Intro: D  A  D  A

(EDIT:  For picking pattern, see below)



D-D2       A

September settled softly

Bm        Bm7        G

Leaves are starting to fall

  Em                        D2

I recall the last time you were here

           G                  A

Your laughter a melody that lingers still



Chorus:

       D-D2        G

There's a hole in my heart

    D-D2               G

and I carry it wherever I go

    Bm

Like a treasure that travels

Bm7              G

with me down every road

D-D2                      G

There's this longing lonesome ending

     D-D2            G

kind of bitter, kind of sweet

       Bm         Bm7

There's a hole in my heart

            D    D2

in the shape of you



Verse 2:



D-D2           A

Time steals so swiftly

Bm7           Bm7             G

Children having children of their own

      Em                    D2

And around life's merry-go round goes

             G                      A

And there you are wanting what you cannot hold



Chorus:

       D-D2        G

There's a hole in my heart

    D-D2               G

and I carry it wherever I go

    Bm

Like a treasure that travels

       Bm7      G      A

with me down every road

D-D2                      G

There's this longing lonesome ending

     D-D2            G

kind of bitter, kind of sweet

       Bm         Bm7

There's a hole in my heart

            D-D2

in the shape of you



D-D2 (pick/strum here)



Bridge:



   Bm

Even though my heart aches

        G

There's a smile on my face

Em             D

Cause just like a window to heaven

        G           A

There's a light shining through



Chorus/Ending:

       D-D2        G

There's a hole in my heart

    D-D2               G

and I carry it wherever I go

    Bm

Like a treasure that travels

       Bm7      G

with me down every road

         D-D2             G

There's this longing lonesome ending

     D-D2            G

kind of bitter, kind of sweet

       Bm         Bm7

There's a hole in my heart

             Em             A

There's a hole in my heart

       Bm         Bm7

There's a hole in my heart
