Yours till  the stars  have   no    glo - ry,

Yours till the birds fail to sing,

Yours till the end of life's sto - ry --

This pledge to you, dear, I bring.

Yours  in  the gray of    De -  cem - ber,

Here or on far dis - tant shores;

I've nev - er loved an - y - one the way I love you --

How could I, when I was born to be just yours?

Though the song was already ten years old by then, 1941 saw this song chart four times. Besides Dorsey's version, Xavier Cugat and Vaughn Monroe both reached #16, and Benny Goodman hit #17 with his arrangement.
