Tony Bennett — Caravan lyrics

Tony Bennett

This version did not chart but
It charted twice in 1937: Duke Ellington (# 4) and Barney Bigard (# 20)
In 1949 Billy Eckstine took it to # 27
In 1953 Ralph Marterie hit # 6 and The Esquire Boys managed # 27.
Words by Irving Mills and music by Duke Ellington and Juan Tizol

Night and stars above that shine so bright
The myst'ry of their fading light
That shines upon our caravan

Sleep upon my shoulder as we creep
Across the sand so I may keep
The mem'ry of our caravan

This is so exciting
You are so inviting
Resting in my arms
As I thrill to the magic charms

Of you beside me here beneath the blue
My dream of love is coming true
Within our desert caravan
[ Lyrics from: ]
