Thread Name: Chord Req: Happiness Is You (Johnny Cash)
Subject: Lyr/Chords Add: HAPPINESS IS YOU (Johnny Cash)
Words & music by Johnny Cash & June Carter Cash
As recorded by Johnny Cash on "Happiness Is You" (1966)

[1] Way down the mountain, I chased a moonbeam.
On the [5-7] beach, I built sand castles, [1] too.
My moonbeams faded; my castles tumbled. [1-7]
[4] All of this was [1] meaningless [5-7] 'cause happiness is [1] you.

CHORUS: [4] No more chasin' moonbeams [1] or catchin' falling stars.
[4] I know now my pot of gold [1] is anywhere you [5-7] are.
My heart won't [1] miss you; my heart goes with you. [1-7]
[4] Loneliness is [1] emptiness, [5-7] but happiness is [1] you.

I tried to doubt you, and live without you;
Tried to deny that I love you like I do,
But I realize now, and I'll admit it:
You'll always be a part of me, 'cause happiness is you. CHORUS
