I bought my first Chet Atkins record in 1952 and have been a fan ever since

His Gallopin Guitar album has a tune called "Lover Come Back to Me".
It is a beautiful song and I would like to have the major chords. NO I won't play it like he did, but I might be able to play it the way I can.

Thanks, Jeep

Hmmm. I didn't realize that song was so old - published in 1928, with music by Sigmund Riomberg and lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II. The Great Song Thesaurus says that "the release of this song is based on Tchaikovsky's ""June Bacarolle." I'm not quite sure what that wording means.
Rabid Squirrel's Jazz Archive has the lyrics:

    Lover Come Back to Me
    (Sigmund Romberg / Oscar Hammerstein II )

    You went away
    I let you
    We broke the ties that bind
    I wanted to forget you
    And leave the past behind
    Still, the magic if the night I met you
    Seems to stay forever in my mind

    The sky was blue
    And high above
    The moon was new
    And so was love
    This eager heart of mine was singing
    Lover where can you be

    You came at last
    Love had its day
    That day is past
    You've gone away
    This aching heart of mine is singing
    Lover come back to me

    When I remember every little thing
    You used to do
    I'm so lonely
    Every road I walk along
    I walk along with you
    No wonder I am lonely

    The sky is blue
    The night is cold
    The moon is new
    But love is old
    And while I'm waiting here
    This heart of mine is singing
    Lover come back to me

    When I remember every little thing
    You used to do
    I grow lonely
    Every road I walk along
    I walk along with you
    No wonder I am lonely

    The sky is blue
    The night is cold
    The moon is new
    But love is old
    And while I'm waiting here
    This heart of mine is singing
    Lover come back to me

Joe, this is super. I had no idea the song had lyrics. As I said,I have loved this tune since the early '50's. I had everything that Chet Atkins had recorded and kept it updated until around 1960 on a trip to California, all my records were ruined. Someone had stored them on the shelf behind the back seat(The Hog Trough). The Mojave sun cooked them into useless plastic.

My thanks to everyone. Jim
