Verse:
There's a night - in - gale call - in', Out where moon - beams are fall - in',
He's mak - in' love to a red, red rose.
I wan - der down the lane where we start - ed, Lov - ers lane where we part - ed,
I'm so un - hap - py, but no one knows.
 
Chorus:
Ev - 'ry - bod - y hand in hand, Swing - in down the lane,
Ev - 'ry - bod - y feel - in' grand, Swing - in down the lane,
That's the time I miss the bliss, That we might have known,
Nights like this, When I'm all a - lone.
When the moon is on the rise, hon - ey I'm so blue,
Watch - in' lov - ers mak - in' eyes, Like we used to do,
When the moon is on the wane, Still I'm wait - in' all in vain,
Should be swing - in' down the lane with you.
