AM7             F#m  F#7
East of the sun and west of the moon,

We'll build a dream house of love, dear.

Bm7        Bm7-5        E7  G#m        C#m7-5   F#m
Near to the sun in the day, near to the moon at night,

We'll live in a lovely way, dear, 

 Bm       Bm7/E   Bm7-5       E7
Living on love and pale moonlight.

Just you and I, for - ev - er and a day; 

DM7           D6         Dm7          
Love will not die, we'll keep it that way,

G#m          C#7
Up among the stars we'll find 

  F#m                  B7
A harmony of life to a lovely tune,

Dm7                 Dm7         AM7    F7
East of the sun and west of the moon, dear, 

Bm7         Bm7      E7 Bm7-5     AM7
East of the sun and west  of  the moon.
