"Stardust"
Music by Hoagy Charmichael, 1927.
(Official site: http://www.hoagy.com)
Lyrics by Mitchell Parrish, 1929.


             Am
Sometimes, I wonder why
                    B7 
I spend such lonely nights

dreaming of a song
    G                E7
the melody haunts my reverie
    Am   E7              Am
and I am once again with you
         D7
when our love was new
         A7            D7
and each kiss an inspiration
                 Am
Ah, but that was long ago
           
and now my consolation
D7        A7            D7 
is in the stardust of a song
  Am
Beside a garden wall,
                B7
when stars were bright

and you are in my arms.
    G
The Nightengale told
    E7           Am  E7
his fairytale of paradise,
            Am
where roses grew
             Cm
and though I dream in vain,
      G              E7
in my heart, it will remain.
   Am7              D7
My stardust Melody,
 
the memory of
         G      Cm    G
Love's Refrain.

The first two verses are not there.

It's often played this way, without the first two verses, most notably in Charmichael's great vocal version from 1942.

Chords are good here. I think the A7-D7 over "and each kiss an inspiration" sounds funny though. I stuck in a G-Cm-G over "inspiration" and that sounds good with the melody, although I'm not sure that's what's played.

Sharpen this half a step to match the recording.

this is a classic....and this rendition is missing some obvious chord changes... no reason to NOT know these. The melody spells out several of the chords in fact
