DT Lyrics:









Subject: You've heard my voice
From: Lew In NJ @ Hurdy Gurdy
Date: 09 Mar 99 - 05:36 PM

Many years ago, 1964 in the summer I believe, I heard a song which contained the words "You've heard my voice and you know my name". Which I believe was the ending line in either a verse or the chorus of the song. There were opening lines in one of the verses that went:
    If you've ever kissed in the summer rain
    Slept where the snows and the have lain
    If you've ever heard a baby cry
    Then you've heard my voice and you know my name
I have had this going through head for the last number of months.
Please help with the words and correct title.

It seems to me that the song your refering to was performed and written by a girl from Brooklyn College.

It was a real tear jerker - I will look in my 60's notebooks for the words.

Keep the faith!

My often faulty memory tells me that this was recorded by Glen Yarborough, but I don't know if it was with the Limeliters or when he was working solo. I just spent about 20 minutes going through the Limeliters' Web site, but couldn't find any mention of the song. I tried to go into Glen Yarborough's site, but the search kept crashing my computer. I hope it's not sending you on a wild goose chase, but I'm fairly certain if you can chase down GY's work, you'll find the song.

cheers ddw

From: Amos

You've Heard my Voice (W.Schorre)

You’ve heard my voice
You’ve heard my voice
And you know my name

If you’ve ever kissed in a summers rain
If you’ve slept where the winds and the snows have lain
If you’ve ever heard a lonely train
Then you’ve heard my voice
And you know my name

If you’ve bowed your head when you’re filled with pride
If you’ve learned of death when a bird has died
If you’ve tasted tears when a child has cried
Then you’ve heard my voice
And you know my name

Well now you’ve heard my voice in the winds of spring
Seen my face where the roses cling
I am the touch that the warm rains bring
I make my home in the heart of everything
In the drivin’ rain of a summer squall
When the summer’s gone and the petals fall
When the day is done and the night birds call
Then you’ve heard my voice
And you know my name

Well now you’ve heard my voice in the winds of spring
Seen my face where the roses cling
I am the touch that the warm rains bring
I make my home in the heart of everything
In the drivin’ rain of a summer squall
When the summer’s gone and the petals fall
When the day is done and the night birds call
Then you’ve heard my voice
And you know my name
You know my name
You know my name
You know my name

ANothe rposting of the same lyrics cites Glenn Yarborough:

"No piece of music, however, has ever captivated me in the way that Art Podell and Walter Schorr's song You Know My Name has. The piece was composed in 1962 when Podell was part The New Christy Minstrels. I came to know and love the message as it was performed by Glenn Yarbrough of the Limeliters in the opening cut on his first solo album Time to Move On in 1964.

You Know My Name
    Art Podell & Walter Schorr

You've heard my voice.
You've heard my voice
and you know my name.

If you've ever kissed in the summer rain,
If you've slept where wind and snows have lain,
If you've ever heard a lonely train:
Then you've heard my voice,
And you know my name.

If you've bowed your head when you're filled with pride,
If you've learned of death when a bird has died,
If you've tasted tears when a child has cried:
Then you've heard my voice,
And you know my name.

You've heard my voice in the winds of spring.
Seen my face where the roses cling.
I am the touch that the warm rains bring.
I make my home in the heart of everything.

In the driving rain of a summer squall,
When the summer's gone and the petals fall,
When the day is done, and the night birds call:
Then you've heard my voice
And you know my name.
"

From here.

I first - and only - heard "You Know My Name" in about '63 or '64 sung on an album (can't help you with the album name) by a group called The NEW CHRISTY MINSTRELS. They were a group of about 10 to 15 folks. Absolutely great tune and lyrics and I've sung it ever since. Never was able to find the original recording again. Have thought of posting it on You Tube, but don't think I could do justice to the Minstrels.

Amos:

Art Podell is still performing NCM songs in a small band, along with founder, Randy Sparks, and Clarence Treat, among others. I just heard from Randy, who is recovering from recent cancer treatment and doing well.   

I also have the Limeliters vinyl album on which this song appears. Another treasure in my old record collection is "Art & Paul - Songs of Earth and Sky" from the early 1960's. Art was in Greenwich Village in late '50's, along with Paul Potash, who later wound up in both the Christy Minstrels and The Back Porch Majority (another Sparks entity). They made, I think, two albums as a duo, backed by Dick Rosmini on this one.

TJ:

If you want to make a project of capturing those revered vinyl productions into digital form and making CDs of them, I have a USB turntable and the necessary computer software to do so.

Drop me a PM sometime. I think we'd enjoy each other.

Amazon.com shows the song "You Know My Name" on The New Christy Minstrels Presenting/In Person CD. This is the version I remember from the '60s. You can hear a sample of it on their website.

I heard this song just once in my life. I was at the bottom of the Grand Canyon, and the singer had a beautiful soprano voice. I shall always treasure the memory of it.

When she sang it, it was a bit different than the above. The words ending each verse were:

Then you've heard my voice, yes, you've heard my voice.
You know my name.

Technical question: what causes the apostrophes in the original to turn into O's with a tilda here at the Mudcat?

Amos - my belated thanks for posting.

It would be clearer that this thread is about a song if the title were either in title case or if "Lyric Add" were added.

Sounds like a good song.

Amos copy-pastes from a Mac with weird fonts, and he comes up with words like "youÕve" because his curly quotes change into characters that are almost as strange as he is...

(er....sorry, Amos. The devil made me do it. But I DID fix all those characters for you, and I clarified the thread title.)

Thanks for the explanation, Joe. It's a Mac vs PC thing.

At first I thought the lyrics came from a Swedish site.

(Amos, I don't think you're strange. You are okay. Pay no attention to Joe; he's from California.)

This is THE most rocking, driving song I've ever heard. It is on the New Christy Minstrels second album, "Live at the Trubadore" -- like cut #7.
