Thread Name: Any songs for a 50th Wedding Anniversary
Subject: Lyr/Tune Add: THE ANNIVERSARY SONG (Jolson/Chaplin
Barry, here is the tune for the Anniversary Song, which I have pitched in Dm.

THE ANNIVERSARY SONG
Words by Al Jolson and Saul Chaplin, ©1946.
Music adapted by Chaplin from "Waves of the Danube" by Ion Ivanovici, ©1880.
As recorded by Al Jolson, 1946; featured in "The Jolson Story."

1. Oh how we danced on the night we were wed!
We vowed our true love though a word wasn't said.
The world was in bloom; there were stars in the skies,
Except for the few that were there in your eyes.

CHORUS: Dear, as I held you close in my arms,
Angels were singing a hymn to your charms,
Two hearts gently beating, murmuring low:
"Darling I love you so!"

2 The night seemed to fade into blossoming dawn.
The sun shone anew but the dance lingered on.
Could we but recall that sweet moment sublime,
We'd find that our love is unaltered by time.

Darling, I love you so!


Regards, John.
