Words & Music by Betty Peterson & Borney Bergantine, 1933
Recorded by Connie Francis, 1958 (#2)

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.


    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.
