Intro:   ||:   A   A6  |  AM7  A6  :||

A  A6  AM7       A6    A         A6  AM7   A6
Bro-------- ken-hearted melody,

D9   Bm7-5  E7    Bm7-5     A       A6   AM7   A6
Once-------   you were our song of love.

A  A6  AM7       A6       A         A6  AM7   A6
Now------- you just keep taunting me

D9   Bm7-5  E7    Bm7-5       E7  A (N.C.)     F#m   E7   F#m
With---------- the mem - o - ry  of        her ten - der love.

E7   A               F#m
Oh, broken-hearted melody,

A               F#m
Must you keep reminding me

D               E7
Of the lips I long to kiss

D               E7  (N.C.)           A         A6  AM7   A6
And the love I miss since she went away.

E7                      A A6  AM7   A6   E7
Night and day they play--               that

A               F#m
Broken-hearted melody

A                F#m
That she used to sing to me

D                  E7
When our love was young and bright

D                          E7        A         A6  AM7   A6
And she held me tight.  Suddenly I found

E7              A A6  AM7   A6   E7
I was heaven-bound,              Oh,

A              F#m
Broken-hearted melody,

A                   F#m
Won't you bring her back to me?

D             E7
Sing to her until she yearns

D                      E7              A         A6  AM7   A6
For when she returns  no more will you be

       E7                   A           E7
A broken-hearted melody--.
