Id be grateful if anyone could tell me the guitar chords for this song.

It was a hit in 1962 for the Aussie singer, Frank Ifield; written by Johnny Mercer,I believe.

Rich, if you feel up to it you might want to work your way through This scholarly dissertation on the "I Remember You" chords

Remember it was done as a slow song long before Frank Ifield aussified it up ....

The infamous outrageous Hector Nicol is quoted as saying that there was a punk version of this song called
" I remember You Ya Bastard" Please forgive the language I learned from a tram conductress after dropping? a large brass musical instrument onto her foot.*BG*

As far as I can remember, (and it is over forty years since I heard Frank Ifield sing this ) these are pretty much the chords for this classic Johnny Mercer song.

In some places I have given two chords, where either could be used, mostly a Cmaj7/Em choice. Also, if my memory serves me right, although the song is in the key of C it actually ends in G. Having said that, it probably isn't sung in the key of C at all, but transposition should be quite simple.

I Remember You

(Johnny Mercer & Victor Shertzinger
From the 1942 musical "Dames At Sea")

(C) I remember (Em/Cmaj7)you
(C) You're the one that (C7) made my dreams come (F)true
A (Fm) few kisses a(C)go.
(C) I remember (Em/Cmaj7)you
(C) You're the one that (C7) said I love you (F)too
Yes I (Fm) do. Didn't you (C) know?

(F) I remember (E) too a distant (A) bell
And (E) stars that (A) fell
Like the (D7) rain out of the (G) blue.
(C) When my life is (Em/Cmaj7)through
(C) And the angels (Em/C7) ask me to re(F)call (Fm)
The thrill of them (C)all
Then I will tell them I re(Am)mem(Bflat)ber
(Aflat) Tell them (Eflat)I re(Cm)mem(Bflat)ber
(F)Tell them I re(Bflat)member (G) you

Thanks, Murray. That's just what I need. Now all I have to do is teach it to the guitar player :)

Sorry, Murray, gotta disagree with your second chord. Should be B7 (try it!).

Yes, Guest T-Boy is perfectly correct, it should indeed be a B7 instead of the Em/Cmaj7 I suggested as the second chord.

Sorry, what can I say, it was late at night, my lady was asleep and I was doing it all in my head without the aid of the guitar ....

Rich,

Funny, I thought that Slim Whitman had the definative recording of this song. Who is this Frank dude?

Frank Ifield was an Australian singer who had a string of chart thits in Britain in the early Sixties.

Apart from his devastating good looks, his trademark was a very accomplished yodel, which he incorporated into all his hits, as I recall. He also had a big hit with Hank Williams "Lovesick Blues". I suspect that Hank Williams was a major early influence on the yodelling Aussie.

I'd forgotten about Slim Richey's version. Incredible voice.
My interest in this song was revived on Friday evening at a house concert featuring Terry Tufts, a folksinger and monster fingerpicker from Ottawa (Canada). Terry does a worthy version too.

Has anyone heard Diana Kralls version? Whoooeee, I like that girl's voice. It is on her latest CD "The Look Of Love". I must confess I keep hearing Frank Ifield's version though in my head and want to sing it that way but I like her style. VF

Am I missing something? Two postings today linked to yodelling? I remember supporting Frank way back in the seventies at a working men's club in the North of England and he was on his way out then! Impressive yodel, but I couldn't help feeling "what's all that about?" Poor Frank must have getting on a bit even then........."I remember...Er...What's that line again?" Maybe Robbie Williams is going to release a new Yodel-meets-Swing type C.D. I'm placing my advance order now!

I have the sheet music somewhere. I'm sure it was in the musical "The Fleet's In".
