Artie Shaw "Deep Purple"

Helen Forrest was one of the best female singers of the swing era (by my opinion) The "Deep Purple" is definately my favourite song of all Artie Shaw stuff.

 

Deep Purple

 

When the deep purple falls over sleepy garden walls

And the stars begin to twinkle in the sky

In the mist of a memory you wander back to me

Breathing my name with a sigh

 

 

In the still of the night once again you hold me thight

Though you're gone, your love lives on when moonlight beams

And as long as my heart will beat

Sweet lovers we'll always meet here in my deep purple dreams.

 

When the deep purple falls over sleepy garden walls

And the stars begin to twinkle in the sky

In the mist of a memory you wander back to me

Breathing my name with a sigh

 

 

In the still of the night once again you hold me thight

Though you're gone, your love lives on when moonlight beams

And as long as my heart will beat

Sweet lovers we'll always meet here in my deep purple dreams.

 

And as long as my heart will beat

Sweet lovers we'll always meet here in my deep purple dreams

Here in my deep purple dreams

Here in my deep purple dreams

Here in my deep purple dreams
