D         G   A7/6  D  Em7  A7  D       G    D   Fdim
No other love have  I,          only my love for you,

Em       Cdim(IV) G  E    A7        Em7 - A7 - DM7   Em7 - A7
Only the dreams  we knew, no other love.

D             G   A7/6  D   Em7  A7   D            G   D   Fdim
Watching the night go  by,          wishing that you could  be

Em          Cdim(IV) G  E   A7       Em7  A7  DM7
Watching the night with me, into the night I  cry.


                  C      G7
Hurry home, come home to me,

 A      E7    F#        B
Set me free, free from doubt

     E         A
And free from longing.

D         G    A7/6  D   Em7  A7   D             G     D   Fdim
Into your arms I'll fly,          locked in your arms I'll stay

Em          Cdim(IV) G   E
Waiting for   you    to say

A7       Em7  A7   D  DM7   G        Em7   A7   D
No other love have I,       no other love.

This one's got kind of an unusual history, which was forwarded by Ron Hontz:

Perhaps the most popular piece from Victory at Sea is "Beneath the Southern Cross," (track 7), a strangely sensuous and romantic tango-like composition. It was such a lovely and evocative melody that Rodgers later "borrowed" it and transformed it into a hit song ("No Other Love"), which appeared in the 1953 Broadway musical “Me and Juliet” and would be recorded by Perry Como.
