Remember Me / Recuérdame

words & music: Phil Coulter


The moonlight dances among the trees,
the campfire glows in the Autumn breeze,
And I am lost in my thoughts of you,
remember me, recuérdame,

A comrade strums on a sad guitar,
my mind is drifting to where you are,
I’m holding you as I used to do,
remember me, recuérdame, mi amor!

So long ago, so far away
each night I pray
volver a los dias passados,
I promise you that come what may
those days will stay ever in my memory.

In all this world I could never find
the love that I had to leave behind
But duty calls, so whate’er befalls
remember me, recuérdame, mi amor!

God only knows what tomorrow brings,
you’re in my heart so my spirit sings,
And I’ll be strong just as long as you
remember me, recuérdame, mi amor!
