Fdim Em         C7   B7 Bb7    A7      D 
They say into your early  life romance came 
  A7       D7   C#7  C7    B7     E7  
And in this heart of yours burned a flame 
        A6     A   A6 A   A7  D   Cdim  A7 
A flame that flickered one day and died away 
Em            C7 B7 Bb7  A7       D 
Then, with disillusion deep in your eyes 
 A7         D7   C#7   C7   B7      E7 
You learned that fools in love soon grow wise 
          A6    A   A6   A   A7 D     
The years have changed you somehow 
      F#m  G#   
I see you now 


C#7     Bbm 
Smoking and drinking 
F#    G#7         C#7 Fdim    F#   F#m G# 
Never thinking of tomorrow, nonchalant 
C#7         Bbm 
Diamonds shining 
Gdim     G#7         C# Fdim  F#m 
Dancing, dining with some man in a restaurant 
  A7          G7 
Is that all you really want 
Em    C7   B7  Bb7 A7         
No, Sophistcated Lady 
  D   A7        D7   C#7  C7   B7     E7 
I know  you miss the love you lost long ago 
       A7/13- A7       D 
And when nobody is nigh, you cry 
  Em7   G/B  D7M 
You cry, you cry

Written by Mitchell Parish, Duke Ellington and Irving Mills
