There I GoWords & Music by Hy Zaret & Irving Weiser
Recorded by Vaughn Monroe, 1940 (#1)
D9 DM7 D6 G Gdim There I go, leading with my heart again; D9 DM7 Bm7 G Edim And there I go, acting not so smart again. D B7 G A7 A7+5 D Bm G A7 But though it's unwise, I can't disguise my love. D9 DM7 D6 G Gdim Though I know too much love may curb the fire, D9 DM7 Bm7 G Edim Yet, there I go, led astray by my desire -- D B7 G A7 A9 D G D C#7 There's no golden rule to guide a fool in love. Bridge: Bb A I tell my heart, "Be careful, D E7 A Or you'll find that you dream alone." Bb D Cdim I'm wise it's true, what good does it do? Em Em7 A My heart has a mind of its own. D9 DM7 D6 G Gdim There I go, spilling all the dreams I knew, D9 DM7 Bm7 G Edim And there I go thrillingly in love with you. D B7 G A7 A9 D G D Don't know if you care, Darling, but there I go.
Inspiration comes from strange sources. To be honest, I had never heard this song, but happened to run across a list of songs which reached #1 in whatever year -- so I figured, maybe I oughta check it out and see why people liked it. I found I kinda liked it, too.
