G    Em7   Am7          D7
I've told every little star

Bm7-5     E7     Am7       F7
Just how sweet I think you are --

G      G/F#   Am7  D7   G    G/F#  Em7  Am7   D9
  Why haven't  I  told you?

G    Em7  Am7            D7
I've told ripples in a brook,

Bm7-5    E7      Am7   F7
Made my heart an open book --

G     G/F#    Am7   D7   G    GM7   G7
  Why haven't  I   told you?


C        C/B Am7 Am7/G  Dm7    G7
Friends  ask  me "Am    I  in love?"

   C   C/B  AM7  Am7/G Dm7     G7    
I al - ways ans - wer "Yes."

Bm7-5             E7
Might as well confess --

Am     Am7           D7     D7+
If  I  don't, they guess.

G     Em7     Am7       D7
Maybe you may know it, too;

Bm7-5   E7      Am7    F7
Oh, my darling, if you do,

G     G/F#    Am7  D7  B7    E7           
  Why haven't you told me?

G   G/F#    Am7  D7   G    Gdim    Am7 alt    G
Why haven't you told me?

*Kottler's web site (justjazz.com) is an excellent source of information on how to re-harmonize a song, branching out from its basic chords to provide more color. For a solo accoustic guitarist, it's a site I highly recommend.

The lyric and guitar chord transcriptions on this site are the work of The Guitarguy and are intended for private study, research, or educational purposes only. Individual transcriptions are inspired by and and based upon the recorded versions cited, but are not necessarily exact replications of those recorded versions.
