But Beautiful

Words & Music by Johnny Burke & Jimmy Van Heusen
Recorded by Tony Bennett, 1975

D7   Am7 G6   Bm7-5     E7-9    E7 
Love is funny  or  it's sad, 

Am7     C#m7-5       F#7
Or it's quiet or it's mad;

        G6       Bm7-5    E7-9  E7    A7/9     Cdim A7/9  A7
It's a good thing or it's bad,    but beautiful!

A7            D9     D7         G      G/F#      E7
Beautiful to take a chance, and if you fall, you fall;

         Am      Am+7   Am7      Am6     D9 Am7  D7
And I'm thinking that I wouldn't mind at all.

D7   Am7 G6     Bm7-5         E7-9    E7
Love is tearful       or it's gay, 

Am7    C#m7-5          F#7
It's a problem or it's play;

       G6        Bm7-5  E7-9  E7      A7/9
It's a heartache either way,      but beautiful!

        Am7     Cm7 D7 G6  G/F#       Em7       Am   B7      Em  Em+7  F7
And I'm thinking    if you      were mine, I'd never let you go;

     Am7       D9     Cdim  D7      G6
And that would be but beautiful, I know.
