                        "One Less Bell To Answer"
                           (Bacharach - David)

[This one came out in the fall of 1970, and while Bacharach and David
continued to collaborate for another couple of years I believe this was
their last big hit.]


        Dmaj7   G13     Dmaj7
         /   /   /   /    /   /
        Em7/G F#m7 Gmaj7/E
         /     /     /

Verse 1:

        Dmaj7       D6     Dmaj7
        One   less bell to answer
        Bm9 F#m7 Bm9    F#m7
        One less egg to fry
        Gmaj7         C#m7/F#    F#7
        One less man to pick up after
        Bm9          E7   Em7/A
        I should be happy
            Em7 F#m7 Gmaj7 Gmaj7/A (Dmaj7)
        But all  I    do    is      cry

Verse 2:

         Dmaj7     D6      Dmaj7
        (Cry, cry, no more laughter)  I should be happy
         Bm9 F#m7 Bm9   F#m7
        (Oh, why  did he go)
        Gmaj7           C#m7/F#    F#7
        Since he left my life's so empty


        Ebmaj7                         Gm7
        Though I try to forget it just can't be done
                      Abmaj7                Dm7/G
        Each time the doorbell rings I still run

                    Cmaj7      Cmaj7/E
        I don't know how in the world
                Fmaj7  Cmaj7/E
        To stop thinking of him
        Fmaj7   Cmaj7/E        Bm7/E  E7
        'Cause I still love him so
                     Em9            A13
        I spend each day the way I start out
        Em9        A13
        Crying my heart out

Verse 3 (first two lines instrumental):

        Dmaj7     D6     Dmaj7
          /   /   /   /    /   /   /   /
         Bm9     F#m7     Bm9     F#m7
          /   /   /   /    /   /   /   /

        Gmaj7           F#m7     Bm7
        One less man to pick up after
        Em9      A13     Am6      B7-9
        No more laughter, no more love
        Em9      F#m7 Gmaj7 Gmaj7/A
        Since he went away    (he went away)


         Dmaj7     D6     Dmaj7
        (One less bell to answer)    Why did he leave me
         Bm9 F#m7 Em7/G F#m7 Gmaj7/E Gmaj7/A
        (Why, why, why   did    he   leave)

        (One less bell to answer)     Now I've got one less egg to fry
                                      One less egg to fry
        (Why, why, why did he leave)  And all I do is cry

        (One less bell to answer)     Because a man told me goodbye
        (Why, why, why did he leave)

        (One less bell to answer)     Somebody tell me please
                                      Where did he go, why did he go
        (Why, why, why did he leave)  How could he leave me

        [end cold on Dmaj7]
