A Nightingale Sang In Berkeley Square
As Sung by: Tony Bennett
>From the CD: Perfectly Frank

Transcribed by Mark Craft.

Note: This is all my own work and only an approximation of the song as
interpreted by Tony.  It is not in Tony's key -- and I'm no Ralph Sharon!

That [C7] certain [Am] night, the [Em] night we [C7]met
There was [F] magic a[E7]broad in the [Am] air [Fm6]
There were [C7] angels [G7]dining [C7]at the [Fm6]Ritz
And a [C7]nightingale [Am] sang in [Dm7]Berke[G7]ley [C7] Square

[short bridge, try C7, Am, G7]

I may be right, I may be wrong
But I'm perfectly willing to swear
That when you turned and smiled at me
A nightingale sang in Berkeley Square

[short bridge, try C7, Am, B7]

          [E] The moon that [C#m7] lingered over [F#m] London [B7] town
          [G#m7] Poor puzzled moon, [F#m7] he wore a [B7] frown
          [E] How could he [C#m7] know we two were [F#m] so in [B7] love
          [G#m7] The whole darned world seemed [Dm] upside [G7] down

The streets of town were paved with stars
It was such a romantic affair
And as we kissed and said goodnight
A nightingale sang in Berkeley Square

          [Repeat chorus with vocal or instrumental break]

My homeward steps were just as light
As the tap dancing feet of Astaire
And like an echo, far away
A [C7]nightingale [Am] sang in [Dm7]Berke[G7]ley [C7] Square
I [Dm7] know 'cause [G7] I was[Em7] there [Dm7]
That night in [G7] Berkeley [C] Square
[hit chord on each word]
[C7] I [C7] was [C7] there [C7]

This is a great tab - I only know Ian Hunter's (from Mott the Hoople) version of this, but they seem pretty similar. To make it sound right, you have to experiment with the different versions of the chords. This is based only on the Ian Hunter version, but heres what i think -
- the first C7 should be played (x35353), and the second C7 (x32310)
- Fm6 should be (xx3134)
- G7 should be (323003)
Its a great song, and really well tabbed
