Let Me Call You Sweetheart

Words & Music:

Beth Slater Whitson & Leo Friedman

This 1910 beauty has been recorded by more artists than you can name and has appeared in many movie soundtracks.  It won the "Towering Song Award" from the Songwriters' Hall Of Fame in 2001.  I need the chords to the intro!



I am dreaming Dear of you, day by day

Dreaming when the skies are blue, when they're gray;

When the silvery moonlight gleams, still I wander on in dreams,

In a land of love, it seems, just with you.



A      D9        A            Bm7-5  A  D    F#7  B7

Let me call you "Sweetheart", I'm--- in love with you.

E7     Bm7-5    E7      Bm7-5    A    Edim  E7

Let me hear you whisper that you love me--, too.

A        D9         A       Bm7-5  A    D    F#7  B7

Keep the love-light glowing in---- your eyes so-- true.

D      Cdim      A            Bm7-5  D9   E7   A

Let me call you "Sweetheart", I'm in love with you.


Longing for you all the while, more and more

Longing for the sunny smile, I adore

Birds are singing far and near, roses blooming everywhere

You, alone, my heart can cheer; you, just you


Let me call you "Sweetheart", I'm in love with you.

Let me hear you whisper that you love me too.

Keep the love-light glowing in your eyes so true.

Let me call you "Sweetheart", I'm in love with you.
