Misty
Ray Stevens
(Erroll Garner/Johnny Burke)

Covered many times, this song has had at least
four top 40 appearances, with one of the best-known
by Johnny Mathis in 1959. Ray's "country-fied" version
peaked at #14 in 1975, and gave him his second Grammy.

Look at me
I'm as helpless as a kitten up a tree
Ah, I'm walkin' on a cloud
I can't understand, Lord
I'm misty holdin' your hand

Walk my way
And a thousand violins begin to play
Or it might be the sound of your "hello"
That music I hear, Lord
I'm misty the moment you're near

You can say that you're leadin' me on
But it's just what I want you to do
Don't ya notice how hopelessly I'm lost
That's why I'm followin' you

Ooh, on my own
Should I wander through this wonderland alone, now
Never knowin' my right foot from my left
My hat from my glove, Lord
I'm misty, and too much in love

You can say that you're leadin' me on
But it's just what I want you to do
Don't ya notice how hopelessly I'm lost
That's why I'm followin' you

Ooh, on my own
Should I wander through this wonderland alone, now
Never knowin' my right foot from my left
My hat from my glove, Lord
I'm misty, and too much in love

(Misty) too much in love
(Misty) too much in love
(Misty)
(Misty) too much in love...

From: "David Hayman"
