*Adapted slightly from a chart posted by Kitch in the alt.guitar.tab newsgroup. Glenn Miller's classic version was recorded as an instrumental, and he is credited here because his is the benchmark, at least in my view, so the lyrics which Miller didn't use are synthesized here from several other recorded versions.
