Smoke gets in your eyes

Song Author Jerome Kern og Otto Harbach Lyrics by: Jerome Kern og Otto Harbach Performer: Nat King Cole og The Platters Submitted by: gilsi
[C]They asked how I [Dm7]knew,    
[G7]my true love was [C]true, [Caug]oh,      [F]oh.  
[Cdim]I of course [Cmaj7]replied:
[Am7]"Something here in[Dm7]side, [G7]cannot be de[C]nied".

[C]    [Bbdim]    [Dm7]    [Gaug]    
[C]They said, some day you’ll [Dm7]find    
[G7]all whose love are [C]blind, [Caug]oh,      [F]oh.  
[Cdim]When your heart’s on [Cmaj7]fire,      
[Am7]You must rea[Dm7]lize, [G7]smoke gets in your [C]eyes.

[C]    [F]    [C]    [D#7]    
[Ab]So I chaffed them and gaily laughed,
[Abmaj7]to think they could [Bbm7]doubt     [Am7] my     [Bb7]love    [D#7].    
[Ab]Yet today, my love has [G7]flown away,
I am [C]without[Cmaj7] my lo      [G7]ve.   [Gaug]    

[C]Now laughing friends de[Dm7]ride,    
[G7]Tears I cannot [C]hide, [Caug]oh,      [F]oh.  
[Cdim]So I smile and [Cmaj7]say:      
[Am7]“When a lovely flame [Dm7]dies,    
[G7]Smoke gets in your [C]eyes.
…in your [F]eyes
[C]Smoke gets in your [Fmaj7]eyes       [Caug]    
[Dm7]Smoke gets [Em/G]in your [Cmaj7]eyes      

They asked how I knew,
my true love was true, oh, oh.
I of course replied:
"Something here inside, cannot be denied".


They said, some day you’ll find
all whose love are blind, oh, oh.
When your heart’s on fire,
You must realize, smoke gets in your eyes.


So I chaffed them and gaily laughed,
to think they could doubt my love.
Yet today, my love has flown away,
I am without my love.

Now laughing friends deride,
Tears I cannot hide, oh, oh.
So I smile and say:
“When a lovely flame dies,
Smoke gets in your eyes.
…in your eyes
Smoke gets in your eyes
Smoke gets in your eyes
