Johnny Hodges

John Keith "Johnny" Hodges (July 25, 1906 – May 11, 1970) was an American alto saxophonist, best known for his solo work with Duke Ellington's big band. He played lead alto in the saxophone section for many years, except the period between 1932–1946 when Otto Hardwick generally played first chair. Hodges was also featured on soprano saxophone, but refused to play soprano after 1946, when he was given the lead chair. He is considered one of the definitive alto saxophones players of the Big Band Era (alongside Benny Carter). more »

A sailboat in the moonlight and you
Wouldn't that be heaven, a heaven just for two?

A soft breeze on a June night and you
What a perfect setting for letting dreams come true

A chance to sail away
To Sweetheart Bay beneath the stars that shine
A chance to drift, for you to lift
Your tender lips to mine

Some things, dear, that I long are few
Just give me a sailboat in the moonlight and you

A chance to sail away
To Sweetheart Bay beneath the stars that shine
A chance to drift, for you to lift
Your tender lips to mine

Some things, dear, that I long for are few
Just give me a sailboat in the moonlight and you
