Gloomy Sunday  Billie Holiday


GLOOMY SUNDAY - Billie Holiday

Tabbed by: omnipotato
Tuning: Standard
This is sort of a combination of the original Hungarian version and Billie
Holiday's version (the bridge "Dreaming, I was only dreaming" is not included
since it wasn't in the original, and I think it kills the whole mood of the
[C#m7b5] [Am6/9] [A#dim7] [B7b9] [EmM7] [Emadd6] [Adim7]  

[Em]Sunday is [Em7]gloomy;
[C#m7b5]My hours are [Am]slumberless.
[Em]Dearest, the [Am6/9]shadows
[A#dim7]I live with are [B7]numberless.
[CM7]Little white flowers
[Am7]Will never a[B7]waken you;
[G]Not where the [Am6/9]black coach of
[A#dim7]Sorrow has ta[B7]ken you.
[Em]Angels have [Em7]no thought
[C#m7b5]Of ever retu[Am]rning you.
[Em]Would they b[Am6/9]e angry
[A#dim7]If I thought[B7] of joining you?
[B7b9] [B7] Gloom[Em]y Sunday
[Em]Gloomy is [Em7]Sunday;
[C#m7b5]With shadows I spe[Am]nd it all.
[Am7]My heart and I
Have decided to [B7]end it all.
[Am7]Soon there'll be candles
[C]And prayers that are [B7]said, I know.
[G]Let them not[C#m7b5] weep;
[C]Let them know that I'm[B7] glad to go.
[Em]Death is no [EmM7]dream,
[Em7]For in death I'm car[Emadd6]essing you.
[C]With the last breath of my soul
[F#m7]I'll be blessing [B7]you.
[Am] [Adim7] Gloomy[Em] Sunday
