Tell Me Why
(Song begins at 0:58)
Traditional American love song
Rise Up Singing chapter: Love, p.128
G - C G / - - A D / G - C B7 / E A D G
Tell me why the stars do shine Tell me why the ivy twine Tell me why the skies are blue And I will tell you just why I love you Because God made the stars to shine Because God made the ivy twine Because God made the skies so blue Because God made you is why I love you
The Beach Boys did a version of this on the album Beach Boys' Party, and I learned it from the Let's All Sing songbook, published a long time ago by the American Camping Association (ACA).
