D       Bb9  Em7          A7+5    D       Bb9  Em7
Summer,           you old Indian Summer,

           A7              Dmaj7 Fdim        Em7      Edim
You're the tear that comes after Junetime's laughter.

    Em7          A7         A7/6        Bm  Bm7
You see so many dreams that don't come true,

G         Bm7-5           E7             A7   Bm7-5   A7
Dreams we fashioned when Summertime was new.


        A7+5          D    Bb9 Em7      A7+5          D    Bb9 Em7
You are here to watch over        some heart that is broken

     A7        D6       Fdim    Em7     Edim  G
By a word that somebody left unspoken.

            A7         D  D6  D   B7   Em7      A7
You're the ghost of a romance in June going a - stray,

F#m7        B7    Em7         A7+5
Fading too soon, that's why I say,

 D    B7  Em7       A7+5   Fdim  D
"Farewell    to you Indian Sum - mer."

[instrumental: sax solo]

You are here to watch over
A heart that is broken by a word that somebody left unspoken
You're the ghost of a romance in June going astray
Fading too soon, that's why I say
"Farewell to you, Indian Summer"

You old Indian Summer



* Herbert wrong the music to this song in 1919 for piano, titling it "An 
American Idyll." Dubin added the lyric 20 years later, and Tommy Dorsey's 
orchestra recorded it the following year. Recording credit went to the 
Tommy Dorsey orchestra on Hit Parade lists; had it been recorded even a 
few years later, it would have carried Sinatra's name as the recording 
artist.
