I Walk the Line Johnny Cash [Chorus] E A I keep a close watch on this heart of mine E A I keep my eyes wide open all the time. D A I keep the ends out for the tie that binds E A Because you're mine, I walk the line [Verse] E A I find it very, very easy to be true E A I find myself alone when each day is through D A Yes, I'll admit that I'm a fool for you E A Because you're mine, I walk the line E A As sure as night is dark and day is light E A I keep you on my mind both day and night D A And happiness I've known proves that it's right E A Because you're mine, I walk the line [Chorus] E A You've got a way to keep me on your side E A You give me cause for love that I can't hide D A For you I know I'd even try to turn the tide E A Because you're mine, I walk the line
