"Take my smile to warm your morning...
Take my love to brighten your life...
Take my soul to fill your emptiness...
Oh, I'm but a prisoner of your love...
Hope your day is a fulfilling one
and you're thinking of me..."

October 6, 1998





Johnny Mathis
words by Johnny Burke

music by Erroll Garner


Look at me

              Bbm7              Eb7               AbM7

I'm as helpless as a kitten up a tree

          Abm7                                C#7

And I feel like I'm clinging to a cloud

  EbM7          Cm7

I can't understand

        Fm7    Bb7                    Gm7   C7  Fm7  Bb7

I get misty just holding your hand


Walk my way

             Bbm7            Eb7                  AbM7

And a thousand violins begin to play

          Abm7                                C#7

Or it might be the sound of your hello

        EbM7    Cm7

That music I hear

        Fm7        Bb7                   Eb          

I get misty the moment you're near
                                                 Bbm7              Eb7

You can say that you're leading me on


But it's just what I want you to do

                                    Am7                       D7     

Don't you notice how hopelessly I'm lost

                                         Gm7   C7  Fm7  Bb7

That's why I'm following you

On my own

                 Bbm7                                Eb7               AbM7

Would I wander through this wonderland alone

            Abm7                                       C#7

Never knowing my right foot from my left

      EbM7           Cm7

My hat from my glove

            Fm7         Bb7              Eb       

I'm too misty and too much in love


This song is lovingly dedicated to
"my best friend, my husband"

from Jane
