Dusty Springfield- Come Back To Me (1967)
From the 1965 Broadway musical, ‘On A Clear Day You Can See Forever’, with reworked lyrics- a requirement if the song was to make any sense outside of the show.
Sandwiched between ‘Welcome Home’ and ‘If You Go Away’ on the album Where Am I Going?, it was decidedly out of place.
On your mark, now get set
Hop a mule, hop a jet in a towel wringing wet
I don’t care
This is where you should be
From the hills to the shore
Ride the wind to my door
Turn the highways to dust
Break the law if you must
Move the world, only just come back to me
Must I yell ‘til I’m blue?
Where are you and will you come back to me?
Have you gone to the moon
Or the corner saloon?
In Rome or Rangoon, I’m a wreck
Where in heck can you be?
Love the lyrics & the big band.
