As recorded by SAM BROWNE with piano accompaniement by PEGGY COCHRANE: It came from nowhere the night that we met Was like a melodious plea Sweet moon song That wasn’t meant for me Why is it always reminding me of A love dream that never could be Sweet moon song That wasn’t meant for me It came gliding into my heart, riding On a moon beam from above Sorrow ended and the whole world blended In a rhapsody of love, then I heard her singing to somebody else What I thought was my melody Sweet moon song That wasn’t meant for me (Contributed by Bill Huntley - March 2007) ******************** As recorded by ANNETTE HANSHAW, 25th January 1933, New York: Once I tried to capture the rapture of a night Silly dreams I knew would disappear But it seems they lasted, a souvenir One refrain eternally will haunt me, taunt me It came from nowhere, the night that we met Was like a melodious plea Sweet Moon song That wasn’t meant for me Why is it always reminding me of A love dream that never could be Sweet Moon song That wasn’t meant for me It came gliding into my heart Riding on a moonbeam from above Sorrow ended and the whole world blended In a rhapsody of love, then I heard him singing to somebody else What I thought was my melody Sweet Moon song That wasn’t meant for me Mmmmm, it rode on a moonbeam from above It was so beautiful, the night that we met Just a rhapsody of love, then I heard him singing to somebody else What I thought was my melody Sweet Moon song That wasn’t meant for me (Transcribed by Peter Akers - September 2011) (Updated by Mel Priddle - January 2016)
