What a perfectly constructed song written by Bob Crewe and Kenny Nolan. It was 
originally recorded by The Four Seasons in early 1974 but released as a Frankie 
Valli solo song and topped the charts in 1975.  Besides the touching subject 
matter, it subliminally keeps our interest by continuously modulating up 1/2 step 
at a time.  Send Questions/comments to dougj1986[at]aol.com.   My apologies if the 
chord/words placement gets misaligned as I imported these notes from Word.

My Eyes Adored You

The intro guitar part uses '6ths' a la Van Morrison's BROWN EYED GIRL or Jim Croce's OPERATOR

CHORUS:
        Bm7                  Bm7/E
My eyes adored you, though I never laid a hand on you,
           Amaj7
my eyes a..dored you.
Like a million miles away from me you couldn't see
    Bbdim   Bm7                           Bm7/E        D  A/C#  D/E
how I    a……dored you.. So close, so close, and yet so far.
A                       C#m
Carried your books from school,
        Em                  A7         D   A/C#
playing make-believe you're married to me.
Bm7                                G       D/F#    Esus7  E7
You were fifth grade, I was sixth, when we came to be.
F#m                C#m       Em7      A7         D    A/C#
Walking home every day..over Barnagat Bridge and Bay,
        Bm7                          G        D/F#     Esus  E7
till we grew into ' me and you,' who went our separate ways.

CHORUS

Bb              Dm                 Fm           Bb7         Eb  Eb/D   
Headed for city lights climbed the ladder up to fortune and fame.
   Cm                      Cm7   Ab     Ab/G   F7sus F7
I worked my fingers to the bone, made myself a name.
Gm               Dm            Fm             Bb7     Eb   Eb/D

      Cm                                        Ab     Ab/G   F7sus F7
Still I reminisce about the girl I miss and the love I left behind...

My eyes adored you, though I never laid a hand on you,

couldn't see     how I    a……dored you..
                       Cm7/F           Eb       Bb/D

my eyes a..dored you.   Like a million miles away from me you
                     Cdim      C#m7
couldn't see     how I    a……dored you..
                    C#m7/F#             E       B/D#
So close, so close, and      yet so     far.

Dm7/G             Dm7           Dm7/G               
My eyes adored    you, though I never laid a hand on you,
           C                            
my eyes a..dored you.   Like a million miles away from me you
                  C#dim7   Dm7
couldn't see  how I    a………dored you..
                     Dm7/G                    F       C/E   Dm7

C#m7
All my life I will remember, how warm and tender
   Bmaj7    B
we were way back then.
C#m7
Though I'm feeling sad regrets, I know I 
                          E         B/D#     [MODULATE UP 1/2 STEP TO Dm7]
won't ever forget you, my childhood friend.
