I Don't Want To Miss A Thing
Written by:  Dianne Warren
Recorded by Mark Chesnutt on "I Don't Want To Miss A Thing"
and Aerosmith on "The Armageddon Soundtrack"
Transcribed by:  Donny Haltom

I think Mark plays it in G.  Aerosmith plays it in D.

G                 D/F#                  Em
I could stay awake just to hear you breathing
C                             G
Watch you smile while you are sleeping
While you're far away and dreaming
G                  D/F#              Em
I could spend my life in this sweet surrender
C                      G           Am
I could stay lost in this moment forever
Bm            C
Where every moment spent with you
Is a moment I treasure
G                   D/F#
I don't wanna close my eyes
Am                 C
I don't wanna fall asleep
'Cause I'd miss you
D                             G             D
And I don't wanna miss a thing
G                             D/F#
'Cause even when I dream of you
Am                                  C
The sweetest dream will never do
I'd still miss you
D                            G            D/F#            Am (hold)
And I don't wanna miss a thing
G                   D/F#                     Em
Lying close to you, feeling your heart beating
C                                G
And I'm wondering what your dreaming
Wondering if it's me your seeing
G                             D/F#                    Em
And then I kiss your eyes, and thank God we're together
Bm           C
I just wanna stay with you
In this moment forever
I don't wanna miss one smile
I don't wanna miss one kiss
Well, I just wanna be with you, right here with you
Just like this
I just wanna hold you close
Feel your heart so close to mine
And just stay here in this moment
For all the rest of time

I think that's pretty close, at least that's the way I play it.  Let me know
if there's any corrections.
This is a great version of a great song.  It was originally written for
Barbara Streisand, but I like it anyway.

I think you need a capo on the 3rd fret.I think this song is played in Bb not G.
If you don't think the capo should be there e mail me at
