Hi there! I'm back from Spring Break and I hope you had a wonderful, special Easter! Well, I'm a huge fan of Diana Krall and wanted to share this popular song with you. Do you have a favorite of hers?

The song, I Don't Stand A Ghost Of A Chance  was originally written in 1932. I love Diana Krall's style of playing.  This song is in the Key of C with 4/4/ time signature, moderately.

Chords from The Best of Diana Krall 



G+ C                G+
I need your love so badly,

   Gm6      A7       Fm6
I love you, oh,  so  madly,

    C        Am     D7         G7+5        C    C#dim
But I don't stand a ghost of a chance with you!


G7 C                   G+
I thought at last I'd found you

    Gm6    A7          Fm6
But other loves sur - round you,

    C       Am       D7        G7+5        C
And I don't stand a ghost of a chance with you.



Bridge:

G7                       G7+5                 C       Am

Am6                        B7                    E9        
You might dis - cov - er   that I'm the lov - er meant for you,

   G7+5   
And I'd be true,


     C                  G+
But what's the good of scheming,

   GM6   A7         Fm6
I know I must   be dreaming
    C       Am       D7        G7+5        C  F9  C6 
For I don't stand a ghost of a chance with you.
