D Cdim G/E A7 Gdim D DM7 Bm Poor But - ter - fly 'neath the blossoms wait -ing; D6 F#7 B7 Poor Butterfly, for she loved him so. B7 E7 A9 A7 D D9 Bm The moments pass into hours, the hours pass into years, Bm7/A E7sus4 E7 Em7 G/B A7sus4 A7 And as she smiles through her tears, she murmurs low, D Cdim G/E A7 Gdim D DM7 Bm "The moon and I know that he'll be faith - ful; D6 F#7 B7 I'm sure he'll come back, by and by. Em7 Gm D DM7 But if he don't come back, then I never sigh or cry -- D Fdim Em7 A7 G/B A7 D I just must die." Poor But - ter - fly.
