"Whistling Away the Dark" as written by Henry Nicola Mancini and John H. Mercer....
Often I think this sad, old world

Em Am/F# B7
Is whis - tl - ing in the dark;

B7 B7/6 Cdim B7
Just like a child, who, late from school,

Cdim(III) B7 Em
Walks bravely home through the park.

Am Am7 (Am6) Em
To keep their spir - its soaring,

Am/F# B7 Em
And keep the night at bay,

Am Am7 Am7/G Am/F#
Neither quite knowing which way they are going,

B7 Am7 B7
They sing the shadows away.

Em B+ Em7 Em6
Often I think my poor, old heart

Em Am/F# B7
Has gi - ven up for good;

B7 B7/6 Cdim B7
And then I see a brave new face,

Cdim(III) B7 Em
I glimpse some new neigh - bor - hood.

Am Am7 (Am6) Em
So walk me back home, my dar - ling,

Am/F# B7 Em
Tell me dreams really come true,

Am Am/F# Em B+ B7 Am7 Em B+
Whistling, whistling, here in the dark with you,

Am Am/F# Em B+ B7 Cdim Em
Whistling, whistling, here in the dark with you.
