[Verse]
      G
One summer evening drunk to hell
   Am               C
I sat there nearly lifeless
     G
An old man in the corner sang
            C           Am
where the waterlilies grow
     G
And on the jukebox Johnny sang
  Am                  C
about a thing called love
          G           Am
and it's how are you kid
      C          G
and whats your name
     C                    Am
and how would you bloody know

[Verse]
   G
In blood and death 'neath a screaming sky
  Am             C
I lay down on the ground
        G
And the arms and legs of other men
     C              Am
Were scattered all around
     G                           
Some cursed some prayed some prayed then cursed
     Am                  C
Then prayed and bled some more

     G     Am        C        G
And the only thing that I could see
        G           Am
Was a pair of brown eyes
         C          G
that was looking at me
     G             Am
But when we got back labelled
    C        G
parts one to three
        G             Am
There was no pair of brown eyes
     C        G
waiting for me

[Chorus]
        G       Am       C           G
And a rovin' a rovin' a rovin' I'll go
        C             Am
For a pair of brown eyes

G  Am  C  G  2x

[Verse]
      G
I looked at him he looked at me
    Am               C
All I could do was hate him
      G
While ray and philomena sang
    C          Am
Of my elusive dreams
   G
I saw the streams, the rolling hills
      Am                  C
Where his brown eyes were waiting
      G         Am    C             G
And I thought about a pair of brown eyes
     C               Am
That waited once for me
   G
So drunk to hell I left the place
          Am                C
Sometimes crawling sometimes walking
    G
A hungry sound came across the breeze
     C                 Am
So I gave the walls a talking
      G          
And I heard the sounds of long ago
Am             C               
From the old canal
     G          Am         C     G
And the birds were whistling in the trees
          C               Am
Where the wind was gently laughing


[Chorus]
        G       Am       C           G
And a rovin' a rovin' a rovin' I'll go
        G       Am       C           G
And a rovin' a rovin' a rovin' I'll go
        G       Am       C           G
And a rovin' a rovin' a rovin' I'll go
        C             Am
For a pair of brown eyes
        C      D      G
For a pair of brown eyes

        G       Am       C           G
And a rovin' a rovin' a rovin' I'll go
        G       Am       C           G
And a rovin' a rovin' a rovin' I'll go
        G       Am       C           G
And a rovin' a rovin' a rovin' I'll go
        C             Am
For a pair of brown eyes
        C      D      G
For a pair of brown eyes
