Mudlark wanted the chords to this song (which is a great one for Veterans' Day), so here is how I play it.   I'm sure my chords are simpler than the ones the big bands used, but these work for me.

Notes on my notation:
Em7 = 022030 (or 022033)
A9 = 043000
The G-->F#-->F-->E7 sequence is a moveable barre chord sequence
a, b, c, d# (which is probably e flat, but I didn't have enough space), and c are notes, not chords.  I just do a little melody run in those last two lines, around the Fm and G chords.

Also, on my screen, I have printed a down arrow in lines 1, 9, and 12, for a walkdown, but I'm not sure it will come out that way in the thread.

I'll Be Seeing You
 Irving Kahal (?) & Sammy Kahn (?)   © ca. 1929

 G  [    Em7
I'll be seeing you
     C                   D7
In all the old familiar places
   C                          D7
That this heart of mine embraces
  G             Em7
All day through,
 C           Em
In that small cafe,
         C         Em
The park across the way,
          D             D7
The children's carousel,
          G                           A9
The chestnut tree, the wishing well.
 G  [    Em7
I'll be seeing you
     C                   D
In every lovely summer's day,
     C                            D
In everything that's light and gay.
      G           [          B7
I'll always think of you that way.
        C                       B7
I'll find you in the morning sun
           G            F#     F   E7
And when the night is new,
  a   bFm
I'll be looking at the moon,
   c    d   d#d c G
But I'll be seeing you.

Thanks so much, Genie...I'm going to start fiddling about with it today...and with your helpful non-big band chords, can hopefully have it worked out and down pat by the time I have to present it Dec. 13.

Glad to help.

BTW, I'm trying to check the accuracy of my authorship attributions and the spelling. If anyone else can verify or correct, please do.

These are the words to the verse (introduction)

Cathedral bells were tolling
and our hearts sang (rang) on,
Was it the spell of Paris,
or the April dawn?
Who knows if we shall meet again
but when the morning chimes ring
sweet again......

As sung by Rosemart Clooney
Irving Kahal / Sammy Fain

Try "the children's carousel, the chestnut tree, the wishing well" with a D or D7 augmented instead of the "D7" and the "A9". (The original sheet music, in Eb, has a "Bb7 augmented" for the "carousel" and a "Bb9augmented" for "the wishing well".).



yours, Peter T.

That's the gig for me! I'll take Sweden and simpler chords on this one.

Story: My Mother was a singer in the USO during WW2 and that is when she met my father who also was a thespian and educator!

Together, this was their song until his death in '03. At the funeral home, my Mother touched his hand and said, " I love you, Rob. I'll be looking at the moon and seeing you." In the movie, " The Notebook", I see a familiar reenactment of their love that fit that bill.
This song is reminiscent of all of such loves!

Thank you!
