Words & Music: Gene Autry (1936)

Lyrics

You’re the only star in my blue heaven,
And you’re shining just for me.
You’re the only star in my blue heaven,
And in dreams your face I see.

You’re the guiding light that brightens up the night,
Till you come in sight my heart is lonely.
You’re the only star in my blue heaven,
And you’re shining just for me.
