The world is waiting for the sunrise
Les Paul & Mary Ford

Written in 1919 with words by Eugene Lockhart & music by Ernest Seitz
Originally popularized by Isham Jones 2(1)-March 1923 (instrumental) and
John Steel, tenor star of Brodway musicals, #4-April 1923. It was revived in
1951 by Les Paul & Mary Ford and hit # 2 with the most endearing and enduring version.

#4-October 1951 on the cash box Juke Box chart
#3-October 1951 on the billboard June Box chart
#3-October 1951 on the billboard Best Seller chart

Dear one, the world is waiting for the sunrise.
Ev'ry rose is covered with dew
And while the world is waiting for the sunrise
And my heart is calling you.

[Instrumental]

Dear one, the world is waiting for the sunrise.
Every little rose bud is covered with dew
And my heart is calling you
The thrush on high his sleepy mate is calling
And my heart is calling you.

Transcribed by Hit Parade and Ronald E. Hontz
