A Blossom Fell

Words & Music by Howard Barnes, Harold Cornelius & Dominic John
Recorded by Nat "King" Cole, 1955

   A7     D6        Cdim   Em7    A7
A blossom fell from off a tree;

            Em7          A7       A7+5     D
It settled softly on the lips you turned to me.

             D9     Fdim    Em7    A7
The gypsies say, and I know why,

          Em7            A7     A7+       D6     Cdim      A7
A falling blossom only touches lips that lie.

  A7+ 5   D6        Cdim  Em7    A7
A blossom fell, and very soon

  Em7     A7      G/B     A7    A7+5       D    DM7   D7
I saw you kissing someone new beneath the moon.

  D7+5        G        Gm      Gdim     D            
I thought you loved me;    you said you loved me,

             Em7    A7   Fdim     D
We planned together   to dream forever,

    D7+5      Em7    G/B     Gdim        D    Fdim
The dream has ended,     for true love died

            Em7     Cdim     G/B         A7        D
The night a blossom fell and touched two lips that lied.
