From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dear_Hearts_and_Gentle_People:

"Dear Hearts and Gentle People" is a popular song published in 1949 with music by Sammy Fain and lyrics by Bob Hilliard. They were inspired to write the song based on a scrap of paper with the words "Dear friends and gentle hearts" written on it that was found on the body of Stephen Foster when he was discovered in a New York hotel room in January 1864.

Popular versions were recorded in 1949 by Dinah Shore, Gordon MacRae, Bing Crosby and Dennis Day.[1] In the United Kingdom, the song was recorded by Doreen Lundy. Later recordings were made by Perry Como in 1959 and again in 1980. The song references the singer's hometown, and different versions allude to a range of U.S. states.

The Dinah Shore recording was recorded on September 9, 1949, and released by Columbia Records (as catalog number 38605). This version alludes to Tennessee, Shore's home state. The recording first appeared on the Billboard charts on November 18, 1949, lasting 16 weeks and peaking at position number seven.[1]

The Gordon MacRae recording was recorded on October 21, 1949, and released by Capitol Records (as catalog number 777). It peaked at number 19 on the Billboard charts. The flip side was "Mule Train," which MacRae recorded October 1, 1949.[1]

The Bing Crosby recording was recorded on October 26, 1949, and released by Decca Records (as catalog number 24798). This version mentions Idaho, close to Crosby's home state of Washington. The flip side was "Mule Train". The recording first appeared on the Billboard charts on November 25, 1949, lasting 16 weeks and peaking at number two.[1]

The Dennis Day recording was released by RCA Victor Records as a 78rpm single (catalog number 20-3596), and as a 45rpm single (catalog number 47-3102). The recording first appeared on the Billboard charts on January 13, 1950, lasting three weeks and peaking at number 19.[1]

The Doreen Lundy recording was recorded on February 22, 1950, and released by EMI's UK Columbia Records label (as catalog number DB 2649).

The song was performed by Gene Autry and the Cass County Boys in the 1950 Columbia Pictures film Beyond the Purple Hills.

The Perry Como recording of April 23, 1959, was released as a track on the album Como Swings (catalog number LSP-2010). The Como recording of July 1980, from a live performance, was released on the album Perry Como Live on Tour in 1981 (catalog number AQL1-3826).

A version of the song was also recorded by The Springfields, featuring Dusty Springfield on vocals.

A recording of the song by Bob Crosby and the Bobcats was featured in the trailer for the 2008 retro-futuristic video game Fallout 3.[2], as well as being one of the songs on the in-game radio.

1. You cannot stick your tongue out and look up at the ceiling at the same time, a physical impossibility.
2. All idiots, after reading #1 will try it.
3. And discover #1 is a lie.
4. You are smiling now because you are an idiot.
5. You soon will forward this to another idiot.
6. There is still a stupid smile on your face.
 
I sincerely apologize about this but I'm an idiot and I needed company... Have a bright sunny day!

    GIGGLES! Thanks, Wayne!

Dear Hearts and Gentle People

Words by Bob Hilliard (28 Jan 1918 – 01 Feb 1971);

Music by Sammy Fain (17 June 1902 – 06 Dec 1989), 1949


I love those dear hearts and gentle people,
Who live in my home town.
Because those dear hearts and gentle people
Will never ever let you down.

They read the good Book from Fri' till Monday,
That's how the weekend goes.
I've got a dream house I'll build there one day,
With picket fence and ramblin' rose.

I feel so welcome each time that I return
That my happy heart keeps laughin' like a clown.
I love the dear hearts and gentle people,
Who live and love in my home town.

There's a place I'd like to go and it's Batten, Idaho,
Where your friendly neighbors smile and say "Hello."
It's a pleasure and a treat to meander down the street,
That's why I want the whole wide world to know.

I love those dear hearts and gentle people,
Who live in my home town.
Because those dear hearts and gentle people
Will never ever let you down
