Your fav' - rite kind of mu - sic,

And that re - minds me, dear, of you.

E          B7      Cdim

Your fav' - rite shade of roses,

And that reminds me too of you, dear.

My heart re - minds me I love you. 

*This chart (as, indeed, does much of guitardom) owes a generous tip of the hat to Andrew Rogers and Andrews Ace Guitar Tabs -- but in this case, for the starting point, not the final result. I believe Andrew's version used the Four Seasons as his audio source; I used Kay Starr's, and strove to develope an accompaniment to replicate the song more fully.

Ironically, though Starr's version provided the audio source, hers has never been the version that first "hit" me: the credit for that first impact is the Della Reese version that preceded it on the charts, though under the slightly-different-title of "And That Reminds Me." Memory plays tricks, however, because now, when listening to both in a straight-up comparison, it is Starr's that sounds most like what I remember the song sounding like.
