D Em7/9 Em7 Em7/9 A7 Gm7 Gdim When Sun - ny gets blue, her eyes get gray and cloudy, D Em F#m7 Fm7 Then the rain begins to fall. Em7 Gm7 Dm7 Fm7 Pitter-patter, pitter-patter, love is gone so what can matter? Em7 A7 D B7 No sweet lovin' man comes to call. D Em7/9 Em7 Em7/9 A7 Gm7 Gdim When Sun - ny gets blue she breathes a sigh of sadness D Em F#m7 Fm7 Like the wind that stirs the trees, Em7 Gm7 Dm7 Fm7 Wind that sets the leaves to swayin' like some violins are playin' Em7 A7 D D6 Weird and haunting mel-o-dies. Bridge: Em7 A7 D Bm7 People used to love to hear her laugh, see her smile-- Em7 A7 D D6 That's how she got her name. Bm7-5 E7 AM7 F#m7 Since that sad affair she's lost her smile, changed her style-- Bm7-5 E7 Em7 A7 Somehow she's not the same. Em7/9 Em7 Em7/9 A7 Gm7 Gdim But mem - 'ries will fade and pretty dreams will rise up D Em F#m7 Fm7 Where her other dreams fell through; Em7 Gm7 Dm7 Fm7 Hurry, new love, hurry here to kiss away each lonely tear, Em7 Gdim F#m7 Fm7 And hold her near when Sunny gets blue. Coda: Em7 Gm7 Dm7 Fm7 Hurry, new love, hurry here to kiss away each lonely tear, Em7 Gdim A7 D Bm7 G/B G/Bb D And hold her near when Sunny gets blue.
