I Hear You Calling Me was a British popular song published in London in 1908. The lyrics were by Harold Lake (a journalist writing as Harold Harford) and the music by Charles Marshall.
The song became a bestseller for the tenor John McCormack - it was his signature piece, and he recorded it six times in his life.
The words are poignant to all - it concerns somebody hearing the sound of a loved one's voice from beyond the grave. The song was based on the story of 16-year-old pupil teacher at an elementary school in Canterbury met a girl nearly a year his junior. Then followed three years of utter devotion as only the very young can know, but the girl died of consumption (what is now known as tuberculosis).
I used a score in Ab major, so took it down a semitone to G major, and tried to adapt it the guitar to the very best of my ability.
This is one of the later recordings by McCormack
