Mitchell Parish - Hoagy Carmichael - transp. to CG A

(D)Now the purple dusk of (G7)twilight time
(F#7)Steals across the meadows of my (B7)heart
(Em)High up in the (Em7)sky the (D)little stars (Bm7*)climb
Always re(C#7)minding me that (Em)we’re a(A7)part
You (D)wandered down the lane and (G7)far away
(F#7)Leaving me a song that will not (B7)die
(Em)Love is now the (Em7)stardust (D)of yesterday
The (Em7)music (A7)of the (Em7)years (A7)gone (D)by

Sometimes I (G)wonder why I spend
The lonely (Gm)nights, dreaming of a song
The (D)melody (F#m7)haunts my reve(B7)rie
And (Em)I am once a(Em7)gain with (G6)you (Gj7)

When our (A7)love was new
And each kiss an inspi(D)ration
But (E7)that was long ago, now my consolation
Is (A7)in the (Em7)stardust of a (A)song
Be(G)side a garden wall
When stars are (Gm)bright, you are in my arms
The (D)nightingale (F#m7)tells his fairy(B7)tale
Of (Em)paradise where (Em7)roses (G)grew

Tho’ I (Gm6)dream in vain
In my (D)heart it (Bm*)willl re(B7)main
My (G6)stardust melo(G)dy
The (Em7)memo(A7)ry of (Em7)love’s (A7)re(D)frain
