Fred Astaire sings the Cole Porter song "Since I Kissed My Baby Goodbye" in the Colubia Pictures musical
"You'll Never Get Rich" - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DPMAimgRLrQ
This transcription is a simplified approximation of the chords, arranged to be easier to play on guitar. It's
in C, which I think is the original key.

[Chords]
Am(maj7) x02110
C/G      3x2013

[Intro]
C  C7  F  Fm
C      G7

[Verse]
C       F        Fm       C
Evenin' creepin' down the mountain,
         F      Fm   G  C/G  G
Wakes up Mister Fire-fly,
Am        Am(maj7)
Bullfrog, settin' there,
F                      Fm
Starts a-croakin', but I don't care,
C                 F        G     G7
Since I kissed my baby goodbye.
C          F          Fm     C
South wind shakes the ole magnolia,
         F          Fm    G   C/G  G
Moon-man lights the dingy sky,
Am          Am(maj7)
Stars start sprinklin' gold
F                 Fm
On the river, but still I'm cold
C                 G7   C
Since I kissed my baby goodbye.

[Chorus]
         G        G7
Since my baby and me
C
Parted company,
        F   Fm         C                   G      G7
I can't see what's the diff if I live or I die.
             C      C7
Oh Lawd, I'm takin' such a beatin',
    F        Fm
I'm no good, even cheatin',
C                 G        C         G7
Since I kissed my baby goodbye.
