Lady Day  Frank Sinatra

Her [Am]day was [Fdim]born in sh[G]ades of [G9]blue,

Her [CM7]song was sad the [Am]words were true;

Her [D9]morning c[Dm]ame too f[G]ast too s[G9]oon,

And [CM7]died before the [Am]afternoon

Poor [G]la -[Cdim] dy  [Dm]day [Gdim]could [G7]use s[G]ome [CM7]love, some [Am]sunshine,

[Dm]Lady[Dm+7] day [Dm7]has t[G]oo [Fdim]much r[CM7]ain

Poor [G]la -[Cdim] dy  [Dm]day [Gdim]could [G7]use s[G]ome s[CM7]pring, some [Am]breezes,

[Dm]Lady[Dm+7] day [Dm7]has t[G]oo [Fdim]much p[CM7]ain.

It's [Am]such a [Am+7]lonely f[Dm]ace,[G7]   it's such a cloudy [CM7]sky,  [Am]

[Dm]So many s[G]hadows[Fdim] in  [G7]her [Am]eye. [Am+7]

So [Am]many [Am+7]empty dr[Dm]eams,[G7]   so many bitter t[CM7]imes, [Am]

Just a h[Dm]andful of[Fdim] broken rh[Am]ymes.

Poor [G]la -[Cdim] dy  [Dm]day [Gdim]could [G7]use [G]a sm[CM7]ile, some k[Am]indness,

[Dm]Lady[Dm+7] day [Dm7]has t[G]oo [Fdim]much r[CM7]ain.

Poor [G]la -[Cdim] dy d[Dm]ay c[Gdim]ould u[G7]se s[G]ome [CM7]dreams, some f[Am]lowers;

[Dm]Lady[Dm+7] day [Dm7]has t[G]oo [Fdim]much p[CM7]ain.

J[Am]ust too [Am+7]much to [Dm]say,[G7]   just to much to k[CM7]now,  [Am]

Too l[Dm]ittle t[G]ime[Fdim] to  [G7]say, “Hel[Am]lo.” [Am+7]

And t[Am]hen the e[Am+7]vening c[Dm]omes,[G7]   and now she doesn't [CM7]cry,  [Am]

And [Am+7]it's too l[Dm]ate to[Fdim] say, “Good-[Am]bye.”
