[Verse 1]

A          Amaj7
Hello--how are you?
         A7                                              Bbdim       Bm
Have you been alright, through all those lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely nights,
                E        Bm           C#m
That's what I'd say,     I'd tell you everything
D             E           Amaj7       Dmaj7  
If you'd pick up that telephone.


[Verse 2]

A            Amaj7
Hey--how you feelin'
        A7            
Are you still the same
                                    Bbdim               Bm         E   
Don't you realize the things we did we did were all for real not a dream
Bm     C#m
I just can't believe
D           E            Amaj7    Dmaj7       Amaj7           Dmaj7
They've all faded out of view.           Yeah Yeah  ooh   ooh ooh

Shoo wop   doo be doo doo wop   doo wah doo lang
A         F#m           D           E
Blue days black nights  doo wah doo lang

A        F#m
I look into the sky
 D                             E
(The love you need ain't gonna see you through.)
A     F#m
And I wonder why
D                                    E
(The little things you planned ain't coming true.)


[Chorus]

A             F#m                D                   E6    Ddim

Can't you just let it ring a little longer longer longer   wo wo
Bm            E      Bm                         C#m
I'll just sit tight, through the shadows of the night
D       E           Amaj7    Dmaj7      Amaj7              Dmaj7
Let it ring for evermore.         Yeah  Yeah      ooh  ooh ooh

                      
[Chorus]

A          F#m                   D           E
Shoo wop   doo be doo doo wop    doo wah doo lang
A         F#m           D           E
Blue days black nights  doo wah doo lang

A        F#m
I look into the sky

Thanks to all for the feedback. Regarding the key, the chords shown are in the same key as both the Wembley Live Concert and the Ultimate Collection CD. If it sounds a step higher then try tuning to concert pitch first.
