Note:  Each row of chords above aligns with each row of words below.
Dew drops glis -ten -ing, no -one lis -ten -ing,  By the Gan -ges some one whis -per -ing
To a Hin -doo maid:
"Though to -mor -row, dear, you will yearn,  Don't you sor -row, dear,  I'll re -turn
To my Hin -doo maid."
Mel -o -dy bells of love ring out 'Neath the mel -low moon,
Mel -o -dy bells that try to tell you I'm re -turn -ing soon.  
In the mel -low,
Moon -light on the Gan -ges,
My lit -tle Hin -doo,
When I whis -per'd Love's sweet mel -o -dy,
All our dreams and our schemes came true.
Some -day on the Gan -ges,
I'll meet you once more,
And I'll kiss you and ca -ress you,
Where the wa -ters kiss the si -lent shore.
