WHERE'VE YOU BEEN? (Jon Vezner / Don Henry) Kathy Mattea - 1988 Tony Kenny - 1991 Jon Vezner - 1994 David Gurland - 1997 Natalie Douglas - 1999 Patti Page - 2000 Jon Philip Alman - 2005 Laini Risto - 2006 Also recorded by: Don Henry Claire had all but given up when she and Edwin fell in love She touched his face and shook her head in disbelief she sighed and said In many dreams I've held you near, but now at last you're really here Where've you been, I've looked for you forever and a day Where've you been, I'm just not myself when you're away He asked her for her hand for life and she became a salesman's wife He was home each night by eight, but one stormy evenin' he was late Her frightened tears fell to the floor until his key turned in the door Where've you been, I've looked for you forever and a day Where've you been, I'm just not myself when you're away They'd never spent a night apart, for sixty years she heard him snore Now they're in a hospital in separate beds on different floors Claire soon lost her memory, forgot the names of family She never spoke a word again, then one day they wheeled him in He held her hand and stroked her head, and in a fragile voice she said Where've you been, I've looked for you forever and a day Where've you been, I'm just not myself when you're away No, I'm just not myself when you're away (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - January 2011)
