Arthur Johnston (1898-1954) was an American composer and pianist, best known for his scores for film and stage, where he worked closely with Irving Berlin. His most successful song is undoubtedly the 1936 number Pennies From Heaven, with lyrics by Jonny Burke, which received an Academy Award nomination for “Best Original Song”. Since then, it has been re-recorded and covered by many famous artists: Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Shirley Bassey, and Michael Bublé among others.
This absolute classic has been transcribed for Piano, Voice, and Guitar, with Boxed Chord symbols for easy use. Whether you’re a film geek or not, if you enjoy a great tune then this is the song for you!
