Go To Sleep Alone                                       By the Flatlanders (sung by Joe 
Ely - Jimmie Dale Gilmore does a
version also and in the same key). The Dm could be a D, but I'm not sure. Feel free to
tell me what you hear. Enjoy. Thanks!

C                                                       G
Well you may dance the night away and laugh among the stars
G                                                   C
And you may spill the Milky Way and dance among the bars
    C                            F                  Dm
And you may wake the rafters and break the heart of stone
    G                       C
But you got to go to sleep alone

Chorus
F                           C
You’ve got to go to sleep alone
F                           C
You’ve got to go to sleep alone
F                                                 C
And even if you’re lying with (2nd chorus – “to”) somebody
      G                           C
Still you’ve got to go to sleep alone

Well you may climb the golden stairs when we’re past Jacob ’s Ladder
And you may put on golden airs and make the rich get sadder
You may learn the golden rule and sit on a golden throne
But you got to go to sleep alone

Chorus

Well you may wake up in the night and wonder if you’re dreaming
And referee the fights between the being and the seeming
And when the victor holds your hand up to the great unknown
You got to go back to sleep alone

Chorus
You’ve got to go to sleep alone
You’ve got to go to sleep alone
F                             C               Am
Even if you’re lying with somebody you really love
       G                          C
Still you’ve got to go to sleep alone
