Savannah is Calling Me
Johnny Mercer (1909-2009), Hoagy Carmichael
have you anything to say to me?
Can you tell me where my love can be?
Is there a meadow in the mist,
where someone's waiting to be kissed.
have you seen a valley green with Spring
Where my heart can go a journeying
over the shadows and the rain
to a blossom-covered lane?
And in your lonely flight,
haven't your heard the music in the night
faint as a will o'the wisp,
crazy as a loon
sad as a gypsy seranading the moon
I don't know if you can find these things
but my heart is riding on your wings
so, if you see them anywhere
won't you lead me there?
