Good night, my love, the tired old moon is descending;  

      Am7      D9       Am7        Cdim        G6
Good night, my love, my moment with you now is ending.

GM7       Bm7   Bbm7  Am7  C      CM7  Cm      Cm7
It was so heav - en - ly, holding you close to me; 

E   E+7    E7          A7       Gdim          D7
It will be heavenly to hold you again in a dream.

D9   G6    G6/9      G6          Bm7-5     D7
The stars above have promised to meet us tomorrow; 

     Am7       D9        Am7      Cdim          Gdim
Till then, my love, how dreary the new day will seem.

C          Cm             G     G/F#     Bm7
So for the present, dear, we'll have to part; 

  D9   G6       G6/9       Bm7-5      E7
Sleep tight, my love, good night, my love, 

   C     Am7          D9    D7    G
Remember that you're mine, sweetheart.
