Words & Music by Clarence Gaskill & Jimmy McHugh
Recorded by Billie Holiday, 1933
Also recorded as in instrumental by Pete Fountain, 1999*


A7+5  D9    D6          Dm+7   Dm6
Your eyes so blue, your kisses too; 

   A   C#m7-5      F#7
I never knew what they could do  

  D        D9        Bm7-5      E7       A    Edim    E7
I can't believe that you're in love with me.


A7+5   D9      D6        Dm+7   Dm6
You're telling ev' - ry - one I know 

    A      C#m7-5      F#7
I'm on your mind each place you go; 

      D       D9       Bm7-5       E7       A   D9   A   AM7
They can't believe that you're in love with me.

 
Bridge:

C#7           C#m7-5     C#7   F#7
I have always placed you far above me; 

B7     B9        Bm7-5      B7      E7
I just can't im - ag - ine that you love me. 



A7+5  D9   D6     Dm+7      Dm6
And  after all is said and done, 

    A        C#m7-5      F#7
To think that  I'm  the lucky one 

   D        D9       Bm7-5      E7       A    AM7   F#7
I can't believe that you're in love with me,


Coda:

  D        D9        Bm7-5     E7        A    D9    A
I can't believe that you're in love with me.


* This arrangement leans much more heavily on the 1999 Pete Fountain instrumental version than on the Billie Holiday vocal. Worth noting is the fact that Fountain's "Dixieland Classics" album, from which the single emerged, mis-names the song as "I Can't Believe You're Still In Love With Me."
