Today’s prompt suggestion is for love songs from the decade of the 1950s. Thanks, Bee! The month is barely half done and I’m really enjoying finding songs for your challenge. 🙂

There were a a lot of sweet, romantic type movies made during the 50s and 60s. I’m sure I didn’t see them until later on, but I liked all of them. I know I’d seen this one, and there were four featuring the character of Tammy, who was played by Debbie Reynolds, and then later ones by Sandra Dee.

***

“Tammy”, by Debbie Reynolds was a song from the 1957 movie, “Tammy and the Bachelor’. It was written by Ray Evans (lyrics) and the music was by Jay Livingston.

I hear the cottonwoods whisprin above
Tammy! Tammy! Tammys in love!
The ole hootie owl hootie-hoos to the dove
Tammy! Tammy! Tammys in love!
Does my darling feel what I feel
When he comes near?
My heart beats so joyfully
You’dthink that he could hear!
Wish I knew if he knew what I’m dreaming of!
Tammy! Tammy! Tammys in love!Whippoorwill, whippoorwill, you and I know
Tammy! Tammy! Can’t let him go!
The breeze from the bayou keeps murmuring low
Tammy! Tammy! You love him so!
When the night is warm, soft and warm
I long for his charms!
I’d sing like a violin
If I were in his arms
Wish I knew if he knew what I’m dreaming of!
Tammy, Tammy, Tammys in love!
