I Left My Heart In San Francisco Lyrics

Artist: Tony Bennett

I Left My Heart In San Francisco
Tony Bennett
Words by Douglass Cross and Music by George Cory

Peak chart position # 19 in 1962
Tony's signature song. Surprisingly, this song is not even close to being his biggest chart
success. He had a half-dozen other Top 20 hits that were initially more popular.


The loveliness of Paris seems somehow sadly gay
The glory that was Rome is of another day
I've been terribly alone and forgotten in Manhattan
I'm going home to my city by the Bay

I left my heart in San Francisco
High on a hill, it calls to me
To be where little cable cars climb halfway to the stars
The morning fog may chill the air, I don't care

My love waits there in San Francisco
Above the blue and windy sea
When I come home to you, San Francisco
Your golden sun will shine for me

I realize Mt. Tamapias must be the hill in San Francisco where my heart was left. Total beauty. God how I miss it there.
