A     A9   E7/6  E7sus4  D9  Bm7-5  A   
Ev' - ry - bod -  y's   hand  in   hand 

C#m7-5                F#7 Gdim F#7
Swing - in' down the lane;

Gdim                 B7    Fdim  E7   
Ev' - ry - bod - y's feel - in' grand 

Cdim                  A6  E7/9  A6
Swing - in' down the lane.

C#7               F#7  Edim F#7
That's the time I miss the bliss 

C#m7-5              B7     Cdim   B7
That we might have known,

E7/6   Cdim  E7  D9      Bm7-5  E7
Nights like this when I'm all alone.

A    A9  E7/6 E7sus4  D9  Bm7-5  A   C#m7-5           F#7  Gdim  F#7
When the moon   is    on   the  rise,  ba - by I'm so blue

 B7         Cdim      E7  Bm7-5  E7  Cdim            A6
Watch - in' lov - ers ma - kin' eyes like we used to do

Gdim             F#7 C#m7-5 F#7
When the moon is on   the   wane, 

Dm6               A  C#m7 F#7
Still I'm waitin' all in vain --

Cdim                E7 Bm7-5 E7  E7/6  A
Should be swingin' down the lane with you.
