Words & Music by Eddie DeLange & Jimmy Van Heusen
Recorded by Artie Shaw, 1938, Helen Forrest Vocal

  E            E+7         E7          E6
I dim all the lights and I sink in my chair.

     A            A+5        A7/6             A7
The smoke from my cigrette climbs through the air.

     Dalt        D6          Dm+7        Dm6
The walls of my room fade a - way in the blue,

        Bm7       Bm7-5    E7
And I'm deep in a dream of you.

     E             E+7         E7         E6
The smoke makes a stairway for you to descend;

    A          A+5             A7/6        A7
You come to my arms, may this bliss never end,

   Dalt      D6         Dm+7        Dm6
For we love anew just as we used to do

          D9        E7       A
When I'm deep in a dream of you.


               C      Am     Dm7          G7
Then from the ceiling, sweet music comes stealing;

    C             Gdim         Dm7    G7
We glide through a lover's refrain; 

             C      Am     Dm7          G7
You're so appealing    that I'm soon revealing 

    C          Gdim     Dm7  G7
My love for you over again.

    E        E+7         E7             E6
My cigarette burns me, I wake with  a start;

   A           A+5             A7/6          A7
My hand isn't hurt, but there's pain in my heart.

 Dalt      D6         Dm+7        Dm6
Awake or asleep, ev'ry mem'ry I'll keep

D9        E7       A
Deep in a dream of you.
