Single Perry Como RCA 1952
Goldie Hill – I Let the Stars Get In My Eyes, is country music song that was written by Slim Willet and Tommy Hill. The song was an answer song to the big pop music hit Perry Como had with his song “Don’t Let the Stars Get In Your Eyes.”
Slim Willet and Skeets McDonald also recorded country versions of the pop song that became hits. When Hill and Willet wrote the answer song, it was originally intended for Kitty Wells who like Goldie Hill was a star of the Louisiana Hayride. In 1952, Hill was trying to make it as a country artist after signing a contract with Decca Records that year. Her first single, 1952’s “Why Talk to My Heart,” was not successful. She would have a major hit, however, with this song written by singer Slim Willet and Hill’s brother, Tommy.

Along with Kitty Wells, Hill’s success inspired other female country singers to try to make into the music business. Some of these singers later did, like Jean Shepard in 1953 and Patsy Cline in 1957.

Goldie Hill – I Let the Stars Get In My Eyes lyrics

I let the stars get in my eyes, I let the moon steal my heart
You’ve been gone so long I couldn’t stay at home
What could I do, but give to him my love so dear
Now he’s the only one I’m thinkin’ of
Too many miles, too many days
Too many nights I was alone
His love was so grand when he held my hand
You know how the moonlight lures you on
I let the stars get in my eyes, I let the moon steal my heart
You’ve been gone so long I couldn’t stay at home
What could I do, but give to him my love so dear
Now he’s the only one I’m thinkin’ of
[Instrumental Break]
I let the stars get in my eyes, I let the moon steal my heart
You’ve been gone so long I couldn’t stay at home
What could I do, but give to him my love so dear
Now he’s the only one I’m thinkin’ of
Too many miles, too many days
Too many nights I was alone
His love was so grand when he held my hand
You know how the moonlight lures you on
I let the stars get in my eyes, I let the moon steal my heart
You’ve been gone so long I couldn’t stay at home
What could I do, but give to him my love so dear
Now he’s the only one I’m thinkin’ of
