What Good Am I Without You

Words & Music by Sammy Gallop & Don Rodney
Recorded by Frankie Laine, 1956(?)

D          A7       Edim     D7
I'm like a song that no one sings,

Em         B7      Cdim       A7
I'm like a bird without its wings;

Dalt       Edim G/B   G   Ediim    Gm7
I'm like a star that fell from the sky --

D    F#m    B7 Cdim    Em7  A7
What good am I without you?

D            A7       Edim     D7
Where is the sun that used to shine?

Em           B7      Cdim       A7
Where is the one who once was mine?

Dalt      Edim G/B   G    Edim    Gm7
Aimless am I, like clouds drifting by --

D    F#m    B7     A7   D
What good am I without you?


Bm  F#7          E7-9  Fdim Edim
You are the very breath  I  take,

Bm        F#7       Bm   F#7 B7     
The every wish and prayer I make.

Bm  F#7           E7-9   Fdim
You are so much a part of me,

Bm7-5  D    F#m  Bm    Bm7/E E7/9     A7
You'll al - ways be the very heart of me.

D          A7     Edim      D7
How can I live without you near,

Em          B7   Cdim       A7
When I'm so mad about you dear,

Dalt      Edim G/B      G  Edim Gm7
How can I laugh when I want to  cry --

D    F#m    Bm7      Bm7/E Cdim(IV) C7     B7
What good am I with - out    you,   Dar - ling,

G    B7     Gdim       A7/6  D
What good am  I  with - out you?
