My Blue Heaven   Smashing Pumpkins



My Blue Heaven
Words and Music by George Whiting and Walter Donaldson, Capo up 1 1/2 steps (3 frets)

This arrangement is for a lead guitar and a bass. The top fig. is the guitar
melody, the bottom is the bass. This song isn't very structured as far as defining
verses and choruses go, so I've just marked each phrase with the time it starts
and ends at.

Fig1

Fig2
Day is ending
Birds are wending
Back to their shelter of
Each little nest they love

Fig3
Nightshade's falling
Lovebirds calling
What makes the world go round
Nothing but love

Fig4
When Whippoorwills call
And evening is night
I hurry to my blue heaven
Fig4
I turn to the right
A little white light
Will lead you to my blue heaven

Fig5
You'll see a smiling face
A fireplace, a cozy room
A little nest
That's nestled where the roses bloom

Fig6
Just Molly and me
And baby makes three
We're happy in my blue heaven

Fig7
Fig8

Fig9
You'll see a smiling face
A fireplace, a cozy room
A little nest
That's nestled where the roses bloom

Fig10
Just Molly and me
And baby makes three
We're happy in my blue heaven

Fig11
