Words & Music by Johnn Green, Ed Heyman, Ed Sour & Fran Eyton
Recorded by Ella Fitzgerald, 1953

Am7 Am7/G (Cdim) D7             D+5
My  heart           is sad and lonely;

G6         Am7      Bm7 Bbm7 Am7 Fdim
For you I sigh, for you dear on - ly.

Am  Am7/G        B7
Why haven't you seen it?

Em7         D7/9 D+5       G6
I'm all for you  body and soul.

Am7 Am7/G    Cdim     D7    D+5
I   spend my days in long - ing

G6               Am7      Bm7 Bbm7   Am7   Fdim
And won - d'ring why it's me you're wrong - ing;

Am Am7/G       B7
I  tell you I mean it,

Em7         D7/9 D+5      G    F#7
I'm all for you body and soul.


G          Em            G9           D7
I can't believe it, it's hard to conceive it,

     G          Am D7/9  G
That you turn away ro - mance.

Am7        Cdim          G9            F#7
Are you pretending?  It looks like the ending,

  Am7          C    D7         G   F#7  F7     E7         
Unless I could have one more chance to prove, dear,

Am7 Am7/G Cdim    D7          D+5
My  life       a wreck you're ma - king;

G6           Am7        Bm7 Bbm7  Am7  Fdim
You know I'm yours for just the   ta - king

Am  Am7/G      B7
I'd gladly surrender 

  Em7         D7/9 D+5  G    
Myself to you body and soul.

*Probably the most often-requested song title I've received in all the years I've had this site, the chart itself has eluded me for just as long -- and not for want of effort. The chart you see here is based in large part on a chart provided by recent visitor Mike of The Leigh Michael Sound. Though credited here to Ella Fitzgerald, this chart was also heavily influenced by recordings by Sarah Vaughan and Frank Sinatra.

The lyric and guitar chord transcriptions on this site are the work of The Guitarguy and are intended for private study, research, or educational purposes only. Individual transcriptions are inspired by and and based upon the recorded versions cited, but are not necessarily exact replications of those recorded versions.
