A Cottage For Sale

Words & Music by Larry Conley & Willard Robison
Recorded by Nat King Cole, 1957

     D                       F#7         C#m7-5
Our little dream castle with every dream gone 

      B7                    Gdim           Gm7
Is lonely and silent -- the shades are all drawn,

    D7          D7/F#    G       Gm7
And my heart is heavy as I gaze upon

E A7           D
A cottage for sale.

      D                     F#7      C#m7-5
The lawn we were proud of is waving in hay;

     B7                 Gdim       Gm7
Our beautiful garden has withered away.

      D7         D7/F#     G            Gm7
Where we planted roses the weeds seem to say,

 E  A7          D
"A cottage for sale."


  F#7                       B7
Through every single window I see your face

     E7              Fdim   E7         A7  Cdim    A7
But when I reach the win - dow there's only empty space

     D                         F#7         C#m7-5
The key's in the mail box, the same as be - fore

    B7                  Gdim    Gm7
But no one is waiting for me anymore

     D7        D7/F#     G           Gm7	
The end of our story is told on the door

 E  A7          D
 A Cottage For Sale.
