Where Or When

Words & Music by Richard Rodgers & Lorenz Hart, 1937
Recorded by Dion and the Belmonts, 1959

Intro: D - Bm - G - A  - G 

D            D6                   DM7     F#m
It seems we stood and talked like this before     

     G    G/F#     Em   Em7     G   G/F# Em  Em7   
We looked at each other in the same way then

G     G/F#     Em  Em7   G   G6   D     Bm     Em7      A7 
But I can't re-mem-ber where or when 

 D                  D6              DM7         F#m 
The clothes you're wearing are the clothes you wore 

     G    G/F#     Em     B+       G   G/F# Em  Em7 
The smile you are smiling you were smiling then

 G     G/F#    Em  Em7   G   G6   D   Bm    G   F#7 
But I can't re-mem-ber where or when 


Bm                Em            C#m7-5     F#7  
Some things that happen for the first time 

Bm          G    G/F#   Em  Em7    G6    A7 
Seem to be hap - pen - ing   a - gain 

DM7        D6                 F#m   D+   
And so it seems that we have met before

      Em        B7      Em     F#m
And laughed before and loved before   

     G   G/F#  A    A/C#   D    Bm    G    Gdim   D 
But who knows where  or  when.
