A Handful of Stars

Glen Miller

 AF#7Bm7-5Dm6Cdim
 I recall the story, that night of love and glory,

 AA7D6Dm6
night that left my heart romantic scars; 

 AA9AF#7Bm7-5Dm6
We stood so near to Heaven that I reached clear to Heaven

 E7E7+5A6
And gathered you a handful of stars.

 AF#7Bm7-5Dm6Cdim
Sweet remembered hour when love began to flower

 AA7D6Dm6
With moonlight through the trees like silver bars;  

 AA9AF#7Bm7-5Dm6
And as the moon grew older, I reached across your shoulder

 D9E7+5A6
And gathered you a handful of stars.

Bridge:

 AA9AC#mC#m7C#mC#m7G#G#7G#
 I placed my fingertips upon your lips and stars fell in your eyes;

 C#mC#m7C#7
 Moonglow made a halo of your hair,

 EFdimF#mB7
Suddenly you looked at me and dreams began to rise --

 EE9EE9EE7E7/6E7
 Oh, what things un - spo - ken trem - bled in the air.

 AF#7Bm7-5Dm6Cdim
Our hearts were madly beating, and then our lips were meeting,

 AA7D6Dm6
And Venus seemed to melt right into Mars. 

 AA9AF#7Bm7-5Dm6
And while we stood caressing, blue Heaven sent a blessing --

 D9E7+5A6
A shower of handful of stars.
