Keith Hampshire - Forever and Ever (Baby I'm Gonna Be Yours)

Recommended Posts

Need to make a request by asking

you all to put your thinking (and memory) hats on for my wife Sue and I. We

got married back in August of 1974. During our honeymoon there was a song (ballad)

that played 6 to 8 times per day on the radio. Though "Our Song" was and

still is Nights In White Sstin, this song has some special meaning for as as well. The

problem is we do not know the name, nor the artist, of the song. We have

tried to find it on our own and failed miserably. So, I'm asking if anyone

out there has a handle on this.

Some of the words, to the best of my recollection, are:

"You can hear church bells,

ringing in the air,

Listen to the birds sing

in the evening air,

But the sweetest thing

I ever heard

Is when you whisper soft

In my ear

Baby I'm gonna be your's forever

You are all the world to me

Baby I'm gonna be your's forever

Love you, you know I shouldn't

Leave you, you know I couldn't

So Baby I'll love you forever and ever and ever"

So, once again, time line of August 1974, no title or artist name, just a

few words, that may be and are even probably a little wrong but seem to

sound correct when I sing them. Anybody remember this?

this doesn't have church bells, but it's got some other verses that sound like yours...

I'm Yours

by Elvis Presley

Words & music: Don Robertson / Hal Blair)

My love I offer you now,

My heart and all it can give,

For just as long as I live I'm yours.

No arms but yours dear will do.

My lips will always be true,

My eyes can see only you, I'm yours.

And as the years roll along

Your joy and tears I'll gladly share,

And when things go wrong dear

Just hold out your hand and I'll be there,

With every beat of my heart,

With every breath that I take,

Now and forever, sweetheart, I'm yours.

And as the years roll along

Your joy and tears I'll gladly share,

And when things go wrong dear

Just hold out your hand and I'll be there,

With every beat of my heart,

With every breath that I take,

Now and forever, sweetheart, I'm yours.

This song was sung by a male artist. My wife seemed to think it was called "Forever and Ever" but I've never been able to find it anywhere. Found a request by "Jeff" on another site looking for same song - here is his request:

This song keeps running through my head and I do not know the artist

or song title was from the early seventies sung by a male as a

ballad on the radio

this is all I have

that afternoon down in the park

walking in the green grass, till it was almost dark

and we heard the birds sing

mmmmmm it sounded so sweet

we listened to the chuch bells

ringing in the street

but the sweetest sound thatI'll ever hear

is when you whisper low in my ear

baby I'm gonna be yours forever

you are the world to me

thats all i got any body out there know your early seventies

tunes??????

thank you

Jeff

Thanks for all your help and hoping someone out there can find this.

I kind of doubt it was a regional hit as I am from the Maritime Provinces in Canada. I heard it in New Brunswick (where I live and got married)and Prince Edward Island (where we honeymooned). We are a pretty small part of Canada and North America and rarely get regional hits, then or now.

But you never know I guess...

I'm  new  to  this  site.  The song "Forever & Ever"(Baby I'm  Gonna  be  Yours) was the song we chose  for  our  wedding in 1975.  We were sitting  in  a parking lot having just bought our rings when it came on the  radio.  I bought  the 45 & gave  it  to  my dear friend, now my brother-in-law, who  learned it & played it on his guitar while we were signing the register.  We played it on our 25th anniversary .  My nephew didn't  know  what  a 45 was.  Times have certainly changed since those days.
