Intro (and fill)

F          D7/F#       Gm7         C7         x 2

Verse 1

F                       Am     Abdim   Gm7   
I don't want to set the world  on      fire, 
Bbm  C7                                     F        D7/F#  Gm7   C7  (play fill)      
 I   just want to start     a flame in your heart.

F                      Am     Abdim   Gm7
In my heart I have but one    de------sire,
Bbm   C7                                F    Bb7     F
and   that one is you,    no other will do.

Bridge 

     Cm7        F7         Cm7        F7
I've lost all ambition for worldly acclaim;
Bbmaj7
I just want to be the one you love.
    Dm7         G7           Dm7          G7
And with your admission that you feel the same,
G7                                      C7
I'll have reached the goal I'm dreaming of, believe me.

Verse 2

F                       Am     Abdim   Gm7   
I don't want to set the world  on      fire,
Bbm   C7                                     F       D7/F#  Gm7   C7  (play fill)     
 I    just want to start     a flame in your heart.


(Verse 1 with spoken lyrics, same chords)

(Bridge)

Outro

F                       Am     Abdim   Gm7   
I don't want to set the world  on      fire,
Bbm   C7                                     F        Bb7     F       
 I    just want to start     a flame in your heart.



-----------------------

N.B. - regarding this line:

G7                                     C7
I'll have reached the goal I'm dreaming of, believe me.


I actually prefer to play at Gm7, even though G7 is what's on the original recording. Just a tip!

With the chord diagram (not the standard of UG) should be better.

How do you play each chord, there are some different way . See Abdim for example .

great song.
That first a minor might simply be an F with an A in the bass.
also,
Try playing the Dmi7 and G7 figure for the last line of the bridge, extending the pattern...then C7.

dmi7 G7 C7 c7#5
I'll have reached the goal I'm dreaming of, believe me.

The Abdim chord is the classic half step above the ii7. played 4x343x. middle finger on the 4(aflat) in the bass, ring finger on the 4(b) note of the G string. flatten the index finger over the middle 3 strings. There are three dim chord formations and another is simply moving the bass note to the high E string xx3434. The other one is x2313x. All three grips are important.

I play the intro an octave higher, but the recording does sound like the lower octave.

e|-------------------------0-0|
B|----3-------3-------3----5-5|
G|--5---5---5---5---5---5--5-5|
D|3-------4-------5--------5-5|
A|-----------------------3-3-3|
