More songs by Lerner and Loewe

This file is part of a collection that (moreso than the rest of the site) are not meant to be detailed or accurate transcriptions of the original recordings. They're just some simple chord charts that I made for my own use, some of them my own arrangements.

From the 1956 Broadway musical My Fair Lady
Lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner and music by Frederick Loewe

I have often walked down the street before
        C              /Eb      /D        G
But the pavement always stayed beneath my feet before
       Dm                C
All at once am I several stories high
        Dm         G                C
Knowing I'm On The Street Where You Live

Are there lilac trees in the heart of town?
Can you hear a lark in any other part of town?
Does enchantment pour out of every door?
No, it's just on the street where you live

         E                F
And oh, the towering feeling
        Fm                   C
Just to know somehow you are near
    G#           B
The overpowering feeling
         E              E7       G
That any second you may suddenly appear

People stop and stare, they don't bother me
For there's nowhere else on earth that I would rather be
Let the time go by, I won't care if I
Can be here on the street where you live

Let me be on the street where you live
