Harbor Lights (Hugh Williams & Jimmy Kennedy, 1937)

This is a pop standard, and a big hit for Sammy Kaye and for The Platters. Elvis also recorded it at his very first Sun session on July 5, 1954 -- just after "That's Alright (Mama)" and just before "Blue Moon Of Kentucky".

My instrumental arrangement has the melody on a vintage Italian bowlback mandolin, with two tenor guitars accompanying, one playing arpeggios and the other chords.
