In the cool of the evening when everything is gettin' kind of groovy
I call you up and ask if you would like to go with me and see a movie
But you say no, you've got some plans for the night
And then you stop and say... all right
Love is kinda crazy with a spooky little girl like you

You always keep me guessin', I never seem to know what you are thinkin'
And if some fellow looks at you, it's for sure your little eye will be
	a-winkin'
I get confused and I don't know where I stand
And then you smile... and hold my hand
Love is kinda crazy with a spooky little girl like you

[sax solo over same chords]

If you decide someday to stop this little game that you are playin'
I'm gonna tell you all the things my heart's been a-dyin' to be sayin'
Just like a ghost you've been a-hauntin' my dreams
So I'll propose... on Halloween
Love is kinda crazy with a spooky little girl like you

[rant to fade over Em7..A7/6]

old fart at play

PS: Good job on the chords, but I think that C9 should be Bbdim7.

-------


I believe this to be mostly correct. Use a root 5 barre chord form 
for the Em7 & Fm7 and a root 6 barre chord form for A13, Bb13, 
Bbdim7, and Bdim7.  Corrections are welcomed.
