D D7 G G/F# G/E Evening shadows make me blue G/B A7 D D6 When each weary day is through; D Cdim Em7 A7 G/B A7 A7+5 D Cdim A7 How I long to be with you, my hap - pi - ness. A7+5 G G/F# G/E Every day I rem - I - nisce, G/B A7 D D6 Dreaming of your tender kiss, D Cdim Em7 A7 G/B A7 A7+5 D G D DM7 D7 Always thinking how I miss my hap - pi - ness. Bridge: G G/F# Em7 A million years, it seems, D Fdim D Have gone by since we shared our dreams; E E7 But I'll hold you again, G G/F# G/B A7 There'll be no blue mem - o - ries then. A7-5 G G/ G/E Whether skies are gray or blue, G/B A7 D D6 Any place on earth will do, D Cdim Em7 A7 G/B A7 A7+5 D G Gdim D Just as long as I'm with you, my hap - pi - ness.
It took me years to find out that a huge number of Connie Francis' hits from this era were re-makes of songs first released a generation or more earlier. I'm told this was because she was heavily influenced by her father to record songs that had "made it" before.
