All Too Soon

Words & Music by Carl Sigman & Duke Ellington
Recorded by Peggy Lee, 1959

 A      F#m  D9        E7/6
All too soon we had to part

A          F#7      D9        Dm6
The moment you had touched my heart

A   E7/6    C#m7-5    F#m
And with you went my dream

E7  D9   A    F#7  B7   F7   E7
All too soon.

 A      F#m   D9        E7/6
All too sweet was our affair

     A      F#7      D9        Dm6
And you put all the sweetness there

A      E7/6  C#m7-5    F#m
What a shame that it's gone

E7  D9   A
All too soon.

A  A9   A    A7    A     A7/6
I knew the strange de - lights

      D9          Bm7-5       A
That only you and love could bring,

   C#m7-5  F#7         Bm
And  as  I reached the heights

F#7  B7             Cdim          E7   
The bottom fell from ev' - ry - thing.

A          F#m  D9          E7/6
You should know   as well as  I

A            A7        D9    D6 Dm6
Our love deserves an - oth - er try

A       F#7     Bm7      F7
For we whispered    goodbye

E7  D9   A   F#m  D9 Dm6  Fdim A    D9  Dm6  AM7
All too soon,             too soon.
