Lyrics to "Postcard From Paris" song by "Glen Campbell"

Dear friend of my mine
Weather's fine
Today, I saw some ruins
Of the Roman world's declineAnd I climbed all those Spanish steps
You've heard of them no doubt
But Rome has lost its glory
I don't know what it's aboutI wish you were here
When the shadows fall
And all the rushing traffic's stillI wish you were here
When the bells are ringing
On the seven hillsI make my way to a small cafe
I wonder what you did today
Wish you were hereDear one at home
I just flew in from Rome
And Paris is a postcard
All decked out in color chromeAnd so, I climbed the Eiffel Tower
And prayed at Notre Dame
But I just can't find the romance
And I wonder why I cameI wish you were here
On the Champs Elysees
Lovers walk hand in handI wish you were here
They take one look at me
And seem to understandThis city of light is a lovely site
The first bright star I see tonight
Wish you were hereNow, I write this from the plane
Drinking cheap champagne
And wondering why
Two people got so far apartI wish you were here
Here in London
Where the rain the pouring downI wish you were here
On this airplane
Headed back to New York TownI'll never leave you alone again
I'm coming home but until then
Wish you were hereI wish you were here
Wish you were here

Glen Campbell (April 22, 1936 in Delight, Arkansas) is an American pop-country singer and guitarist, best known for a series of hits in the 1960s and 1970s, as well as for hosting a television variety show. Much like George Benson in the jazz world, Campbell's emerging vocal abilities eventually overshadowed his much-admired musical skills as a guitarist and changed the expected course of his career.

Before starting a solo career in 1962, Campbell was known as an accomplished guitarist with a finely tuned musicality and was in great demand as a session musician in the 1960s, playing on records by artists such as Bobby Darin, Ricky Nelson, Merle Haggard, The Monkees, Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, The Association, and The Mamas & the Papas.

He was a full-fledged member of The Beach Boys, filling in for an ailing Brian Wilson on tour in 1964 and 1965 and playing on the Pet Sounds album.

Campbell’s accolades as a musician and singer are as impressive as his talent. He made history by winning a Grammy in both country and pop categories in 1967: Gentle on My Mind snatched the country honors, and By the Time I Get to Phoenix won in pop. He owns trophies for Male Vocalist of the Year from both the CMA and the ACM, and took the CMA’s top honor as Entertainer of the Year.

During his 40 years in show business, Campbell has released over 70 albums, sold 45 million records, and racked up 12 RIAA Gold albums, 4 Platinum albums, and 1 Double-Platinum album. Of his 75 trips up the charts, 27 landed in the Top 10.

In 2005, Campbell was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. He is reportedly working on a new CD with Jimmy Webb scheduled for release in late 2006. In 2008 he released Meet Glen Campbell on Capitol Records, in which he covered songs from such artists as the Foo Fighters, John Lennon, Tom Petty, and The Velvet Underground.

On August 29, 2011 Glen Campbell released his final studio album titled "Ghost On The Canvas" on Surfdog Records, an album reflecting Glen Campbell’s life from his Arkansas origins to Hollywood fame, dominating the pop charts. An extensive Goodbye Tour is planned to support his farewell release. Read more on User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply.
