(Dave Pollack (m) Bob Rothberg (l) 1934)
as recorded by
Benny Goodman & his Orchestra
(vocal - Helen Ward)
February 19th 1935 New York
Love was blown away by the night wind,
And the dream we shared fell apart.
Now I'm all alone in a night wind,
Wind that brought the blues to my heart.
Yesterday my arms were around you,
And your lips revealed you were mine.
Then the angry wind came and found you,
Came to end a moment divine.
Oh that night wind seems to taunt me,
Seems to taunt me
Now that you don't want me!
Why is Lovers Lane filled with shadows?
Stars no longer shine up above!
I'll be waitin' there in the shadows,
Till the night wind brings back our love!
