Shadow of your smile  Tony Bennett


















 Gadd2  Gsus4add2       [kbd r.h. voicings: A-B-D-G, A-C-D-G]


        One[Gadd2] day we walked[Gsus4addA] along the sand
    Gadd2  Gadd#4 Gsus4add2	[Gadd#4: G-B-C#-D]

One day in early Spring
        [C#m7]You held a [F#m7]piper [Bm9]in your hand
    Bm9       E7     Asus4  Aadd2   [Bm9: F#-A-C#-D; Aadd2: B-C#-E]

To mend it's broken wing
        Now [Gm]I'll re[A7+5]member [Dm7]many a [Dm7/C]day
     Bm7-5  E7-9-5 Am9

And many a lonely mile
Am7 Cm6 Bm7 Em7 (r.h: F#-B-D)
The echo of a piper's song
        The [Am9]shadow [D9]of your [Gsus4]smile[Bsus4]
Verse 1:
        The shadow of your [F#m7]smile
        When [B13]you [B7-9+5]       are [Em9]gone[A13]
        Will follow all my d[Am7]reams
        And [D13]light[D7-9+5]       the [Gmaj9]dawn[C6/9]
              F#m7-5  B7-9-5 B7-9     Em7   Em9/D

Look into my eyes my love and see
        All the lovely [C#m7-5]things you [F#13]are  [F#7-9+5]        to[F#m7] me[B13]
Verse 2:
        Our [Em7]wistful little [F#m7]star
        Went [B13]far [B7-9+5]       too [Em9]high[A13#11]
        A teardrop kissed your [Am7]lips and [D9]so [D7-9/C]       did[Bm7-5] I
 E7-9-5 E7-9        Am7             Cm7

Now when I remember Spring
        [F9]All the joys that [Bm7]love can b[F9]ring
        [E13]    [E7-9+5]  I will be [A9]rememb[Eb9-5]ering
        [Am11/D]The shadow[Am7-5/D] of your sm[G]ile
Coda:
(string tag which I haven't transcribed yet)
(final chord sounds like a polychord: G major in the left hand,
A major in the right, with vibes adding a high G# on top)
