8-beat intro. with 4 lead-in notes ("Those hap - py"). Start strumming on the word "hours".
Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
Those happy hours,  That we once knew,
Though long ago,  Still make me blue.
They say that time,  Heals a broken heart.
But time has stood still,  Since we’ve been apart.
I can’t stop loving you,  So I’ve made up my mind,
To live in memory,  Of old lonesome times.
I can’t stop wanting you,  It’s useless to say
So I’ll just live my life,  In dreams of yesterday.
I can’t stop loving you,  There's no use to try,
Pretend there's someone new,  I can't live a lie.
I can’t stop wanting you,  The way that I do.
There's only been one love for me,  That one love is you.
