This is one of those songs that melted my heart when I was young. Shelby's voice was so captivating it never fails to linger ...... Hope you'll enjoy it.
This is what Wikipedia says:
Shelby Flint (born September 17, 1939, North Hollywood, California) is a singer who had two top-100 hits, "Angel on My Shoulder" in 1961 and "Cast Your Fate to the Wind" in 1966.
Her single "I Will Love You" appeared in the Variety T.I.P.S. (Tune Index of Performance and Sales) Top 100 in 1961. She has been a singer in several movies including, Snoopy, Come Home and The Rescuers. Among the songs she performed for The Rescuers, "Someone's Waiting for You" was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Original Song in 1977.
In an April 1995 interview Joni Mitchell recalled that when she began making the rounds of the folk open mic circuit she wanted to sound just like Shelby Flint.
She attended public schools in Van Nuys California including Valerio Street Elementary, Robert Fulton Jr High and Birmingham High School where she graduated from in 1957.
Got an angel on my shoulder Got a penny in my pocket And I found a four leaf clover And I put it in my locket
Wished on all the stars above me And I caught the nearest rainbow Gonna find someone to love me Gonna find someone to love
Well I tossed a lot of nickels in the wishing well And saved the fortunes that the fortune cookies tell I got a lucky penny and a mustard seed But a warm and tender love is all I need
And I want a love that lingers And a strong one through and through So I´m gonna cross my fingers That I´ll find a boy who loves me true And I´m gonna love him too
