NB: I have included a couple of extended verses that don't appear

where those verses are shortened, use the A7 and D chords at the
end of the verse(in place of the last Em7 and A7)
[D6] Oh, will you never let me [C9]be? [D] Oh, will you never set me f[Bm]ree?
[E7] The ties that bo[A7]und us, [D7] are still a - ro[G]und us,

[Em7(b5)] [A7]

[Am7] And still those li[D7]ttle things re - [Gmaj7]main,
[Bm7] That bring me happ[E7]iness, or [Em7]pain![Em7(b5)] [A7sus4] [A7]
[D] A cigar - e[Bm]tte that bears a li[Em7]pstick's t[A7]races,
[D] [Bm] [Em7] [A7]  
 
 An airline ticket to ro-------mantic places, 

[D] And still my h[D7]eart has w[G]ings, these f[G]ool -[G/F#] ish th[Em]ings re - [Em7]mind me of [A7]you,
[D] A tinkling p[Bm]iano in the [Em7]next a - pa[A7]rtment,
[D] Those stumbling w[Bm]ords that told you..[Em7]. what my h[A7]eart meant,
[D] A fairgrounds pa[D7]inted sw[G]ings, these f[G]ool -[G/F#] ish th[Em]ings re - m[A7]ind me of y[D]ou!
[G] You came, [Em] you saw, [G] you conquered[Gm9] me,[Gm(b9)] [Gm7]
D6 Cdim Gm7(type2) A A7
When you did that to me, I, somehow, knew that this had to be!
[D] The winds of M[Bm]arch that make my.[Em7].. heart a da[A7]ncer,
[D] A tele - ph[Bm]one that rings, but.[Em7].. who's to an[A7]swer?
[D] Oh, how the g[D7]host of you cl[G]ings, these f[G]ool -[G/F#] ish th[Em]ings re - [Em7]mind me of [A7]you,
[D] Gardenia pe[Bm]rfume lingering..[Em7]. on a pi[A7]llow,
[D] Wild strawberries o[Bm]nly seven..[Em7]. francs a k[A7]ilo,
[D] And still my h[D7]eart has wi[G]ngs, these f[G]ool -[G/F#] ish th[Em]ings re - [Em7]mind me of [A7]you,
[D] The park at ev[Bm]ening when the [Em7]bell has so[A7]unded,
[D] The pier in Fr[Bm]ance with all the..[Em7]. gulls a - r[A7]ound it,
[D] The beauty t[D7]hat is Sp[G]ring, these f[G]ool -[G/F#] ish th[Em]ings re - m[A7]ind me of y[D]ou!
[G] I know... [Em] that this...[G] was bound to[Gm9] be,[Gm(b9)] [Gm7]
D6 Cdim Gm7(type2) A A7
These things have haunted me, for you've entirely en - chanted me!
[D] The sigh of mi[Bm]dnight trains in..[Em7]. empty sta[A7]tions,
[D] Silk stockings th[Bm]rown aside, dance..[Em7]. invi - t[A7]ations,
[D] Oh, how the g[D7]host of you cl[G]ings, these f[G]ool -[G/F#] ish th[Em]ings re - [Em7]mind me of [A7]you,
[D] The smile of G[Bm]arbo, and the s[Em7]cent of r[A7]oses,
[D] The waiters whi[Bm]stling as the [Em7]last bar c[A7]loses,
[D] The song that.[D7].. Crosby si[G]ngs, these fo[G]ol -[G/F#] ish th[Em]ings re - [Em7]mind me of [A7]you,
[D] [Bm] [Em7] [A7]  
 
 First daffo - dils, and long ex-----cited cables,

[D] And candle - l[Bm]ight on little..[Em7]. corner ta[A7]bles,
[D] And still my h[D7]eart has wi[G]ngs, these f[G]ool -[G/F#] ish th[Em]ings re - m[A7]ind me of y[D]ou!
[G] How strange, [Em] how sweet, [G] to find you s[Gm9]till,[Gm(b9)] [Gm7]
D6 Cdim Gm7(type2) A A7
These things are dear to me, that seem to bring you so near to me!
[D] The scent of smou[Bm]ldering leaves, the [Em7]wail of ste[A7]amers,
[D] Two lovers, [Bm]on the street, who...[Em7] walk like dre[A7]amers,
[D] Oh, how the g[D7]host of you cl[G]ings, these f[G]ool -[G/F#] ish th[Em]ings re - [Em7]mind me of [A7]you, just you!
[D]Ah, [Bm]ah, [Em7]ah, [A7]ah! [D]Ah, [Bm]ah, [Em7]ah, [A7]ah! (repeat, end on D)
