Yearwood, Trisha - I'll Be Seeing You Lyrics




Cathedral bells were tolling
And our hearts sang on
Was it the spell of Paris
Or the April dawn
Who knows if we shall meet again
But when the morning chimes ring sweet again...

I'll be seeing you in all the old
Familiar places
That this heart of mind embraces
All day through
In that small café, the park
Across the way
The children's carousel
The chestnut tree
The wishing well

I'll be seeing you in every lovely summer's day
In everything that's light and gay
I'll always think of you that way
I'll see you in the morning sun

And when the night is new
I'll be looking at the moon
But I'll be seeing you

In that small café, the park
Across the way
The children's carousel
The chestnut tree
The wishing well

I'll be seeing you, in every lovely summer's day
In everything that's light and gay
I'll always think of you that way
I'll see you in the morning sun
And when the night is new
I'll be looking at the moon
But I'll be seeing you

    My favorite (most recent) recording of I'LL BE SEEING YOU
    I'm pulling up in my driveway a moment ago, listening to Siriusly Sinatra satellite radio, playing someone who sounds a little like Petula Clark (one of my life-long musical heroes). It's Trisha Yearwood . . . with a full symphony orchestra, performing my “new favorite” orchestral version of I'LL BE SEEING YOU.

    At the start of this year Siriusly Sinatra programmer 'Jersey Lou' Simon hosted one of his rare 'town hall' events and -- taking questions from the live, studio audience -- Trisha hesitated to stipulate her “favorite” track on the album. But after the death of her Mom she said the closing track, I'LL BE SEEING YOU, was the most emotionally affecting for her to sing.

    Academy Award winning arranger Vince Mendoza wrote all the beautiful charts for these songs; he outdid himself on I'LL BE SEEING YOU – the opening and closing orchestral flourishes would make any great arranger proud.

    Back in February, Rolling Stone interviewer Steven L. Betts spoke with Trisha just before her “Let's Be Frank” album was released, noting that,

    “Recording the entire album in just four days at Capitol Records studios in Hollywood, the legendary spot where Sinatra cut many of his best-known tunes, Yearwood sang into Sinatra’s vintage (Neumann) microphone and was accompanied by a 55-piece orchestra.

    “Along with familiar material from the Great American Songbook, Let’s Be Frank features “For the Last Time,” an original song Yearwood wrote with her husband Garth Brooks . . .

    [Later in the interview, in answer to a question, Trisha paid tribute to her late Mom's musical influence]

    "Up until now, you’ve been known primarily as a country singer, but these standards are just as much a part of your musical DNA as Patsy Cline and Linda Ronstadt, right?

    "The very first influence here was my mom because she was born in ’37, so she loved that music. She loved those movies, and all those musicals. So when I was a kid in the Seventies, that was one of our things. We would sit and watch these old movies together. So I learned this music through her and loved it all. I always wanted to do that standards record.”

    “You’re singing these vocals live, with 55 musicians – a high-pressure situation. How did you deal with that? 

    “I’m confident when it comes to singing, but I was so nervous that first day I forgot my charts at the hotel. We had to go back and get my charts. I was about to throw up the whole time. It’s 55 people, and if you don’t know the arrangements and you mess up, 55 people have to start over.

    “After you sing the first song with the musicians, if they like you, they don’t clap — they tap their music stands with their bows. So, you’re waiting the whole first song to see if you get the tap. I guess I would have gone home if they didn’t tap, but they did! . . . This was a very live record, and it happened fast. We recorded 12 songs in four days, and then mixed it the next four days. So, really, in a week, we were done.”

    Thanks for sharing the official version Trisha Yearwood. Celebrated this day at Sinatra Family -- Forum -- "Siriusly Sinatra" -- MY FAVORITE VERSION -- YOURS TOO? https://sinatrafamily.com/forum/showthread.php/50225-My-Favorite-Version-%28yours-too-%29?p=1277466#post1277466
