Red Letters: Memories of You

Waking skies

At Sunrise,

Ev’ry sunset too,

Seems to be

Bringing me

Memories of you.

Here and there,

Ev’rywhere,

Scenes that we once knew,

And they all

Just recall

Memories of you.

How I wish I could forget

Those happy yester-years

That have left a rosary of tears.

 

Memories of You (1930)

lyricist-poet Andy Razaf

composer Eubie Blake

    1. Thanks very much. Right after posting I had a mad scramble looking for another audio. The one I originally used was suddenly blocked. I first tried archive.org, but failed to find an adequate vocal track and had to go back to the one now in the post.

      Glad you enjoyed the final result. šŸ™‚
