You Go To My Head

Words & Music by Haven Gillespie & J. Fred Coots
Recorded by Frank Sinatra, 1945 and 1960

(E7) A        C#m     Dm7
You go to my head,

         G7            F          D6
And you linger like a haunting refrain,

      E7          A7      F             Am6      E7
And I find you spinning 'round in my brain

         A7-9           D            D6    Em7     A9
Like the bubbles in a glass of champagne.

(E7) A       C#m    Dm7
You go to my head

        G7               F         D6
Like a sip of sparkling Burgundy brew,

       E7      A7    F          Am6     E7
And I find the very mention of you

          A7-9        D             Em7    A7
Like the kicker in a Julip or two.


     D6                              G#7
The thrill of the thought that you might give a thought

        A6         A6/9
To my plea casts a spell over me;

         Gdim      G#7        C#m7         C#6
Still, I say to myself, "Get a hold of yourself,

          EbM7        G#7       C#
Can't you see that it never can be?"

E7  A         C#m      Dm7          
You go to my head

        G7                  F           D6
With a smile that makes my temp'rature rise,

E7     A7             F        Am6      B7
Like a summer with a thousand July's,

      E7-9         A                  Em7    A7
You intoxicate my soul with your eyes.


             Bm7-5            E7       Dm6
 Though I'm certain that this heart of mine

 A         C#m       F#m             A      Cdim      E7    Edim
 Hasn't a ghost of a chance in this crazy romance,

 Bm7-5  E7        A   Dm6  E7    E7+5        A    FM7    E    E7-5    E6
  You   go to my head,        you go to my  head.
