Reynolds Debbie
Best Of Debbie Reynolds
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
