  G   G9  C    C/B   Em7-5 A7      Dm7     F      G
When the deep purple falls    over sleepy garden walls,

 G+     Cmaj7   C      Gm      Em7         A7   A-9   A
And the stars begin to flicker     in the sky,

            Dm  Dm7   F    Fm
Through the mist of a memory,  

Em     Em7    Edim    A7        
   You wander back to me

  Dm7   Fdim     G     G+  | C   -  A7  |  Dm7  -  G  |
Breath - ing my name with a sigh.


G  G9   C    C/B     Em7-5 A7      Dm7      F         G
In the still of  the night,   once again I hold you tight;

  G+           Cmaj7      C        Em         Em7       A7   A-9   A
Though you're gone, your love lives on when moonlight beams;

       Dm   Dm7    F         Fm
And as long as my heart will beat, 

Em      Em7        Edim   A7
  Lov - er, we'll  always meet

 Dm7 Fdim   G    G+   | C    A7  |   Dm7  -   Fdim(III)   G    |
Here in my deep purple dreams.


(instrumental interlude - Verse 1)


G  G9   C    C/B     Em7-5  A7      Dm7     F         G
In the still of  the night,   once again I hold you tight;

  G+          Cmaj7       C         Em       Em7       A7    A-9   A
Though you're gone, your love lives on when moonlight beams;

        Dm  Dm7    F          Fm
And as long as my heart will beat, 

Em   Em7        Edim    A7
  Lover, we'll  always meet

 Dm7 Fdim      G    G+     E7     A7
Here  in  my deep purple dreams,


Dm7 Fdim    G    G+  G6   C    Fdim(III)  Fdim(VI)   Fdim    C
Here in my deep pur-ple dreams. 



Also recorded by Larry Clinton & His Orchestra, 1939 (#1), Billy Ward & 
His Dominoes, 1957 (#20), and by Donny and Marie Osmond, 1976 (#14) -- 
which made the Osmonds the second brother-sister act to record it, because 
Nino Tempo and April Stevens are also brother-and-sister.

And, for the ultimate bit of truly worthless trivia, according to Eddie 
Hubbard on his nationally-syndicated radio show, this song (though not the 
1969 version, obviously) was Babe Ruth's favorite song.
