Ev’ry Time We Say Goodbye” is a song with lyrics and music by Cole Porter and published by Chappell & Company. It was introduced in 1944 in Billy Rose‘s musical revue Seven Lively Arts. In the phrase “change from major to minor”, Porter begins with an A♭ major chord and ends with an A♭ minor one, matching the words and music.[1] The song has since become a jazz standard after gaining popularity in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Many artists have replaced the apostrophe in “ev’ry” with an “e”.
