Song History...Try To Remember...

Try To Remember is a favorite song of ours. This song looks at the season a little differently than yearly seasons. I have included two versions that we recorded. A vocal version sung by my brother Douglas Wayne and my father, George Harvey. And an instrumental version played by yours truly (Janey Loree). These are home recordings so we didn't get all the mistakes out! Enjoy!!

This post is entered in the BLOG VILLAGE Fall Fest Carnival!




Try to remember the kind of September
When life was slow and oh so mellow
Try to remember the kind of September
When grass was green and grain so yellow
Try to remember the kind of September
When you were a young and a callow fellow
Try to remember and if you remember
Then follow ( follow ) follow ( follow ) follow . . .

Try to remember when life was so tender
That no one wept except the willow
Try to remember when life was so tender
That dreams were kept beside your pillow
Try to remember when life was so tender
That love was an ember about to billow
Try to remember and if you remember
Then follow ( follow ) follow ( follow ) follow . . .

Deep in December it's nice to remember
Although you know the snow will follow
Deep in December it's nice to remember
Without a hurt, the heart is hollow
Deep in December it's nice to remember
The fire of September that made you mellow
Deep in December our hearts should remember

Then follow ( follow ) follow ( follow ) follow . . .

Beautiful song. Is it a waltz?

This is a wonderful blog.

Now you got me to thinking...I will check on that, Sandy! Look for a post on my findings.

Thank you for stopping by.

You know, I could see this song being used to waltz by with ladies in pastel, fall colored, long flowing dresses and the gentlemen wearing white tuxedos!
