Don't Get Around Much AnymoreWords & Music by Bob Russel & Duke Ellington, 1942
Recorded by Mel Torme*, 1945
(G) C Dm7 Cdim C Missed the Saturday dance; C/B A Bm7-5 Cdim A7 Heard they crowded the floor. Fdim D7 G7 Couldn't bear it without you-- (N.C.) Fdim G G7 C Edim Gdim G7 Don't get around much anymore. (G) C Dm7 Cdim C Thought I'd visit the club; C/B A Bm7-5 Cdim A7 Got as far as the door, Fdim D7 G7 They'd have asked me about you-- (N.C.) Fdim G G7 C Fdim C Don't get around much anymore. Bridge: F6 Bb9 Darling, I guess CM7 C C7 My mind's more at ease; D9 D7 B7 But nevertheless, Em B+ Em7 Dm7 G Why stir up mem-o-ries? (G) C Dm7 Cdim C Been invited on dates; C/B A Bm7-5 Cdim A7 Might have gone, but what for? Fdim D7 G7 Awfully different without you-- (N.C.) Fdim G G7 C Fdim C Don't get around much anymore, (N.C.) Fdim G G7 C Fdim C G CM7 Don't get around much anymore.
*This version is a synthesis of probably every recording of this song I've ever heard. It's almost unfair to credit it to any one singer, since the song has been recorded over 250 times, and popular versions were done by Tormé, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Nat "King" Cole, Tony Bennett, The Mills Brothers, Patti Page…even even in the 90s by Harry Connick Jr.
