About Tammy

"Tammy" is a popular song with music by Jay Livingston and lyrics by Ray Evans. It was published in 1957 and made its debut in the film Tammy and the Bachelor. It was nominated for the 1957 Oscar for Best Original Song. "Tammy" is heard in the film in two versions. The one that became a number one hit single for Debbie Reynolds in 1957 is heard midway through the film, and was a UK No. 2 hit single in the same year. The version that used for the film's main titles was a hit for the Ames Brothers; there have also been several other cover versions of the song. The song's title served as the inspiration for Berry Gordy's first record label. In 1959, Gordy set up a new record company, and wanted to call it "Tammy Records" after the song, but the name was taken and "Tamla" was chosen instead. The main Motown label was created later that year and the two labels were incorporated into the Motown Record Corporation in 1960. Tamla served as a primary R&B and soul subsidiary throughout Motown's existence.

I hear the cottonwoods whisperin' above
Tammy, Tammy, Tammy's in love
The old hootie owl hootie-hoo's to the dove
Tammy, Tammy, Tammy's in love
Does my lover feel what I feel when he comes near?
My heart beats so joyfully
You'd think that he could hear
Wish I knew if he knew what I'm dreaming of
Tammy, Tammy, Tammy's 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, Tammy's in love
