Tammy
The Ames Brothers Lyrics


I hear the cottonwoods whisperin' above
Tammy! Tammy! Tammy's in love!
The ole hootie owl hootie-hoo's to the dove
Tammy! Tammy! Tammy's in love!
Does my darling feel what I feel
When he comes near?
My heart beats so joyfully
You'd think that he could hear!
Wish I knew if he knew what I'm dreaming of!
Tammy! Tammy! Tammy's in love!

Whippoorwill, whippoorwill, you and I know
Tammy! Tammy! Can't let him go!
The breeze from the bayou keeps murmuring low
Tammy! Tammy! You love him so!
When the night is warm, soft and warm
I long for his charms!
I'd sing like a violin
If I were in his arms
Wish I knew if he knew what I'm dreaming of!
Tammy, Tammy, Tammy's in love!

Unfortunately, all of the brothers have passed, except for Ed. He was still performing at age 84.

Cynthia Amitrano

And sounded wonderful at that age as well. One of the best pop singers of all time.

He’s ninety three as of July 2020

Ed was in my 8mm, film art work shop, taught by Carl Linder, at UCLA, extention in Santa Monice on Saturday mornings. I was impressed by a really nice guy. That was maybe in '72 or so.

Mary Nida Smith

I love the Ames Brothers.

I love it when a romantic song about a woman is sung by men with manly voices and not boyish voices! Thanks for sharing this!

Cindy Breen

Great to hear again Ed seems to be the lead singer in this, Debbie Reynolds also sings this one nicely as well. Thanks for putting up.
