Tubas In The Moonlight

 
           




[Intro]:  F  C+  F  C+  
          F  Fm  C+



F
  Through the twilight I can hear the humming 

       C#7        F
  Of a melancholy coon

  (Hmmmm-um)

F
  Ah, the memories that still linger

    C#7              F
  I thank you Mister Moon

  G                       C7
  And although I've never smiled

  G
  Winter, Summer

          C7
  Autumn, too

  F                    D
  Now, here's one tune to remind me

  G             C7    *(C+)
  Why I feel so blue



  F
  Tubas in the moonlight

  Fm
  Playing for me all night

  F                      D7
  Tell me what I want to hear

  G7
  Am I only dreaming?

  C7
  Am I only scheming?

  F      F#dim
  Stars above me

  Gm      C7
  Shining brightly

  F         F7 
  Why can't she be

  Bb             Bbm
  Sitting here beside me?

  F            D
  Tubas in the moonlight

G7              C7        F      C#7   C7
  Will bring my loved one home
