8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
The sun -beams kissed the sands, My fate was in your hands,
The day I met you dear.
And though I find you've gone, Your mem -'ry ling -ers on,
I can't for -get you dear.
On a day like to -day, We passed the time a -way,
Writ -ing Love Let -ters In The Sand.
How you laughed when I cried, Each time I saw the tide,
Take our Love Let -ters In The Sand.
You made a vow that you would al -ways be true,
But some -how that vow meant noth -ing to you.
Now my poor heart just aches, With ev -'ry wave it breaks,
Ov -er Love Let -ters In The Sand.
