12-beat intro. including 2-note lead-in.  Play 3-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
This song is in 3/4 time.
The sun is sink -ing low in the sky a -bove A -sho -kan.
The pines and the wil -lows know soon we will part.
There's a whis -per in the wind of prom -is -es un spok -en,
And love that will al -ways re -main in my heart.
My thoughts will re -turn to the sound of your laugh -ter,
The mag -ic of mov -ing as one, And a time we'll re -mem -ber long ev -er af -ter
The moon -light and mus -ic and danc -ing are done.
