If You Were The Only Girl     in key of A 

Written by Nat D. Ayer with lyrics by Clifford Grey
Sung by George Robey and Violet Loraine in 1916. In 
the post WW2 era, this song was covered by many great 
singers, including Dean Martin, Perry Como and Bing 
Crosby.

Intro:  A   B7   E7   A   E7

Verse 1:
           A            F#7  B7    
        If you were the only girl in the world
            E7              A    E7
        and I were the only boy
            F#m                          Bm
        Nothing else would matter in the world today
        E7                           A        E7
        We could go on loving in the same old way

Verse 2:
          A         F#7   B7
        A garden of Eden  just made for two
             E7                 A     E7
        With nothing to mar our joy
        F#m              C#m                 C#7
        I would say such wonderful things to you
        D           Adim    A         G         F#7
        There would be such wonderful things to do
           Bm           Dm   C#m         F#7
        If you were the only girl in the world
            B7         E7   A     E
        and I were the only boy.

        If you were the only girl in the world

        and I were the only boy
        F#m                              Bm
        Nothing else would matter in the world today
        E7                           A        E7
        We could go on loving in the same old way

        With nothing to mar our joy
        F#m              C#m              
        I would say such wonderful things to you
          D         Adim     A         G         F#7

        If you were the only girl in the world
