  - as played by Platters (Capo on 3rd Fret)

[Verse 1]

C                Dm7
They asked how I knew,

G7               C     C+  F
my true love was true, oh, oh.

Cdim        Cmaj7
I of course replied:

Am7               Dm7   G7          C
"Something here inside, cannot be denied".


C   Bbdim   Dm7   G+

[Verse 2]

C                          Dm7
They said, some day you’ll find

G7                 C      C+  F
all whose love are blind, oh, oh.

Cdim                 Cmaj7
When your heart’s on fire,

Am7         Dm7   G7                 C
You must realize, smoke gets in your eyes.


C   F   C   D#7


So I chaffed them and gaily laughed,

Abmaj7              Bbm7 Am7 Bb7 D#7 
to think they could doubt my love.

Ab                     G7     
Yet today, my love has flown away,

     C      Cmaj7 G7 G+
I am without my love.

[Verse 3]

C                      Dm7
Now laughing friends deride,

G7             C     C+  F
Tears I cannot hide, oh, oh.

Cdim           Cmaj7
So I smile and say:

Am7                  Dm7
“When a lovely flame dies,

G7                 C
Smoke gets in your eyes.


…in your eyes

C                  Fmaj C+
Smoke gets in your eyes

Dm7        Em/G    Cmaj7
Smoke gets in your eyes

I was going to post my own version of this song, mainly because I wanted to offer as version suitable to a bass voice, then I saw your version. Pretty close to mine, but the important thing being in the key "A". The Platters do it in D#, way too high for me. I recommend this version to any singers with a bass voice.
