The Mood That I'm InWords & Music by Abner Silver & Al Sherman
Recorded by Billie Holiday, 1936
A F#m C#m7-5 Cdim G#7 Never dared to have your arms around me, G7 Gdim F#7 Not that I considered it a sin; F7 Fdim E But tonight I want your arms around me -- D9 Bm7-5 Cdim E7 It's the mood that I'm in. A F#m C#m7-5 Cdim G#7 Can it be the music that they're playin' G7 Gdim F#7 Or the magic of the violin F7 Fdim E That intrigues my heart into obeyin'? D9 Bm7-5 E7 D9 A It's the mood that I'm in. Bridge: Em7/9 Cdim A7/6 Maybe it's the cocktail that I'm sippin' D Em7 Edim D That helps to put me in this frame of mind. C#7 Fdim(III) C#7 Maybe it's be - cause of you I'm slippin' -- A Em7 D9 A7 Tonight I'm so romantic'ly inclined. A F#m C#m7-5 Cdim G#7 So speak to me of love in words so tender, G7 Gdim F#7 Let the rhapsody of life begin; F7 Fdim E I could give my heart in sweet surrender -- D9 Bm7-5 E7 D9 A It's the mood that I'm in.
