Words & Music:

Errol Garner


        EM7        Bm7           E7          AM7

Look at me, I'm as helpless as a kitten up a tree.

                    Am7           D7

And I feel like I'm clinging to a cloud,

       EM7        C#m7

I just can't understand

      F#m7       B7           G#m7   C#7   F#m7   B7

I get misty just holding your hand.


Walk my way and a thousand violins begin to play.

Or it might be the sound of your hello,

That music I hear.

      F#m7       B7            E6

I get misty, the moment you're near.



Well, they say that you're leading me on.

E7                   AM7

But it's just what I want you to do.

AM7                  Am7

Don't you notice how hopelessly I'm lost?

D#7            F#7       Gm7(b5)  C7(b9)  F#m7  B7

That's why I'm following you.


On my own, would I wander through this wonderland alone?

Never knowing my right foot from my left,

My hand from my glove,

I'm too misty and too much in love.
