the Man I Love

Ira & George Gershwin


Song : C

F F6 F7 Fm Fm6 Fmaj7
Someday he'll come along, the man I love,
Cm C9 Cm Ebdim7 D7
And he'll be big and strong, the man I love;
Bbmaj7 Gdim7
And when he comes my way,
C7 C7sus C7 F Gdim7 Am C7
I'll do my best to make him stay.

F F6 F7 Fm Fm6 Fmaj7
He'll look at me and smile; I'll un - der - stand,
Cm C9 Cm Ebdim7 D7
And in a little while, he'll take my hand,
Bbmaj7 Gdim7
And though it seems absurd,
C7 C7sus C7 F Bb F Bb7 A7
I know we both won't say a word.

Bridge :
Dm Dmaj7b5 Eb F7
Maybe I shall meet him Sunday,
Bbdim7 Dm Dmaj7 A7
Maybe Monday, maybe not;
Dm Dmaj7 G7
Still I'm sure to meet him one day
Bbdim7 Dm Ebdim7 Bb C7
Maybe Tuesday will be my good news day.

F F6 F7 Fm Fm6 Fmaj7
He'll build a little home, just meant for two
Cm C9 Cm Ebdim7 D7
From which I'll never roam -- who would? Would you?
Bbmaj7 Gdim7
And so all else above,
C7 Gmaj7 C7 F Bb6 F
I'm waiting for the man I love.
