Friendly Persuasion
Pat Boone Lyrics


Thee I love, more than the meadow so green and still
More than the mulberries on the hill
More than the buds of a May apple tree, I love thee

Arms have I, strong as the oak, for this occasion
Lips have I, to kiss thee, too, in friendly persuasion

Thee is mine, though I don't know many words of praise
Thee pleasures me in a hundred ways
Put on your bonnet, your cape, and your glove
And come with me, for thee I love

Friendly persuasion

Thee is mine, though I don't know many words of praise
Thee pleasures me in a hundred ways
Put on your bonnet, your cape, and your glove
And come with me, for thee I love

Master music-makers Dimitri
Tiomkin (composer), and
Paul Francis Webster (lyricist)
created the perfect song to
set the tone for
one of the most
beautiful films ever
produced by Hollywood. No
experience watching a dvd of
this film can even remotely compare
with actually having been
present in a movie
theatre during the
release of the film,
and watching the
curtains open to
this glorious theme. We not only don't have
the theatres, the
film scorers, the
lyricists and screen writers, or
the actors and
actresses, we don't even have
the CURTAINS!

Pat Boone is the
only individual connected with
"Friendly Persuasion" who
is still alive, as of
June 9, 2018.

Just discovered Carl Smith on
ALL THE WORLD
IS LONELY NOW
on Guy Miller ch.
(If you missed the Belmont Stakes,
google it to see
"Justify" win the
Triple Crown. But
the most astonishing part
was the 24/1 "Gronkowski" came from dead
last to place second!)

Pat Boone and Nat King Cole, two singers with what could well be some of the most romantic voices ever!
