HAND IN HAND
from 1934 London musical "The Three Sisters"
(Jerome Kern (m) Oscar Hammerstein II (l) 1934)
as recorded by
Lew Stone & His Band
(vocal - Al Bowlly)
May 3rd 1934 London
Hand in hand we'll walk together
When dawn is timidly fading.
Hand in hand we'll talk together
In twilight's delicate shading.
Other men alone adventure
And secret stars above,
I will have my own adventure
If I have you to love!
We'll grow old and walk together
And smiles will sweeten our tears,
While we gently talk together
Our bygone beautiful years.
I have but one heart to give,
But that heart is true!
I who have one life to give,
Give that life to you!
