Words & Music by Bud Green & Michael Edwards, 1937
Recorded by The Chimes, 1960; Featured in the movie "I'll Get By," 1950

  C          G   Am7
Once in a while,

          G          Em          B+        A7    Gdim
Will you try to give one little thought to me,

        Dm      Dm+7 Dm7 G7
Though somebody else may be

 Fdim         C     Gdim    Dm7     G7
Nearer your heart?


 C          G     Am7
Once in a while,

          G           Em         B+          A7    Gdim
Will you dream of the moments I shared with you,

  Dm       Dm+7 Dm7  G7
Moments before  we  two 

 Fdim    C    Fdim    C    C/B
Drifted apart.


(Bridge:)

     E    C#m7-5     F#m7   B7
In love's smoldering ember,

E   C#m7-5     F#m7   B7
One spark can remain;

    E   C#m7-5     F#m7   B7
If love still can remember,

       E       Edim  Dm7   Fdim
That spark may burn again.


C           G    Am7
I know that I'll

       G           Em          B+       A7    Gdim
Be contented with yesterday's mem - o - ry,

  Dm        Dm+7  Dm7 G7
Knowing you think of me

Fdim        C     C/B    A7    A-9   A7
Once in a while,

   Dm       Dm+7  Dm7 G7
Knowing you think of me

Dm7  Dm7-5 Fdim    C   C/B   Am7   Am7/G   Dm7   Dm7-5  Fdim   C
Once  in    a   while.



Special thanks to fellow music fan Norm B. for catching my previous 
incorrect key change into the bridge, and for suggesting most of the 
alternative version that this chart now uses.
