From the movie "White Christmas"
G G5 C Am7 Sisters, sisters G G/F# Em G/B Am7 D7 There were never such devoted sisters; G Em D Am7 Never had to have a chaperone, no sir, G G/F# Em Am7 D7 G I'm there to keep my eye on her. G G5 C Am7 Caring, sharing G G/F# Em G/B Am7 D7 Every little thing that we are wearing; G G/F# Em D D7 Am7 When a certain gentleman arrived from Rome, G G/F# Em Am7 D7 G She wore the dress, and I stayed home. Bridge: C Am C G C Am C All kinds of weather, we stick together, G Fdim C The same in the rain and sun; C Am C G C Am C Two different faces, but in tight places, G Fdim C7 We think and we act as one. G G5 C Am7 Those who've seen us G G/F# Em G/B Am7 D7 Know that not a thing could come between us; G G/F# Em D D7 Am7 D7 E7 Many men have tried to split us up, but no one can. C Am Cm G G/F# E7 Lord help the mister who comes between me and my sister, G G/F# Em C Cm G And Lord help the sister who comes between me and my man.
*I had never known it, but Vera Ellen never actually sang in the 1954 film. Thanks to recent visitor Diana Carreiro, I learned that Ellen's parts were actually performed by two individuals. Though uncredited officially, the solo vocal parts generally attributed to Vera Ellen in the film were actually voiced by Trudy Stevens. Another vocalist, Gloria Wood, sang "background vocals" for Ellen in group numbers.
