Ultimative schmaltz, made famous by The Platters in 1958.
By the way the song title is part of the translation of a Russian proverb, “When your heart’s on fire, smoke gets in your eyes”.
Light triplet feel and really slow. Some tricky bits:
- There is no way to let ring the B° (or Bdim7) chord, just slightly strum and release.
- The Dbmaj7 in the beginning of part [ B ] is easier to play with the lower strings barred using the second finger.
Just make sure to not mute the e-string.
