Blue Moon  Traditional

Blue M[G]oo[Em]n, [C]   you left me s[D]tanding here al[G]one  [Em]      [C]
Without a s[D]ong in my h[G]ear[Em]t, [C]without a l[D]ove of my [G]own[Em]    [C]   [D]
Blue [G]Moo[Em]n,  [C] you knew what [D]I was th[G]ere for[Em]     [C]
You heard me s[D]ay a pr[G]ayer fo[Em]r,  [C] someone I r[D]eally c[G]are [Em]for  [G]

And s[Am]uddenly there app[D]eared bef[G]ore me [Em]
The o[Am]nly one my a[D]rms could ever h[G]old  [Em]
I he[Am]ard somebody wh[D]isper, "Please a[G]dore [Em]me"
And [A7]all at once my moon had turned to go[D7]ld
Blue Moon, now I'm no longer alone
Without a song in my heart
Without a love of my own

I've made some corrections to the lyrics, I'm
assuming that it's the Rogers & Hart version that Ella Fitzgerald sang.

I prefer the sound of Em rather than Em7 but really either one works fine.
At the end of the second verse after " for" you could optionally use C Bm7 E7 instead of Em C D.
For the troublesome two lines starting with "I heard somebody whisper..." I'd suggest Cm7 F Bbmaj7 and then D7 A7 Am7 D7.

Been trying to find the chords for this song for ages and can't seem to come up with the right combinations.

Your chords for the verses are OK except I substitute Em7 for your EM, Am7 for your C and Am, and D7 for your D.

I get hung up on the chorus line " I heard somebody...". There is a change of key in the melody that I haven't quite worked out but I think it modulates 2 steps to F or F7 chord and that's where I get hung up. Thanks for your work though.
