Skylark Lyrics - Linda Ronstadt

Review The Song (1)

written by Hoagy Carmichael and Johnny Mercer
© 1941 Mercer Music/ Frank Music Corp (ASCAP)

Have you anything to say to me
Won't you tell me where my love can be
Is there a meadow in the mist
Where someone's waiting to be kissed

Oh skylark
Have you seen a valley green with spring
Where my heart can go a-journeying
Over the shadows and the rain
To a blossom-covered lane

And in your lonely flight
Haven't you heard the music in the night
Wonderful music
Faint as a will o' the wisp
Crazy as a loon
Sad as a gypsy serenading the moon

Oh skylark
I don't know if you can find these things
But my heart is riding on your wings
So if you see them anywhere
Won't you lead me there
Oh skylark
Won't you lead me there

I have not heard the Ronstadt version, but I remember Ella Fitzgerald's very well. It is a wonderful, optimistic song, cheerful in a contemplative way. It benefits from having been written by one of the most gifted songwriting teams of the genre, Hoagy Carmichael and Johnny Mercer, and it reflects the wartime longing for peace in all things. I remember.
