Intro: notes/chords to last line of last verse.

Capo: 2nd fret/key: e/play: d
[a7] today i [d] passed you [a7] on the [d] street
[d7] and my [g] heart fell at your [d] feet
I can't [a7] help it if i'm still in love with [d] you
[a7] somebody [d] else stood [a7] by your [d] side
[d7] and he [g] looked so satis-[d] fied
I can't [a7] help it if i'm still in love with [d] you. ... [d7]

A [g] picture from the past came slowly [d] stealing
As i [a7] brushed your arm and walked so close to [d] you ... [d7]
Then [g] suddenly i got that old time [d] feeling
I can't [a] help it if i'm still in love with [d] you.

It's hard to know another's lips will kiss you
And hold you just the way i used to do
Oh, heaven only knows how much i miss you
I can't help it if i'm still in love with you.
