Jane Morgan – With Open Arms

20 May

Here’s ONE of the songs on our play list – The Honor Roll of Hits

Jane Currier was born on Christmas day, 1920 in Boston Massachusetts, although she was raised in Florida. She later trained as a lyric soprano at the Julliard School of Music in New York City. Jane not only had a clear, strong voice, but also could sing in many languages. Jane was spotted in a night club and was whisked to France, where she became very successful. When she returned home, she was in demand on television and the night club circuit as “The American Girl From Paris”. She hit the Hot 100 five times. “With Open Arms” peaked at number 39 in 1959. I remember hearing it quite a lot on Cleveland radio when I was growing up, and always liked the song. That’s why I decided to share it with you. Listen for Jane on TUNEDEX MEMORIES

With Open Arms – written by Burt Bacharach & Hal David

(Ah-blinka-chunk) Jane Morgan - With Open Arms

I wait with open arms
Down by the river where the boats come in
And when the boats come in
I run to him with open arms

Although he’s on the shore
His heart is still a hundred miles at sea
But then he kisses me
And I can tell he’s mine once more

All night I hold him tight
He’s mine until the dawn
Then when the fishing boats go out again, he’s gone
Gone away and…

I pray all through the day
That he’ll return and make my life begin
And when his boat comes in
I run to him with open arms

All night I hold him tight
He’s mine until the dawn
Then when the fishing boats go out again, he ‘s gone
Gone away and…

I pray all through the day
That he’ll return and make my life begin
And when his boat comes in
I run to him with o-pen arms

(Down by the river where the boats come in
A blinka-chunk!)
