Words & Music by Douglas Cross & George Cory
Recorded by Tony Bennett, 1963

    Bm7           AM7           D      D9    AM7
The loveliness of Paris seems somehow sadly gay;

      Bm7          F#m    Bm7-5      Cdim      E7
The glory that was Rome is  of  an - oth - er day;

           Fdim                   Bm7-5     AM7      F#m7
I've been terribly alone and for - got -ten in Man - hat - tan;

  D        Bm7      Bm7-5 Cdim      E7
I'm going home to my city  by  the bay.

A  Fdim  Cdim  AM7  Cdim AM7     F#m      Bm    Bm+7
I  left  my  heart            in San Francisco;

           E    Bm7-5 E7     Cdim     AM7    Fdim    AM7
High on a hill,           it calls to me

E7 Bm7-5      AM7   Bm7-5  AM7     Cdim   AM7
To  be where little cable cars

 F#m   C#m             G#7
Climb halfway to the stars;

             A       B7        E7
The morning fog may chill the air,

Fdim       E7
I   don't care.

A  Fdim  Cdim  AM7  Cdim AM7   F#m      Bm   Bm+7
My love waits there,        in San Francisco,

Bm7  D9       E7  Bm7-5  E7      Bm7-5  F#7   Gdim   F#7
A - bove the blue            and windy sea;

F7  F#7      Bm7   Fdim          A       AM7    F#m
When I come home to you, San Francisco,

    F#m/E D  D9        E6  E7/6  A    Cdim   Fdim   AM7
Your golden sun will shine  on  me.
