Midnight Sun

(Johnny Mercer,Sonny Burke and Lionel Hampton)

  		Intro: G7M E7/9- Am7 D7/9 G7M E7/9- Am7 D7/9 

         G9       G      Bm7    A#dim   G9      
Your lips were like a red and ruby chalice 
G6/9  Em5-/7    Gm7      C6    Gm6 C9 
Warmer than the summer night 
     F9        F       F7M     F7M/9  F7M 
The clouds were like an alabaster palace 
Am  E7/13-    Fm7     A#   Fm7 A# 
Rising to a snowy height 
      Eb9      Eb      Fdim  Adim  Eb 
Each star it's own aurora borealis 
Cm7          Ebm7    Cdim 
Suddenly you held me tight 
D7  Adim  D7  G7M  Bm7  C  D7  D7/13-  G7M 
And  I  could see       the Midnight Sun 
D7  G9       G      Bm7    A#dim       G9      
I can't explain the silver rain that found me 
G6/9   Em5-/7    Gm7       C6  Gm6 C9 
Or was that a moonlight veil 
    Gm    E7/13-  Fm7  A#      Fm7    A# 
The music of the universe around me 
Gm      E7/13-  Fm7    A#  Fm7 A# 
Or was that a nightingale 
    Eb9       Eb        Fdim  Adim    Eb 
And then your arms miraculously found me 
Cm7          Ebm7       Cdim 
Suddenly the sky turned pale 
Adim  D7  G7M  Bm7  C D7  D7/13-  G7M 
I  could see        the Midnight Sun. 
Bridge 
C    Em7  G9   G7/9    C 
Was there ever such a night 
C/B    Bm7     E7         Fdim     A   
It's a thrill I still don't quite believe 
          A6  D7M  D    A  
But after    you were gone 
Am          E7/13-    Am7     Am6     D7 
There was still the stardust on my sleeve 
        G9      G     Bm7   A#dim   G9      
The flame of it may dwindle to an ember 
G6/9     Em5-/7   Gm7      C6  Gm6 C9 
And the stars forget to shine 
    F9      F       F7M   F7M/9     F7M 
And we may see the meadow in  December 
Em   E7/13-     Fm7    A#   Fm7 A# 
Icy white and crystalline 
   D#9      D#   Fdim    Adim    D# 
But oh my darling always I'll remember 
Bm7                 D#m7     Cdim 
When your lips were close to mine 
D7     Am7     D7    D7/13-  G7M  Bm7 C D7/13-  G6 
And we saw the Midnight    Sun
