When Joanna Loved MeWords & Music by Robert Wells & Jack Segal
Recorded by Tony Bennett, 1964 (#94)
Intro: C Bb9 C Bm7-5 E7 Today is just another day, tomorrow is a guess; Am Am+7 Am7 Am6 But yesterday, oh, what I'd give for yesterday, Dm Dm+7 Dm7 Dm6 G To relive one yesterday and its happiness... Dm7 Dm7-5 When Joanna loved me, CM7 CM7/6 Every town was Paris, Dm7 Dm7-5 Every day was Sunday, G7 C Edim Dm7 G7 Every month was May; Dm7 Dm7-5 When Joanna loved me, CM7 CM7/6 Every sound was music, Dm7 Dm7-5 Music made of laughter, G7 C Fdim C Laughter bright and gay. Bridge: FM7 Bb9 But when Joanna left me, C C/B Am7 May became December; Am7/G Fm Fm7 Bm7-5 E7 But, even in December, I remember Em7 A9 Bm7-5 G Her touch, her smile, and for a little while. Dm7 Dm7-5 She loves me, G7 CM7 CM7/6 And once again it's Paris, Dm7 Dm7-5 Paris on a Sunday, G7 C Fdim C And the month is May.
