GHOST OF YESTERDAY Irene Wilson (nee Kitchings) (m) Artur Herzog (l) 1940 as rec by Billie Holiday & her Orch Feb 29th 1940 New York Ghost of yesterday, Stalking round my room, All night long you stayed, Walk around in profound gloom. When the darkness falls, When I've gone to bed, Weakly come your calls, Mournfully, scornfully dead. Valley of love I've strangled, Pulsin heart I thought was gone; Give no peace, will not cease, Prowling 'round till dawn. Ghost of yesterday, Every night you're here, Whispering away, "Might have been, Might have been, Oh my dear!". Foolish heart must pay Ghost of yesterday! Ghost of yesterday, Every night you're here, Whispering away, "Might have been, Might have been, Oh my dear!". Foolish heart must pay Ghost of yesterday, Ghost of yesterday!
