The Best Man  Nat King Cole

Intro Verse:
I g[D]uess I've [D9]got a [Dsus4]heart me[D]ant for f[E]ooling ar[E7/9]ound w[E]ith ch[E7]icks,
'Cause [A]in that l[G/B]ove dep[A7]artment, I k[D]now all the [Cdim]ladies' t[A7]ricks.
Now I [F#7]ran across a [Bm]girl one day, she was as s[F#7]harp as a girl could [Bm]be,
And I [E]wasn't sur[Bm7-5]prised to [Cdim]hear her s[E]ay that s[A]he really [G/B]went for [A7]me.
She [Edim]said I [A7]was the b[D]est man [F#m] who [G]ever knocked[Edim] on her do[D]or;
Edim A7 Dalt D G Edim D
She said I was the best man, the fella she'd waited for.
She s[D7]aid I was the b[G]est man at [Gm]dancing, and n[D]obody[Gdim] can de[D]ny
[Cdim]That w[E]hen it [Cdim]came to rom[A]ancin' I[Bm7-5] was the [A]A-plus [G/B]number[Cm7-5] one g[A7]uy.
But [Edim]then she [A7]met my be[D]st friend [F#m] and kn[G]ocked him right[Edim] off his p[D]ins,
Edim A7 Dalt D G6 Cdim G6
But still I wasn't worrried, 'cause the best man always wins.
The [D7]way it [G]all turned [G/F#]out, there[D6/9/F#] was no d[Em7]oubt
That I was b[D]est man[F#m] in the [B7]end;
[Cdim]Yes, I was the [E7/9]best man when she[Edim] married [A7]my best fr[D]iend.
Instrumental interlude: first half of refrain
Repeat Second Half of Refrain
So d[D7]on't you t[G5]hink you're b[G6]est til you [Fdim]pass the t[D]est
And you k[D7]now all the[C#m7-5] ladies' t[B7]ricks,
'Cause [E7/9]you'll wind[Bm7-5] up as the [E7/9]best man [Cdim]
While the [A]other guy[Edim] gets the ch[D]icks.
