 I Remember You is from the Paramount Picture The Fleet's In. The song was written by Johnny Mercer in 1942, along with the music by Victor Schertzinger. Recorded by Jimmy Dorsey in 1942 and the Slim Whitman sings it like a classic country song.

It's played in the Key of G with 4/4 time signature. Moderately, not too fast. Here it is on YouTube.
