Prime Artist: Frank Sinatra
Lyrics by: Otto Harbach (b. Otto Abels Hauerbach)
Music by: Jerome Kern (J. David K.)
From the Show: Roberta 1935 (M)
You and I
Throughout a summer day
Have walked a sunlit way
Or stopped to play.
You and I,
Wave wandered hand in hand
Throughout a happy land
That we had planned.
I had hoped that our way might end
Where the sky and blue horizon blend.
Yet we've both walked our one last mile.
It's goodbye for a while.
When you shall see flowers that lie on the plain,
Lying there sighing for one touch of rain,
Then you may borrow
Some glimpse of my sorrow,
And you'll understand
How I long for the touch of your hand.
I've loved you so
You'll never know
How through those far ways
And strange star ways
On sea or on land
I will long for the touch of your hand.
