"I'll See You in My Dreams" is a popular song. It was written by Isham Jones, with lyrics by Gus Kahn, and was published in 1924. Originally recorded by Isham Jones and the Ray Miller Orchestra, it charted for 16 weeks during 1925, spending seven weeks at number 1 (US). Other popular versions in 1925 were by Marion Harris; Paul Whiteman; Ford & Glenn; and Lewis James, with three of these four reaching the Top 10. The song was chosen as the title song of the 1951 film I'll See You in My Dreams, a musical biography of Kahn. Popular recordings of it were made by many leading artists including Cliff Edwards, Louis Armstrong, Bing Crosby (recorded November 27, 1947), Doris Day, Ella Fitzgerald, Mario Lanza, Tony Martin, Anita O'Day, The Platters, Ezio Pinza, Sue Raney, Jerry Lee Lewis (1958, instrumental), Andy Williams, and Linda Scott. A "Texas Swing" version of the song was recorded by Bob Wills and his Texas Playboys. The song was also recorded by Django Reinhardt and the Quintet of the Hot Club of France, and inspired Merle Travis to record it as a guitar instrumental. Many other guitarists including Chet Atkins and Thom Bresh followed in Merle's footsteps. Michel Lelong, a French guitarist, published the first tab of this Travis' arrangement for the American publisher/guitarist Stefan Grossman's Guitare Workshop during the 1980s, following by Thom Bresh (Merle Travis 's son) for Homespun Tapes, and Marcel Dadi for Stefan Grossman 's Guitar Worshop.more »
Tho' the days are long,
Twilight sings a song,
Of the happiness that used to be;
Soon my eyes will close,
Soon I'll find repose,
And in dreams you're always near to me.
I'll See You In My Dreams
Hold you in my dreams,
Someone took you out of my arms,
Still I feel the thrill of your charms,
Lips that once were mine,
Tender eyes that shine,
They will light my way tonight,
I'll See You In My Dreams.
