I Hear You Knocking
Gale Storm Lyrics

You went away and left me long time ago
And now you're knockin' on my door

I hear you knocking but you can't come in
I hear you knocking, go back where you've been
I begged you not to go, but you said goodbye
And now you tell me all your lies
I hear you knocking, but you can't come in
I hear you knocking, go back where you've been

You better get back to your use to be
'Cause your kind of love ain't good for me

I hear you knocking, but you can't come in
I hear you knocking, go back where you've been
I told you way back in Fifty Two
That I would never go with you
I hear you knocking, but you can't come in
I hear you knocking, go back where you've been

Man I wasn't born in this time but wasn't this era just the greatest? The music, the clothes, the purity just great

all great except cigarette smoke everywhere

The crappy medicine, the McCarthy Hearings, the lack of internet; the only tube radio, 3 channels TV. Ppl didn't have fricken' air-conditioning, and cars got 8mpg. It took 8 days to get a camera pix developed and printed. There are/were great artists in every age, but let's not pretend that anyone sane would trade quality of life of 2020 with any time in the past. That era was the sh*ts - the artists (some) were great.

@DontTreadOnMe IwontTreadOnYou that was way after this though. She was an alcoholic in the 70s

@Angela Carleton I heard she struggled with alcoholism but eventually got sober. The alcohol issue probably didn't help either.

Yes, it was a purer time where people were gentle, talented and weren't as boastful about themselves as today stars.- I just wished Gale Storm had a better talent manager because she didn't seem to do as well as others show business people. I'm sure her husband was one of the reasons plus she had several children long before she became a star. From what I gathered she didn't perform in other media of show business - Ed Sullivan Show or other talk show host that I can't remember - she would have done better financially. Gale - RIP


When I was a kid growing up in the San Fernando Valley, saw her at the Skating rink on Ventura Blvd in Tarzana. She actually was a pretty darn good skater, but had so many fans around her , she was on the ice for a brief time and took off her skates and left. I remember her being very kind and nice to us kids. Great memory

My mother idolized Gale Storm so much so that she felt compelled to name me Gail.
