You're the Nearest Thing to Heaven - Johnny Cash

I have sailed the peaceful waters of the ocean deep and blue
A7 A7 D D
I held my breath and watched the western sunsets golden hue
I've flown above the mountain peaks and valleys wide and green
A7 A7 D D
But you're the nearest thing to heaven that I've seen

D D G7 G7 D D
You're the nearest thing to heaven yes you are
G7 G7 D D
I have searched for happiness so long and far
D D G7 G7
But my search for love was through the day that I found you
D D A7 A7 D D
Cause you're the nearest thing to heaven, yes you are

I confess that I've been tempted by a luring magic charms
When the smile was flashed my way and stood before two open arms
But I turned and walked away because I love you like I do
You're the nearest thing to heaven darlin' you


I have watched the silver raindrops fall to earth to cool the day
Watched the rainbow at twilight when the clouds had blown away
I love the pretty flowers but they cannot buy the worth
Cause you're the nearest thing to heaven on this earth
