Song : G

G9 G G7aug G C9
And now the purple dusk of twilight time
B7 E Bdim7 E E7
Steals across the meadows of my heart.
Am Cm G Gmaj7 Em
High up in the sky the little stars climb,
F# F#7 D Fdim7 D7
Always reminding me that we're apart.

G9 G G7aug G C9
You wandered down the lane and far away.
B7 E Bdim7 E E7
Leaving me a song that will not die.
Am Cm G Gmaj7 Em
Love is now the stardust of yes-ter-day,
D7 Gdim7 Am7 Cdim7 G Cm G
The music of the years gone by.

G7aug G G9 Cm7 C Am C F
Sometimes I wonder why I spend the lonely night
F7 G Gmaj7 Em Dm6 E7
Dreaming of a song. The mel-o-dy haunts my reverie,
Am7 E7 Fdim7 Am7 Fdim7 Am
And I am once again with you.

D Fdim7 D7 D G6 Daug G6
When our love was new, and each kiss an in-spi-ra-tion,
A9 G A7 G
But that was long ago; now my consolation
D7 Am7 C D7 D
Is in the stardust of a song.

Cm7 C Am C F7
Beside a garden wall when stars are bright,
Fm9 G Gmaj7 Em Dm6 E7
You are in my arms; the nightingale tells his fairy tale
Am7 E7 Fdim7 Am7 Fdim7 Am
Of par-a-dise where ro-ses grew.

D A7 D7 G Gmaj7 Em B F#7 B7
Though I dream in vain, in my heart it will re-main:
C Cmaj7 E7 Am7
My stardust mel-o-dy
D7 Cdim7 G Am7 Cm G6
the memory of love's re - frain.
