With the parting of the ways

You took all my happy days

And left me lone - ly nights

Morning never comes too soon

I can face the af - ter - noon

But oh!  Those lone - ly nights

I feel your arms around me 

      B7    Cdim   B7
Your kisses linger yet

You taught me how to love you 

     G6  Cdim G6 G/B    A   A7+5
Now teach me  to for - get

     D        Bm7     F#7
You broke my heart a million ways 

G        Em7          D     B7
When you took those happy days

G    E7      A    A7+5  D 
And left me lone - ly nights
