  E    E7M         E7       F#m7 
They asked me how I knew  
B7               E    E7   A  
My true love was true 
Gdim    Edim     E6 
I   of course replied 
E          E7/13-    F#m7  
'Something here inside  
B7          E      C#m    A    B7 
Cannot be denied' 
  E      E7/13-         E7         F#m 
They said, 'Someday you'll find  
 B7             E    E7   A  
All who love are blind 
Gdim      Edim        E6 
When your heart's on fire 
 E       E7/13- F#m7 
You must realize  
B7                   E     Am7   E G G7 
Smoke gets in your eyes' 


       C          C/B           Am7  
So I chaffed them and I gaily laughed  
    Am7/G            G   Gdim  G  G7 
To think they could doubt my love 
  C          C/B         Am7 
Yet today my love has flown away 
 Am7/G  E  E7/13- F#m7   B7 
I am without  my  love. 
  E    E7/13-     E7        F#m 
Now laughing  friends deride  
   B7           E    E7   A 
Tears I cannot hide 
Gdim   Edim       E6    
So   I smile and say 
  E     E7/13-           F#m 
'When a lovely flame dies 
  B7/9     B7        E     F#m  E C#m 
Smoke gets in your eyes' 
  A  A7M  Am7 Am7/G E 
Smoke gets in  your  eyes
