Stay As Sweet As You Are


This perennial hit was introduced by Lanny Ross in the movie musical, "College Rhythm," starring Joe Penner, Jack Oakie and Helen Mack. (Paramount, 1934) I love Nat King Cole's voice. Have a listen on the YouTube video below.

I Get Along Without You Very Well: Diana Krall

The song, I get Along Without You Very Well (Except Sometimes) was written in 1938. I love the moderate tempo Diana Krall plays in the Key of Bb. I've listed the chords below along with a chord breakdown. Listen to her voice and see her perform in Paris on YouTube.

I've been collecting Diana Krall music and songbooks for quite some time now. She is an amazing, gifted musician. Do you have a favorite song of hers?

I Get Along Without You Very Well

Words & Music by Hoagy Carmichael, inspired by a poem written by J.B. Thompson



Intro


Cm7  Cm7/G  Cm7b5/Gb  F7


Bb6              Cm7 F7/C Cm7/F F7 Bb      Edim7   Cm7
I get along without you very well,     of course I do;

F7          Cm7  F7/C   F7                Cm7     F7/C   Cm7
Except when soft rains fall and drip from leaves, then I recall

    F7              Cm7       Ebm6    Bb       Edim7    Cm7 F7
The thrill of being sheltered in your arms, of course I do. 

      Cm7            Ebm/F       Bb  Gm7 Cm7 F7
But I get along without you very well.


Bb6                  Cm7  F7/C  Cm7/F F7 Bb      Edim7    Cm7 
I've for - got - ten you, just like I should, of course I have;

 F7       Cm7   F7/C F7                Cm7   F7/C     Cm7
Except to hear your name, or someone's laugh that is the same.

     F7                             Bb Eb/Bb Bb
But I've forgotten you just like I should.


    Bb7 Eb6     Ebm    Bb
What a guy!    What a fool am I 

    Cm                Ebm/F       F7       Bb Bbmaj7 Bb7 
To think my breaking heart could kid the moon.

          Eb6                D7         Gm
What's in store?   Should I 'phone once more?

          C7                     C7/F F
No, it's best that I stick to my tune.


Bb6             Cm7 F7/C Cm7/F F Bb    Edim7    Cm7 
I get along without you very well, of course I do;

F7        Cm7  F7/C F7                  Cm7 F7/C    Cm7            
Except perhaps in spring...but I should never think of spring,

    F7                CM7      Ebm6     Bb  Eb/Bb  Bb
For that would surely break my heart in two.
