Subject: Lyr Req: Good Night Waltz - Lyrics?

The same friend who asked me about 'My Little Girl' is so impressed with the Mudcat's swift response he wants me to see if anyone knows the lyrics to a tune called 'The Good Night Waltz'. (Incidentally NOT the Utah Phillips' song that keeps coming to my mind)

This is a tune that he says was played by big bands, among them Wayne King's. He thinks it was also sung/recorded by Doc Watson.

I haven't been able to find any reference to it online.

Anybody know this? My thanks and my admiration precede thee.

I'll bet that's it, Jim. I'll pass it on to my friend and see if that satisfies him.

Thanks a bunch, Jim.

Here's another possibility. This song has been recorded under the title GOOD NIGHT WALTZ or GOODNIGHT WALTZ.

From an arrangement for 4 voices in Barber Shop Memories, Bk 2 compiled and arranged by Hugo Fry (Alfred Pub Co, 1984), page 32:

Words and music by Leo Wood, Irving Bibo and Con Conrad (1923)

1. Goodnight dear, goodnight.
There's a light in your eyes shining bright,
Saying you love me too,
Just as I love you.
Goodnight, dear, goodnight.
For the last time tonight hold me tight.
Until we meet again, my sweet,
Goodnight, goodnight, goodnight.

2. Sleep well, dearie,
For I know you must be weary,
And tho' not near me,
You'll be with me in my dreams.
