Recorded by Harry James, 1939, Beatrice Byrnes vocal
E7 A Edim D9 Cdim When I walk and I'm called, and I don't turn like that, E7 A Edim Am7 Cdim Should I be introduced, and I sound very flat, A C#m7-5 F#7 D9 F7 E7 It isn't a grudge I bear -- blame it on my last af - fair. A Edim D9 Cdim If I passed up my plate, though the dish is delish, E7 A Edim Am7 Cdim If I'm handed the bone and I don't care to wish, A C#m7-5 F#7 D9 Bm7-5 Edim E7/6 A G7 It isn't the bill of fare -- blame it on my last af - fair. Bridge: C Am7 Dm7 G7 It hurt me so, and oh, I don't know Edim F C7 F7/6 If I'll ev - er live it through; A C#m7-5 Gdim F#7 There's no ex - cuse for this a - buse E Edim E7 Com - ing from one like you. E7 A Edim D9 Cdim If my eyes fill with tears at the least love words said, E7 A Edim D9 Cdim If I'm walk - ing the park when I should be in bed, A C#m7-5 F#7 D9 Bm7-5 Edim E7/6 A It's not that I need the air -- blame it on my last af - fair.
