Sinatra initially recorded this song under Tommy Dorsey and his Orchestra. This rendition of the song was released as a B-side single in 1942 with a Jo Stafford performance of "A Boy in Khaki, a Girl in Lace" as the A-side.
This song was recorded by Sinatra again under Reprise Records for his tribute to Tommy Dorsey, I Remember Tommy.... This song didn't make it to the final version of the album, however, and was unreleased until the expanded edition of the album.

In the blue of evening when you appear close to me, dear one,
There in the dusk we'll share a dream reverie,
In the blue of evening while crickets call and stars are falling,
There 'neath the midnight sky you'll come to me.
In the shadows of the night we'll stand, I'll touch your hand.
And then, softly as your lovely eyes entreat, our lips will meet again.
In the blue of evening, night winds above whisper I love you,
There will we find romance in the blue of evening.
