I Will be Home Again


(Benjamin/ Leveen/ Singer)

Elvis recorded I Will Be Home Again on April 4, 1960, at RCA’s Nashville studios. It was the first recording on which Charlie Hodge sang duet with Elvis. Bennie Benjamin, Raymond Leveen, and Lou Singer composed the song in 1944.



I will be home again, d
on't worry, dear
I'll be home again, so won't you dry the tear
The promise in your eyes will see me through
There'll be brighter skies when I come back to you

1. A-a-ah sweetheart, the love you're giving
Thrills my hungry heart
You make my life worth living
Although we are apart
I will be home again, we'll start anew
Darling, until then our dreams will have to do

1. (repeat)
