Musical Monday - Tammy

Hello Everyone,

This past week hubs was flipping through the music channels when I heard one of my favorites. I was in the kitchen and I started yelling leave it there, leave it. I had gook all over my hands as I was cooking. I stood there in my kitchen doorway swaying and singing this tune. I loved this movie when I was a kid and I love this actress/singer too. But this song is just wonderful. Hubs said he had never even heard it before. So of course I had to tell him all about it and the movie. So without further delay I give you Debbie Reynolds' "Tammy"!!!!

I hear the cottonwoods whisperin' above,
"Tammy ... Tammy ... Tammy's in love"
The ole hooty-owl hooty-hoos 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 dreamin' 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

I could just sit here all day listening to it!!! If you have never seen Tammy and the Bachelor then go and find it and rent it and watch it!!! lol

Hop over to Diane's and check out others' Musical Monday. Until next time

Have a blessed day!

I loved that song and that movie. I was just a little girl then. And I didn't have a Barbie; instead I had a own Tammy doll, so the song was extra special. Ahh, the days of innocence.

I have never heard of it, too. But now I know why this is one of your favorites. Great choice! Have a wonderful week :)

I haven't heard this song since I was little. My mom used to sing it to my sister and I.

Thanks for the trip down memory lane. :-)

I have never heard this one! How fun that you happened to catch it the other day.

Tammy said...

My name is Tammy. Most of my life when adult males would find out that my name was Tammy and spelled this way they would ask me if I had seen that movie and then sing the song to me. LOL I worked in the entertainment industry (music)so you can imagine just how many people I had sing the song to me!!
I also noticed you must be from Alabama??! My father was too.
I loved your post.
I found you on SITS! Glad I did.
Have a great day!

Would you believe I've never seen this movie or heard the song either? I just added it to my Netflix queue.

And have I told you lately how pretty your blog is?

Oh I remember this from growing up. Cute song!

Hazel said...

Isn't it nice when we get all energized by memories brought about by a song?

MommyAmy said...

Lovely! I'd never heard of it before but you're absolutely right! Gonna have to add it to my Netflix queue.

Oh, thanks for making my day!
I sang Tammy for my children when they were babies, and they loved it as much as I did.
Nanny Goat in Panties - you may be interested to know that Tammy had a pet goat, named "NAN!"
It's a riot to look back on this one and see such a young Leslie Neilson. Did you love the other Tammy movies as much?
