Intro Verse: G Am7 I was a stranger in the city; GM7 G7 Am7 D9 Out of town were the people I knew. G F#7 I had that feeling of self-pity -- Bm Bm7 Bm7-5 E7 What to do? What to do? What to do? Am7 Cdim G9 The outlook was de - cid - ed - ly blue; G6 Bm Am6 Am7 E9 But as I walked through the foggy streets alone, Fdim Bn Fdim Am7 D7 G Am7 G It turned out to be the luckiest day I've known. Melody: D7 G Fm6 Am7 D9 Cdim A foggy day in London town G GM7 Gm7 Gm6 A7/6 A7 D9 Had me low had me down.
