Written by Victor Herbert and Al Dubin.
As recorded by the Glenn Miller Orchestra on November 5th, 1939 with Ray Eberle.
(The melody was actually written in 1919 as a piano piece subtitled "An American Idyll",
lyrics were added in 1939).
Summer, you old Indian Summer
Youre the tear that comes after June times laughter
You see so many dreams that dont come true
Dreams we fashioned when summertime was new
You are here to watch over
Some heart that is broken
By a word that somebody left unspoken
Youre the ghost of a romance in June
Going astray, fading too soon...
Thats why I say,
"Farewell to you, Indian Summer!"
