Recorded by Linda Ronstadt, 1984
G Gdim Bm7-5 E7 Am Am7 F7 D7 My old flame . . . I can't even think of his name, G C7 F7 Bb6 Gdim But it's funny, now and then, how my thoughts go flashing back again D A7 Am7-5 D7 D7+5 To my old flame. G Gdim Bm7-5 E7 Am Am7 F7 D7 My old flame . . . my new lovers all seem so tame, G C7 F7 Bb6 Gdim For I haven't met a gent so magnificent or elegant D7 A7 F7 As my old flame. Bridge; Bb Am7-5 C#m7-5 I've met so many who had fascinatin' ways, G7 C7sus4 C7 A fascinatin' gaze in their eyes; F7 D7 Gsus4 Some who took me up to the skies, A7 D7 C#m7-5 But their attempts at love were only imitations of G Gdim Bm7-5 E7 Am Am7 F7 D7 My old flame . . . I can't even think of his name, G C7 F7 Bb6 Gdim But I'll never be the same until I discover what became Am C#m7-5 G Of my old flame.
