Song of the Day #3,732: ‘Here Comes My Baby’ – Ron Sexsmith

‘Here Comes My Baby’ was written by Cat Stevens in the late 60s and first released as a cover by a band called The Tremeloes in January of 1967. Their version landed on both the U.K. and U.S. charts.

According to an uncited (and therefore quite dubious) tidbit on The Tremeloes’ Wikipedia page, the band was signed by their label (Decca) over another English band, The Beatles, who were deemed a bit too far away in Liverpool.

Stevens released his own recording of the song a couple of months later on the album Matthew and Son. I know that version well due to its inclusion in Wes Anderson’s Rushmore.

Today’s SOTD is Ron Sexsmith’s cover of the track, which appeared as a bonus cut on his 2008 album Exit Strategy of the Soul.

In the midnight moonlight
I’ll be walkin’ a long and lonely mile
And every time I do
I keep seein’ this picture of you

Here comes my baby, here she comes now
And that comes as no surprise to me, with another guy
Here comes my baby, here she comes now
Walkin’ with a love, with a love that’s all so fine
Never could be mine, no matter how I try

You never walk alone
And you’re forever talkin’ on the phone
I’ve tried to call you names
But every time it comes out the same

Here comes my baby, here she comes now
And that comes as no surprise to me, with another guy
Here comes my baby, here she comes now
Walkin’ with a love, with a love that’s all so fine
Never could be mine, no matter how I try

I’m still waitin’ for your heart
Cause I’m sure that some day it’s gonna start
You’ll be mine to hold each day
But till then this is all that I can say

Here comes my baby, here she comes now
And that comes as no surprise to me, with another guy
Here comes my baby, here she comes now
Walkin’ with a love, with a love that’s all so fine
Never could be mine, no matter how I try

Here comes my baby, here she comes now
And that comes as no surprise to me, with another guy
Here comes my baby

    How could you doubt the Tremeloes drummer’s anonymous Wikipedia post?😜
