Hoagy Carmichael

I Get Along Without You Very Well

LYRIC

I get along without you very well
Of course I do
Except when soft rains fall
And drip from leaves, then I recall
The thrill of being sheltered in your arms
Of course I do
But I get along without you very well

I've forgotten you just like I should
Of course I have
Except to hear your name
Or someone's laugh that is the same
But I've forgotten you just like I should
What a guy
What a fool am I
To think my breaking heart could kid the moon
What's in store?
Should I phone once more?
No, it's best that I stick to my tune

I get along without you very well
Of course I do
Except perhaps in spring
But I should never think of spring
For that would surely break my heart in two

About "I Get Along Without You Very Well"

Copyrighted in 1938, it was based on a poem found within the pages of LIFE magazine and credited to someone known only as “J.B.” Passed along by an unknown friend to Hoagy, he painstakingly reworked it into what would become one of his most personal and emotional songs.
