Bm7                   E7        Em7   Em7(B5)  A7sus4  A7
    That bring me happiness, or pain!


D             Bm                 Em7       A7
   A cigar - ette that bears a lipstick's traces,
D               Bm          Em7           A7
   An airline ticket to ro-------mantic places, 
D                D7        G             G    G/F#  Em         Em7        A7

D                Bm                Em7           A7
   The winds of March that make my...  heart a dancer,
D             Bm                  Em7            A7
   A tele - phone that rings, but...  who's to answer? 
D               D7            G            G    G/F#   Em        Em7        A7

D             Bm               Em7        A7
   Gardenia perfume lingering...   on a pillow,
D                     Bm         Em7          A7
   Wild strawberries only seven...  francs a kilo, 
D                D7         G           G    G/F#   Em        Em7        A7

D                Bm             Em7        A7
   The park at evening when the bell has sounded,
D                Bm                  Em7             A7
   The 'Ile de France' with all the...   girls a - round it,
D              D7       G            G    G/F#   Em         A7         D
   The beauty that is Spring, these fool - ish things re - mind me of you!



G             Em              G                Gm9   Gm(b9)  Gm7
   I know...      that this...     was bound to be,
D6                    Cdim           Gm7(type2)             A     A7
   These things have haunted me, for you've entirely en - chanted me!


D                Bm                Em7          A7
   The sigh of midnight trains in...   empty stations,
D                   Bm                 Em7         A7
   Silk stockings thrown aside, dance...   invi - tations, 
D               D7            G            G    G/F#   Em         Em7        A7
   Oh, how the ghost of you clings, these fool - ish things re - mind me of you,
D                 Bm                Em7        A7
   First daffo - dils, and long ex-----cited cables,
D                Bm              Em7          A7
   And candle - light on little...   corner tables,
D                D7         G           G    G/F#   Em         Em7        A7
   And still my heart has wings, these fool - ish things re - mind me of you,
D                Bm              Em7      A7
   The smile of Garbo, when the scent of roses,
D                 Bm            Em7       A7
   The waiters whistling as the last bar closes, 
D                D7           G            G   G/F#   Em         A7         D
   The song that...  Crosby sings, these fool - ish things re - mind me of you!



G                Em              G               Gm9   Gm(b9)  Gm7
   How strange,      how sweet,     to find you still,
D6                  Cdim             Gm7(type2)            A      A7
   These things are dear to me, that seem to bring you so near to me!


D                   Bm                  Em7        A7
   The scent of smouldering leaves, the wail of steamers,
D              Bm                   Em7              A7
   Two lovers, on the street, who...    walk like dreamers, 
D               D7            G            
   Oh, how the ghost of you clings, 
        G    G/F#   Em        Em7       A7
These fool - ish things re - mind me of you, just you!


 D   Bm   Em7  A7     D   Bm   Em7  A7
 Ah, ah,  ah,  ah!    Ah, ah,  ah,  ah!  (repeat, end on D)
