Tenderly

Louis Armstrong

A  F#7  Bm7/5-  Dm6  E7

A                 E7/5+        A7/9       D9
The evening breeze caressed the trees tenderly,
Bm7/5-               Dm7         A   (C#m7/5-)  Bm7/5- A
The trembling trees embraced the breeze tenderly.
Dm Dm6 E7     Dm   Dm6  E7
Then you and I came wandering by,
Fdim F#m7     B7       Bm7/5- E7
And lost in a sigh were we.

A                E7/5+       A7/9     D9
The shore was kissed by sea and mist tenderly;
Bm7/5-              Dm7           A   (C#m7/5-)  Bm7/5- A
I can't forget how two hearts met breathlessly.
Dm    Dm6    E7 Fdim  F#m7    Cdim   B7
Your arms opened wide and closed me in - side;
Cdim      A       Fdim    Bm7/5-  Dm7/5-   Fdim  A  D9 Bm7/5- E7
You took my lips, you took my love so ten - der - ly.

(Instrumental Interlude: first verse)

The shore was kissed by sea and mist tenderly;

I can't forget how two hearts met breathlessly.
Dm   Dm6    E7 Fdim  F#m7    Cdim   B7
Your arms opened wide and closed me in - side;
Cdim    A         Fdim   Bm7/5-  Dm7/5-   Fdim   A  D9 Bm7/5- A
You took my lips, you took my love so ten - der - ly.
