C Cmaj7 C7 F Fm6
I walk along the city streets you used to walk along with me,
C         Cmaj7           C7                F
And every step I take recalls how muchin love we used to be.
            

                  C        G7            C7                    F
Oh, how can I forget you, when there is always something there to
       G7  C
remind me
C7                      F        C
Always something there to remind me
C7                      F        C
Always something there to remind me
C Cmaj7 C7 F Fm6 When shadows fall, I pass the small cafe where we would dance at night C Cmaj7 C7 F And I can't help recalling how it felt to kiss and hold you tight C G7 C7 F Oh, how can I forget you, when there is always something there to G7 remind me
C7                     F         C
Always something there to remind me


      Em7      Am7                  Fmaj7    G
I was born to love you, and I will never be free
                    C
You'll always be a part of me



If you should find you miss the sweet
And tender love we used to share
Just come back to the places where we used to go,
And I'll be there

Oh, how can I forget you, 
When there is always something there to remind me
Always something there to remind me
       Em7     Am7                 Fmaj7     G
I was born to love you, and I will never be free
                   C
You'll always be a part of me
                 C7               F              G7 C
'Cause there is always something there to remind me

Listen to the Sandie Shaw recording. You may be interested in seeing All Saints singing this very
famous song. Listen to the horns! :-)

When Dionne Warwick sings this beautiful song, it stays with me always. It is one of the best songs
of the 60s.
