the water
Could echo my last dying plea
I know you might not understand it
But here's what I'd want it to be


If I leave this old world
Tell her she's the only girl for me

      It's too bad Lorrie (Morgan) didn't believe him; if she had 
      Keith Whitley might still be with us today.
