(Mitchell Parish and Hoagy Carmichael)

Intro: Verse 

G9      G      G7M  G         C9 
And now the purple dusk of twilight time 
 B7                              E     E7/9-     E7   
Steals across the meadows of my heart 
 Am            Cm       G      G/F#    Em 
High up in the sky the little stars climb 
 F#       F#7             D    Fdim  D7  
Always reminding me that we're  apart 
	G9      G        G7M     G   C9 
You wandered down the lane and far away 
 B7                              E   E7/9- E7  
Leaving me a song that will not die 
 Am              Cm          G  G/F# Em 
Love is now the stardust of yesterday 
    D7    Gdim      Am7  Cdim  G  Cm  G 
The music  of  the years gone  by 

G7M G   G9 C7M    C     Am       C         F  
Sometimes I wonder why I spend the lonely night 
 F7		           G      G/F#   Em  Bm5-/7 E7 
Dreaming of a song.   The meloy haunts my reverie             
   Am7    E7  Fdim        Am7 Fdim Am 
And I am once again with yo 
         D  Fdim  D7           D7M      G6     D7M   G6   
When our love was new, and each kiss an inspiration 
     A9           G    A7           G 
But that was long ago; now my consolation  
D7        Am7      C    D7     D7M 
Is in the stardust of a song 
   C7M    C     Am        C            F7 
Beside a garden wall when stars are bright 
Fm7/9		     G   G/F#    Em  Bm5-/7            E7 
You are in my arms; the nightingale tells his fairy tale 
   Am7    E7       Fdim     Am7  Fdim  Am 
Of paradise where roses grew 
		 D   A7  D7       G    G/F# Em   B7M  F#7  B7 
Though I dream in vain, in my heart  it  will remain: 
   C		 C/B  E7 Am7	 
My stardust melody 
        D7     Cdim  Cdim  G    Am7 Cm G6 
The memory of love's   refrain
