Changing PartnersWords & Music by Joe Darion & Larry Coleman
Recorded by Patti Page, 1953 (#3
A7 D A7 D D7 D7/9 D9 G We were waltzin' together to a dreamy mel - o - dy G/F# Em A7 When they called out "Change partners" G Edim D And you waltzed away from me. A7 D A7 D D7 D7/9 D9 G Now my arms feel so empty as I gaze around the floor, Gm E7 D And I'll keep on changing partners G Em7 A7 D Till I hold you once more. A7 D A7 D D7 D7/9 D9 G Though we danced for one moment, and too soon we had to part, G/F# Em A7 G Edim D In that wonderful moment somethin' happened to my heart; A7 D A7 D D7 D7/9 D9 G So I'll keep changing partners till you're in my arms and then, Gm E7 D G Em7 A7 D Oh, my darlin' I will never change part - ners a - gain.
