Ricky Nelson - For Emily, Whenever I May Find Her Lyrics

What a dream I had
Pressed in organdy
Clothed in crinoline
Of smoky burgundy
Softer than the rain

I wandered empty streets down
Past the shop displays
I heard cathedral bells
Tripping down the alleyways
As I walked on

And when you ran to me your
Cheeks flushed with the night
We walked on frosted fields
Of juniper and lamplight
I held your hand

And when I awoke and
Felt you warm and near
I kissed your honey hair
With my grateful tears

Oh I love you girl
Oh how I love you
Oh how I love you

Ricky Nelson For Emily, Whenever I May Find Her Comments
  1. Rick Nelson

    beauiful song by Rick in 1968 aged 27

  2. Cheryl Johnson

    Art Garfunkel did the definitive version of this song. But I think Rick did a great job with this song. Really lovely.

    Rick Nelson

    I agree beautiful song by Rick

  3. John Weston

    Thank god for Art's emotional and overwhelmingly superior performance. Scrolling through the various versions and listened to this all the way through. Oh well you win some, you lose some

  4. Barry White

    Beautifully sung by Rick!

  5. David Chernofsky

    what a fantastic rendition of an underappreciated paul simon song

    magic vocals rick nelson

  7. daveedgeguitar

    Thanks for posting this! Big Rick fan! Saw him many times! He was a true artist and gentleman of the highest order!

  8. Bleustar Crash

    This is nice but Rick's voice just doesn't have the power or intensity of Garfunkel's.

  9. debbie jarvis

    beautiful and very romantic!!

  10. chucknchar T

    Wow, go Ricky, beautiful

  11. luvart2607

    It's dreamier than the origin version. But Art is still the best.

    Kenny Dobbins

    I love Simon And Garfunkel, but in my opinion Johnny Cash is the best, Elvis Presley is 2nd and Ricky Nelson is 3rd.

    Steve Bradley

    Takes me places

    Trip Fontaine

    If you like it dreamy, try Johnny Rivers' earlier version from the "Rewind" album, if you haven't already. I always loved that one.

  12. Rob Knight

    i'm a big fan of rick nelson but i don't think vocally you can beat art garfunkle.

    Kenny Dobbins

    I love Simon and Garfunkel, but in my opinion Johnny Cash is the best singer.
