Words & Music by Edward Heyman & John W. Green, 1934

D6    B7   G   Gdim     
Easy come, easy go -- 

D6         Bm7      G        G/F#      Em7
That's the way, if love must have it's day,

A7+5 D6    B7   G  G/F# Em7 A7     F#7 B7  G  A7
Then easy come,             let it go.

D6    B7    G    Gdim
No remorse, no regrets --

D6         Bm7   G     G/F#  Em7
We should part exactly as we met,

A7+5 D6    B7   G  G/F# Em7 A7  D   DM7  D7
Just easy come,            easy go.


G  G/F# Em7        A7         F#m    B7
We          never dreamt of romantic dan -  gers,

    G   G/F#         Em7              E7
But now      that it ends, let's be friends

    G   F#m  Bm7    Edim
And not two stran - gers.

D6    B7    G   Gdim
Easy come, easy go

D6      Bm7     G       G/F#   Em7
Here we are, so Darling, au revoir --

A7+5 D6    B7   G  G/F# Em7 A7  D6  Edim  Dalt
It's easy come,            easy go. 

This one was suggested by a visitor to the site, who also helped with a lyric transcription. While Anita O'Day's version is credited here, I had only a fragment of it to work with, and so I relied on a much more recent Diana Krall interpretation to flesh out the song.

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.
