                Trying To Get To You:Roy Orbison.

Recorded on JE-WEL Records in 1956.

D. (One of his first.)

INTRO: D# Cm Fm A#

#1.

A#                       D#

I've been traveling over mountains,

even through the valleys, too.

                              G#

I've been traveling night and day,

                A#                          D#

running all the way, baby, trying to get to you.

#2.

D#

Since I read your lovin' letter,

                             D#7

where you said you loved me, true.

                              G#

I've been traveling night and day,

                A#                          D#  

running all the way, baby, trying to get to you.

CHORUS:

D#7                              G#

Well, there's nothing that could hold me.

                                D#

Or that could keep me away from you.

                         F

Since your loving letter told me,

                          A#

that you really loved me, true.

#3.

A#                       D#

I just had to reach you, baby..

D#

but after all that I've been through..

                               G#                   

I've been travellin' night and day,

                A#

runnin' all the way, baby, trying to

       D#

get to you.

#4.

D#

Well, if I had to do it over..

                        D#7

that's exactly what I'd do.

                              G#

I'd keep travellin' night and day,

                A#

runnin' all the way, baby, trying to

       D#

get to you.

CHORUS:

D#                             G#

Well, since I read your lovin' letters..

                       D#

then my heart began to sing.

                        G#

There were many miles between us..

                F      A#

but they didn't mean a thing.

                           

#5.

A#                    D#

Lord above me knows I love you.

D#                       D#7

It was He who brought me through.

                        G#

When my way was darkest night,

                             A#

He would shine His brightest light,

                            D#  F A# D#

when I was trying to get to you.

A fifties smash from Kraziekhat.
