The Man I LoveWords & Music by Ira Gershwin & George Gershwin
Recorded by Ella Fitzgerald, 1956
D D6 D7 Dm Dm6 Dm7 Someday he'll come along, the man I love, Am A9 Am Cdim B7 And he'll be big and strong, the man I love; GM7 Edim And when he comes my way, A7 A7sus4 A7 D Edim F#m A7 I'll do my best to make him stay. D D6 D7 Dm Dm6 Dm7 He'll look at me and smile; I'll un - der - stand, Am A9 Am Cdim B7 And in a little while, he'll take my hand, GM7 Edim And though it seems absurd, A7 A7sus4 A7 D G D G7 F#7 I know we both won't say a word. Bridge: Bm Bm7-5 CD7 Maybe I shall meet him Sunday, Gdim Bm Bm7 F#7 Maybe Monday, maybe not; Bm Bm7 E7 Still I'm sure to meet him one day -- Gdim Bm Cdim G A7 Maybe Tuesday will be my good news day. D D6 D7 Dm Dm6 Dm7 He'll build a little home, just meant for two Am A9 Am Cdim B7 From which I'll never roam -- who would? Would you? GM7 Edim And so all else above, A7 Em7 A7 D G6 D I'm waiting for the man I love.
