I have a few more songs left to share with you from The Best of Diana Krall song book. I am sharing the chord chart with you and of course, some chord inversions to know. I've started back to teaching and so my lesson planner is labeled with goals to achieve at all different levels. In between lesson prep, I enjoy listening to a relaxing CD of Diana's and a new artist I like, Micah Barnes. I'll be sharing about him more later on.
Chords and Lyrics: Do Nothin' Til You Hear From Me
From Stepping Out Album, 1993
Words and music by Duke Ellington and Bob Russell (1943)
Key of G
Do nothin' til you hear from me,
Pay no attention to what's said,
Cm G Am7
Why people tear the seam of anyone's dream
D9 G G#dim
Is over my head.
Am7 D9 G Gmaj7
Do nothin' til you hear from me.
At least consider our romance;
Cm G Am7 D9
If you should take the word of others you've heard
G Am7 G
I haven't a chance.
Cm Eb Ebmaj7 Eb Ebmaj7
True I've been seen with someone new
Cm Eb Ebmaj7 Eb Eb9
But does that mean that I'm untrue
Am7 D7 G E9 Gm
When we're apart the words in my heart
D A7 D7
Reveal how I feel about you.
Some kiss may cloud my memory
And other arms may hold a thrill
Cm G Am7 D9
But please do nothin' till you hear it from me
G C Cm G
And you never will.
