Frank Sinatra recorded this song on his 1964 album 'It Might as Well Be Swing', accompanied by Count Basie, under the direction of Quincy Jones. It was the last song Sinatra sang in public, on February 25, 1995, and the words "The Best is Yet to Come" are etched on Sinatra's tombstone. Though Sinatra made it popular, the song was actually written for and introduced by Tony Bennett.
Out of the tree of life
I just picked me a plumb
You came along
And everything started in to hum
