Cole Porter – You’d Be So Nice to Come Home To (Chords)

Cole Porter – You’d Be So Nice to Come Home To

I had a clutch of requests for this Cole Porter song after posting Victor and Penny’s version the other week. And I’m always eager to write up a song that includes an aug7 chord.

Being a Cole Porter classic, You’d Be So Nice has been covered by a horde of people including Sarah Vaughan, Dinah Shore, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and Nina Simone. But I’ve stuck to Victor and Penny’s ukulele version for the chord chart.

Suggested Strumming

Here’s your main strum:

d – d – d u d u

Here it is slow then up to speed:

Main Strum

That will do you for most of the song. But there are a few quick chord changes on E7-Emaj7 and
You can play those:

d u d u

Which sounds like:

Short strum

The only shorter chord change is right at the end. Do one down strum per chord there.

    That’s lovely. I hope I can get some of Penny’s smile into my rendition of your commendably clear tab.
