D        DM7         Em       Em7     Em6
Wrapped around each other, 

      A7              D        Em7    A7    D
Lying in each other's arms

                DM7       Em      Em7     Em6
That first cold winter together, 

          A7            D       Em7      A7      D
Trying so hard to stay warm;

               Bm         Bm7                     G            G6  G             
Watching those old movies,    falling in love so desperately

      G/F#         Em  B+ Em7    Em6          A     A7sus A7
Honey I was your hero,       and you were my leading la - dy.


A7 A+5     D   F#m  G            A7           D     F#m    G
We had it all,        just like Bogie and Bacall

         A7          D          Bm    Bm    G
Starring in our own late, late show,

        A7           D      F#m   G    A
Sailing away to Key Largo.

D      DM7         Em       Em7    Em
Honey can't you remember?  

     A7             D      Em    A7    D
We played all the parts,

D           DM7        Em       Em7   Em
That sweet scene of surrender 

          A7           D    Em7   A7   D
When you gave me your heart.

                Bm   Bm7            G      G6   G
Please say you will . . . play it again

      G/F#         Em   B+  Em7             Em6         A7sus4  A7
'Cause I love you still         Baby this can't be the end.

Repeat Refrain:

A7       A+5     A7    D     F#m    G
Here's lookin at you, Kid,

        A7                 D     F#m    G
Missing all the things we did.

       A7              D      Bm    Bm7   G
We can find it once again, I know,

                A7         D      F#m    G    A
Just like they did in Key Largo.
