Elvis presumably still felt something of the soldier away from home when he sang this number as a duet with Charlie Hodge for the fantastic "Elvis Is Back" album, recorded just after his discharge in 1960. Indeed, it was during his time in the army that the idea to record the number might have come to him: he met and jammed with the Golden Gate Quartet during a weekend leave in Paris. The Golden Gate Quartet must have had the same sort of sentiments when they recorded their original version of this Benny Benjamin and Lou Singer song on 16 March 1945, released on both Okeh 6741 and Columbia 37832. Willie Johnson had left the group and his replacement, Alton Bradley, sang the lead. The group began singing together in the mid-1930s as the Golden Gate Jubilee Quartet. Initially a gospel group, they moved into jazz and swing styles during the 1940s whilst continuing their gospel singing. At the end of the 1950s they moved to France, where they remain popular.

I will be home again
Don'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

Sweetheart
the love you're giving
Thrills my hungry heart
You make my life worth the living
Although we are apart

I will be home again
We'll start anew
Darling until then
Our dreams will have to do

( instrumental )

Sweetheart
the love you're giving
Thrills my hungry heart
You make my life worth the living
Although we are apart

I will be home again
We'll start anew
Darling until then
Our dreams will have to do
