No One Ever Tells YouWords & Music by Carroll Coates & Hub Atwood
Recorded by Frank Sinatra, 1958
A Gm7 A Gm7 No one ever tells you what's like to love and lose, A Gm7 A Gdim How it feels to waken and have breakfast with the blues, D6 Dm6 A C#m7-5 F#7 How to go on living, how to face another day -- D9 Dm+7 Fdim E7 No one ever tells you the way. A Gm7 A Gm7 No one ever tells you how it feels to walk alone, A Gm7 A Gdim Listening for those footsteps through the echo of your own. D6 Dm6 A C#m7-5 F#7 Suddenly it hits you all those dreams weren't worth a dime, D9 Dm6 Bb9 E7 A 'Cause no one ever tells you in time. Bridge: Gm7 Gdim D DM7 D6 Long before the icy winds of winter, Dm7 Fdim A7 A7+5 D Autumn tells the swallows, "Time to fly." Gm7 A Gm7 A Why did she pretend, till the bitter end, Dm Dm6 Bm7-5 Fdim E7 Till it broke my heart to say, "Goodbye." A Gm7 A Gm7 And no one ever tells you that it's just another fling; A Gm7 A Gdim No one ever warns you when your heart begins to sing. D6 Dm6 A C#m7-5 F#7 Someone tells you later all is fair in love and war, D9 Dm6 Bb9 E7 A But no one ever tells you before. Coda: C#m7-5 F#7 It never comes easy, D9 Dm7 E7 A No one ever tells you before.
