Words & Music by Sammy Cahn & Jimmy Van Heusen
Recorded by Frank Sinatra, 1965

Em7       Edim     A7      D6  Fdim Bm
I'll only miss her when I think of  her

F#m       Em7    Edim Gdim      B   B7
And I'll think of her  all the time

Cdim         G       G/F#    Em7
Likely I'll spend my days 

Edim        D          D+5
Hearing her turn of a phrase

 A7   G/B A7    D   F#m     B7
Things I found hard     to praise, 

       E7        E7-9     A7
Right now, would seem sublime

 A   Em7 Cdim
The truth is

 Em7       A7      Edim       A        F#m     Bm
I'll only miss her when some stranger laughs

  G         Edim       A7  Edim Gdim   Bm   Bm7/E
'Cause it's still her laugh my  heart hears

Edim      G       G/F#
Maybe in time, I guess, 

     Em7         Edim       A7     Em7 A7   D
The longing will grow the slight - est bit less

    Gdim   D   A7   D      D+5   G      F#7   Em7   B7
And there will be moments, yes, when it dis - ap - pears;

B7/F# Cdim B7      E7/9 E7  Edim    D        F#m   B7
I'll   bet I  for - get her com - plete - ly

Cdim    Em7   Edim    A7   D 
 In a - bout a hun - dred years
