I LOVE YOU BECAUSE
Recorded by: Ernest Tubb
Written by: Leon Payne

[G] I love you because you under-[C] stand, dear
Ev'-[G] ry single thing I try to [D] do
You're al-[G] ways there to lend a helping [C] hand, dear
But [G] most of all I [D] love you 'cause you're [G] you.

No [C] matter what the world may say a-[G] bout me
I [A] know your love will always see me [D] through
I [G] love you for the way you never [C] doubt me
But [G] most of all I [D] love you 'cause you're [G] you.

I love you because my heart is lighter
Ev'ry time you're walking by my side
I love you because the future's brighter
The door to happiness you've opened wide.

No matter what may be the style or season
I know your heart will always be true
I love you for a hundred thousand reasons
But, most of all I love you 'cause you're you.
