Intro verse:

Em7 A7        A7+5     DM7           Cdim
My love will leave you never,

   Em7          A7  A7+5  D
So kiss me good-bye and smile;

D7    Bm7    C#7            F#m
"Til then" can't mean "forever,"

        A         E7             Em7       A7
But it certainly could mean "a while."

Melody:

A7+5 D   Bm7              Em7            A7
Til then,    my darling, please wait for me;

A7+5 D   Bm7            Em7         A7
Til then,    no matter when it will be.

Edim  G6      Fdim   D6     B7              Em  Gm   A9
One  day we'll be together again  please wait til then


Edim  D     Bm7                   Em7     A7
Our  dreams      will live though we are apart;

A7+5  D   Bm7               Em7         F#7
Our love       I know will keep in our hearts.

Edim G6   Gm          Fdim    D6       B7      Em7  A9  D    C#7
Til then,     please think of me lovingly, and wait for me.

Bridge:

(C#7) F#m            C#7
Al- though there are oceans we must cross 

     F#m                    G#m7    C#7
And mountains that we must climb,

   F#m        C#7
I know every gain must have a loss, 

    F#m7          B7      Em7        A7
So pray that our loss is nothing but time.


Edim D    Bm7                Em7            A7
Til then,    we'll dream of what there will be;

A7+5  D   Bm7               Em6       F#7
Til then,     we'll call on each memory.

Edim G6  Fdim              DM7        B7
Til then,     when I will hold you again, 

Cdim   Em7  A9   D     Bm7    Fdim    A7
Please wait til then.


Coda:

Cdim    Em7 G/B A7 A7+5  D    Bm7    G     Gm     D
Please wait   til   then.
