At Last

Lyrics ,Music:Mack Gordon ,Harry Warren

The song was publishe 1942.

"At Last" is a 1941 song written by Mack Gordon and Harry Warren
for the musical film Orchestra Wives, starring George Montgomery
and Ann Rutherford.
It was performed in the film and on record by
Glenn Miller and his orchestra, with vocals by Ray Eberle and Pat Friday.
Unreleased recordings of the song, however,
had been made in 1941 by Glenn Miller for possible inclusion
in the film Sun Valley Serenade.
An orchestral version of the song without lyrics first appeared
in that movie in 1941.
A new version was recorded by Glenn Miller and His Orchestra in Chicago
on May 20, 1942, and released by RCA Victor Records as a 78 single,
catalogue number 27934-B, backed with the A side
"(I've Got a Gal In) Kalamazoo".
The song reached number 9 on the Billboard pop charts in 1942,
staying on the charts for 9 weeks, and later became a standard.
In 1960, it was covered by blues singer Etta James in an arrangement
by Riley Hampton that improvised on Warren's melody.
James' version was the title track in the same-named album
At Last! and was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1999.

Orchestra Wives

At last
My love has come along
My lonely days are over
And life is like a song

Oh yeah yeah
At last

The skies above are blue
My heart was wrapped up in clover
The night I looked at you

I found a dream, that I could speak to
A dream that I can call my own
I found a thrill to press my cheek to
A thrill that I have never known

Oh yeah yeah
You smiled, you smiled
Oh and then the spell was cast
And here we are in heaven
for you are mine...
