Spring Can Really Hang You Up The MostWords & Music by Fran Landesman & Tommy J. Wolf, Jr.
Recorded by Bette Midler, 1990
A F#m D9 E7 Dm6 Once I was a sentimental thing; A F#m D9 E7 AM7 Threw my heart away each spring. Fdim AM7 Cdim Bm7-5 AM7 Now a spring romance hasn't got a chance. D9 Bm7-5 AM7 C#m7-5 F#m7 Promised my first dance to winter -- D9 Bm7-5 E7 A B7 D9 D6 Dm6 Fdim E7 All I've got to show's a splinter for my lit - tle fling. A D9 C#m7 Dalt Spring this year has got me feeling AM7 D9 Bm7-5 AM7 C#m7-5 Like a horse that never left the post. DM7 D6 Dm+7 Dm6 I lie in my room, staring up at the ceiling. D9 Bm7-5 E Bm7-5 AM7 Spring can really hang you up the most. A Bm7 C#m7 Dalt Morning's kiss wakes trees and flowers, AM7 D9 Bm7-5 AM7 C#m7-5 And to them I'd like to drink a toast. DM7 D6 A C#m7-5 B7 But I walk in the park just to kill the lonely hours; D9 Bm7-5 E Bm7-5 AM7 Spring can really hang you up the most. Gdim A Gdim G A All afternoon the birds twitter-twitt. Gdim A Gdim G A I know the tune -- "This Is Love, This Is It." Am7 G A Am7 G A Heard it before, and don't I know the score; E C#m7-5 A B7 And I've decided that spring is a bore. E A9 AM7 D9 Love seems sure around the new year; AM7 C#m7-5 D9 Bm7-5 AM7 C#m7-5 Now it's April, love is just a ghost. C#7 DM7 D6 Dm6 A C#m7-5 B7 Spring arrived on time, only what became of you, dear? D9 Bm7-5 E Bm7-5 C#m7-5 F#7 Spring can really hang you up the most. D9 Bm7-5 E Bm7-5 AM7 Spring can really hang you up the most. Gdim A Gdim G A Love came my way, I thought it would last. Gdim A Gdim G A We had our day, now it's all in the past. Am7 G A Am7 G A Spring came along, a sea - son of song, E C#m7-5 A B7 Full of sweet promise, but something went wrong. E A9 AM7 D9 Doctors once prescribed a tonic; AM7 C#m7-5 D9 Bm7-5 AM7 C#m7-5 Sulfur and molasses was the dose. C#7 DM7 D6 Dm6 D B7 Didn't help one bit -- my condition must be chronic. D9 Bm7-5 E Bm7-5 C#m7-5 F#7 Spring can really hang you up the most. D9 AM7 D9 AM7 All alone, the party is over. D9 Dm6 AM7 C#m7-5 B7 Old man winter was a gracious host. Cdim DM7 Dm6 A C#7 F#7 But when you keep praying for snow to hide the clover, D9 D E7/6 E7 Bbm9 E7 Fdim AM7 Spring can real - ly hang you up the most.
