 D9   A7  D             D7     D6    D9   G9    G   G/F#  E7
When the swallows come back to Cap - is - tra - no,

  A    Em7  D               B7              E7  Edim  A7
That's the day you promised to come back to me;

D9   A7  D               D7        D6    D9   G9    G   Gm
When you whispered, "Farewell" in Cap - is - tra - no,

 A   Em7  D  B7              E7   D9  E7  A7  D  Gm  D
Twas the day    the swallows flew out to the sea.


(Bridge:)

D7       G       Em7   A7   D
All the mission bells will ring

     A7    Edim  Gdim  D    C#7
The chapel choir will sing

    F#7              Bm    Bm7/E
The happiness you'll bring

      E7        Cdim  E7  A7
Will live in my mem - o - ry


D9   A7  D             D7      D6    D9   G9    G   Gm
When the swallows come back to Cap - is - tra - no,

 A     Em7  D  B7              E7    A7     Gdim    D
That's the day    I pray that you'll   come back to me.



*The Ink Spots' version was actually beaten on the charts in 1940 by 
Glenn Miller's recording, which reached number 2 with Ray Eberle's 
vocal, but of the two, I prefer this one. Twenty-seven years later, Pat 
Boone would take it to the charts again (barely!) when his version went 
to #80.
