  • I'll be seeing you
    In all the old familiar places
    That this heart of mine embraces
    All day and through
    In that small cafe
    The park across the way
    The children's carousel
    The chestnut trees
    The wishing well

    I'll be seeing you
    In every lovely summer's day
    In everything that's night and day
    I'll always think of you that way

    I'll find you in the morning sun
    And when the night is new
    I'll be looking at the moon
    But I'll be seeing you

    I'll be seeing you
    In every lovely summer's day
    In everything that's night and day
    I'll always think of you that way

    I'll find you in the morning sun
    And when the night is new
    I'll be looking at the moon
    But I'll be seeing you Writer/s: Irving Kahal, Sammy Fain

  • Nancy from Tucson,azYour lyrics are good, but I think it says "in everything that's light and gay", not 'everything that's night and day' like you wrote. It was back when GAY just meant Happy, not that there's anything wrong with alternate lifestyles.
  • Rose Ann Derosa Werbel from FloridaMy dad was in the army and we both love to sing so he would write to my mom and tell her to have me learn certain songs .. I'll be seeing you was his favorite and it still is mine
  • Joyce Griffing-roberts from Manchester Connecticut UsaThis song gives me GOOSE bumps. Brenda Lee does an awesome job on this song. Give it a listen.
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NySeventy five years ago today on July 18th, 1944, "I'll Be Seeing You" by Bing Crosby was the #1 record on Billboard's National Best Selling Retail Records in Stores chart, it's was in it's third of four non-consecutive weeks in the top spot...
    After it's fourth week at #1 it fell to #2, but I don't think Mr. Crosby was too upset, for the record that replaced it in the top spot was his original version of "Swinging On A Star"*, and it remained at #1 for nine weeks...
    In addition, on July 18th, 1944 he had three other records on the Top 10, "Amor" {at #4}, "Long Ago (And Far Away)" {at #5}, and "I Love You" {at #6}...
    * "Swinging On A Star" won the Academy Award for 'Best Original Song', it was featured in the movie 'Going My Way'..
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn October 1, 1959, the Poni-Tails performed "I'll Be Seeing You" on the Dick Clark ABC-TV weekday-afternoon program 'American Bandstand'...
    A little under four weeks later on October 26th "I'll Be Seeing You" entered the Hot Top 100 chart at position #89, the next week it was off the chart, the following week it re-entered at #92 and then the next week, it's third and final week, it peaked at #87...
    As noted above, "I'll Be Seeing You' was first performed in the 1938 Broadway musical 'Right This Way'...
    On July 1st, 1944 Bing Crosby's version of the song peaked at #1 {for four non-consecutive weeks}...
    Three other covered versions have charted; Tommy Sands {#51 in 1959}, the Five Satins {#79 in 1960}, and Frank Sinatra {#58 in 1961}...
    The Poni-Tails had two other Top 100 records, "Born Too Late" {#7 in 1958} and "Seven Minutes In Heaven" {#85, also in 1958}.
