Recorded by Jo Stafford (1944?)
D Bm G Edim This isn't sometimes, this is al - ways. Em7 G/E G6/E G/B Em7 G Edim This isn't may - be, this is al - ways. D D6 A G G/F# G/E Em7 A7sus4 A7 This is love, the real beginning of for - ev - er. D Bm G Edim This isn't just mid-summer mad - ness, Em7 G/E G6/E Em7 G Edim A passing glow, a mo - ment's glad - ness -- D Bm7 DM7 B7 Em7 Yes, it's love; I knew it on the night we met. Em B+ Em7 Em6 You tied a string around my heart, D DM7 Fdim Em7 So how can I for - get you? D Bm7 Em7 A7 Edim D With every kiss I know that this is al - ways.
Here's yet another case that proves the ol' Guitarguy ain't nearly as well-informed as he'd like to think he is.
I had never heard -- nor even heard of -- this song until the last month. A visitor to the site, Herve S., asked for three songs (all of which made this month's additions) but this is one I was not remotely familiar with; still, judging from who wrote it, I had a gut feeling I'd like it, so I searched it out. Turns out I was right -- it's a beauty to listen to, if you haven't heard it.
And thanks, Herve, for the suggestions!
