B7 Em B+ Em7 Em6 B7 It was just one of those things, G Em7 C Cdim Just one of those crazy flings, G6 G/F# E7 C Am7 Cdim One of those bells that now and then rings, G6 Em F#m B7 Just one of those things. B7 Em B+ Em7 Em6 B7 It was just one of those nights, G Em7 G/B C Cdim Just one of those fabulous flights, G6 E7 C Am7 Cdim A trip to the moon on gossamer wings, G6 G/F# Em7 Am7 B7 Just one of those things. Bridge: Am Am+7 Am7 Am6 B7 If we'd thought a bit of the end of it G G/F# Em B7 When we started painting the town, C C/B Am7 Am7/G Gdim A-9 A7 We'd have been aware that our love af - fair C C/B Am Am7 B7 Was too hot not to cool down. B7 Em B+ Em7 Em6 B7 So, goodbye, dear, and a - men! G G7 C Cdim Here's hoping we meet now and then. G E7 C Cdim D9 G It was great fun, but it was just one of those things!
I listened to this one over and over, and have pretty much come to the conclusion that it can be played in a pretty wide variety of ways...which, I suppose, is my way of saying "Don't get too attached to this arrangement -- you can use it as a starting point and have a great time working in the variations you're most comfortable with."
