The Way You Look Tonight

Words & Music:

Dorothy Fields & Jerome Kern


Bb6 Gm7  Cm7              F7

Someday, when I'm awfully low,

Bb6               G7b9

When the world is cold,

Cm7           F7                 Fm11  Bb7

I will feel a glow just thinking of--- you...

Eb6     Cm7     F13  F7 Bb6  Cm7  F7  Bb6  G7b9  Cm7  F7

And the way you look to-night.


Yes, you're lovely, with your smile so warm,

And your cheeks so soft.

There is nothing for me but to love you,

And the way you look tonight.



Db6       Bbm7      Ebm7       Ab9

With each word your tenderness grows,

Db6        Dbdim7  Ebm7  Ab7

Tearing my fear-- apart...

DbM7     Bbm7       Cm11          F7

And that laugh that wrinkles your nose,

Bb6           Gm7    Cm7        F7

It touches my foolish heart.


Lovely ... Never, ever change.

Keep that breathless charm.

Won't you please arrange it ?

F7       Fm11 Bb7     Eb6      Cm7      Dm7 F7 BbM7  Bb7

'Cause I love you ... Just the way you look tonight.


Eb6  F7  Eb6  Cm9  F7  Bb6
