Recorded by Jack Jones, 1966 (#62)
Am Dm6 E7-9 Am Dm6 E7 A day in the life of a fool; Am Dm7 G7 CM7 CM7/6 A sad and a long lonely day. Dm7 G7 I walk down the avenue CM7 CM7/6 And hope I'll run into Dm6 E7 The welcome sight of you Bm7-5 E7 Fdim E7 Coming my way. Am Dm6 E7 Am Dm6 E7 I stop just across from your door; A7sus4 Gdim Dm Gdim Dm But you're never home anymore. Dm6 E7 So back to my room Am Dm6 And there in the gloom E7 Bm7-5 E7 Am Dm6 Am I cry tears of good-bye. Dm7 Am7 Til you come back to me, Dm7 Am7 That's the way it will be, Dm7 Em7 Am7 Every day in the life of a fool.
