A Handful of Stars  Glen Miller

[A]I recall the s[F#7]tory, that n[Bm7-5]ight of [Dm6]love and [Cdim]glory,

A [A]night that left my h[A7]eart romantic s[D6]cars;[Dm6]

We [A]stood [A9]so n[A]ear to H[F#7]eaven tha[Bm7-5]t I reached clear to [Dm6]Heaven

And g[E7]athered you a [E7+5]handful of s[A6]tars.


Sw[A]eet remembered [F#7]hour when [Bm7-5]love be[Dm6]gan to [Cdim]flower

With m[A]oonlight through the t[A7]rees like silver b[D6]ars; [Dm6]

And a[A]s the [A9]moon g[A]rew [F#7]older, I [Bm7-5]reached across your s[Dm6]houlder

And [D9]gathered you a [E7+5]handful of st[A6]ars.



Bridge:

[A]I p[A9]laced [A]my f[C#m]inger[C#m7]tips u[C#m]pon your [C#m7]lips and [G#]stars fell [G#7]in your [G#]eyes;

[C#m]Moonglow made a [C#m7]halo of your [C#7]hair,

S[E]uddenly you [Fdim]looked at me and d[F#m]reams began to [B7]rise --

[E]Oh, what t[E9]hings [E]un - [E9]spo - [E]ken [E7]trem - bled[E7/6] in the [E7]air.


Our hea[A]rts were madly [F#7]beating, and[Bm7-5] then our l[Dm6]ips were [Cdim]meeting,

And V[A]enus seemed to m[A7]elt right into [D6]Mars.[Dm6]

And [A]while [A9]we sto[A]od car[F#7]essing, blue [Bm7-5]Heaven sent a b[Dm6]lessing --

A s[D9]hower of [E7+5]handful of s[A6]tars.
