Rudy Vallee & His Connecticut Yankees - 1934

This arrangement is so easy to play.
Here's the chord chart I have, arranged by Phil Gaberman in the Key of C.
 C                               F#dim
You oughta be in pictures, 
 Dm7    G
You’re wonderful to see, 
 Dm   G
You oughta be in pictures, 
 C                   Dmsus4    G7+5
Oh what a hit you would be! 
 C                                  C   F#dim
Your voice would thrill a nation, 
 Dm7  G
Your face would be adored, 
You’d make a great sensation 
 C                                Baug     B7
with wealth and fame your reward; 
 Em  G+                Em          G+
And if you should kiss the way you kiss, 
 Em           G+    A9
When we’re alone, 
 G     Em              Am9     D7
You’d make ev’ry girl and man 
         Am9            D7               G7
A fan worshiping at your throne. 
 C                                       F#dim
You oughta shine as brightly 
 Dm7  G
As Jupiter and Mars; 
 Dm7   G             Dm
You oughta be in pictures, 
 G7  Dm  G7  C
My star of stars. 
As 2012 nears the end, I wanted to wish you and yours Joy for the new year. I hope it's a year of praise!
With Love,
