Answer Me, My Love

Words & Music by Fred Rauch & Gerhard Winkler (as "Mutterlein")
English lyric by Carl Sigman
Recorded by Nat "King" Cole, 1954

D          A
Answer me, oh, my love;

  G                Gm      D
Just what sin have I been guilty of?

G6                    D              
Tell me how I came to lose your love,

Fdim   Em7    A7      D
Please answer me, my love.

 D             A
You were mine yesterday;

G               Gm       D
I believed that love was here to stay.

G6                           D
Won't you tell me where I've gone astray?

Fdim   Em7    A7-5     D
Please answer me, my love.


F#m                    D7              F#m
If you're happier without me, I'll try not to care;

                          Dm7            E7           A7
But if you still think about me, please listen to my prayer.

D             A
You must know I've been true;

G                  Gm       D
Won't you say that we can start anew?

G6                  D
In my sorrow, now I turn to you;

Fdim   Em7    A9  A7-9 D6
Please answer me,  my love.
