Lady In Red

Words & Music:

Chris DeBurgh


D   G7+   A4   D   G7+   A4

     D                         G7+                  A

I've never seen you looking so lovely as you did tonight.

     F#7            F#7/A#   Bm   A7   Am    G

I've never seen you shine so bright.   Mmmm.


I've never seen so many men ask you if you wanted to dance.

They're looking for a little romance, given half a chance.


And I've never seen that dress you're wearing

       A7                                      Bm                  A

Or the highlights in your hair that catch your eyes -- I have been blind.



    A7/G    D  D/F#   G  A            Bm  A/C#

The lady in red------ is dancing with me cheek to cheek.

               Em7  A                  D                       D7

There's nobody here; it's just you and me.  It's where I wanna be.

             G  F#7/A#    F#7          Bm   Bm/A   E7

But I hardly know--- this beauty by my side.

           Em7   A9           A      D

I'll never forget the way you look tonight.


I've never seen you looking so gorgeous as you did tonight.

I've never seen you shine so bright you were amazing.

I've never seen so many people want to be there by your side.

And when you turned to me and smiled it took my breath away.

And I have never had such a feeling such a feeling

Of complete and utter love, as I do tonight.



    A            Bm  Bm/A   E7           Em7        A9      A      D   G7+9

The way you look tonight--, I never will forget the way you look tonight.

    A4      D         A4      D         A4      D        A4      D

The lady in red.  The lady in red.  The lady in red.  My lady in red.
