My Blue Heaven [Whiting/Donaldson]

[Covers]

"I've wanted to cover this song for five years, but found it impossible to learn, as I can't seem to learn anyone else's song. Written in 1927, this song is a well-known standard. I thought about doing this more futuristically, but in the end opted to let it be beautiful in its simplicity." -BC (Guitar World 1/97)

 

Lyrics

day is ending
birds are wending
back to their shelter of
each little nest they love

nightshade's falling
lovebirds calling
what makes the world go round
nothing but love

when whippoorwills call
and evening is night
i hurry to my blue heaven
i turn to the right
a little white light
will lead you to my blue heaven

you'll see a smiling face
a fireplace, a cozy room
a little nest
that's nestled where the roses bloom

just molly and me
and baby makes three
we're happy in my blue heaven

you'll see a smiling face
a fireplace, a cozy room
a little nest
that's nestled where the roses bloom

just molly and me
and baby makes three
we're happy in my blue heaven
we're happy in my blue heaven

Notes

George Whiting / Walter Donaldson cover.

Other than a ~1% speed difference, the "BT 2012 mix" on the 2012 MCIS deluxe re-issue is nearly indistinguishable from the original single release.
