Recorded by The Hilltoppers, 1953 (#8
C Am7 Am7/G D D7 G7 Love walked right in and drove the shadows away; C Am7 Am7/G D7 Cdim G7 Love walked right in and brought my sunniest day. C C7 F Dm7 One magic moment and my heart seemed to know Em7 A7 F Dm7 G G7 That love said "Hello" though not a word was spoken. C Am7 Am7/G D D7 G7 One look and I forgot the gloom of the past; C Am7 Am7/G D7 Cdim G7 One look and I had found my future at last; C C7 F Dm7 Em7 A7 One look and I had found a world completely new Dm7 Cm7-5 Fdim G7 C When love walked in with you.
