Nancy Sinatra recorded this song

In my room

we're at the end of the harm

I sit and stare at the wall

each day's just like the last

for I lived in the past



In my room

where every night is the same

I play a dangerous game

I keep pretending he's late

And I sit and I wait



All the day is the picture

we took when he made me his bride

All the day is the charm way

he held me whenever I cried

All the day by the window

the flowers he left...



...I won't die!



In my room

we're at the end of the harm

I sit at I stare at the wall

hating how lonely I've growned

all alone

in my room...

There was indeed a woman who sang this song. I too have been searching. I was overseas back then, and assumed it was a Filipina singer, but when I returned to the states, Someone else said it was sung by Cilla Black. Lots if websites about her, but no mention of that song.

I've never heard the Walker Bros rendition.

This song ("In My Room") was also done by Nancy Sinatra, on an album called "Boots". I think that is who the the person is trying to find. (I just finally found this out after trying since the late 1960's.)

I was looking for it too.



Over there is the picture he took when he made me his bride.

Over there is the chair where he held me whenever I cried.

Over there by the window the flowers he left, have all died. (Very mournful)



Just can't remember the singers name. Susan something I think. But maybe not.

This was released by Nancy Sinatra also. For some reason, I kept thinking that Cher had done a version, but it isn't in her complete discography of singles, so I guess not. You can hear the song at:

Hope this is helpful.

This song was also recorded by Nancy Sinatra. You can find it and even hear it on one site by putting "in my room way at the end of the hall" into Google. It brings up only 3 pages, and the two for Sinatra's version are clearly labeled.

The female version you mention was the version I remembered too. It's Verdelle Smith available on I-Tunes.

This song was also recorded by Nancy Sinatra and I think at least one other women who sang it more intense than Nancy.

A lot more somber than the Walker Brothers version, and sung by  female is Nancy Sinatra's version of "In My Room".



It may, in fact, be the one I have been trying to find that matches the memory I have as a young child child, or they may yet another version, even more somber, mysterious and compelling (as I recall it)sung more dramatically, and atmosphereically heightened by organ music instead of brass, as in Nancy Sinatra's version).



While I search for that one, you might want to locate and play Nancy's.

The recording that you're thinking of is by Nancy Sinatra. The track appears on her album "Boots".

I think Cilla Black may have recorded it.

I wore the 45 out. It was definitely a female.

Nancy Sinatra



In my room

Way at the end of the hall

I sit and stare at the wall

Each day is just like the last

For I live in the past

In my room

Where every night is the same

I play a dangerous game

I keep pretending he's late

And I sit and I wait

Over there is the picture

We took when he made me his bride

Over there is the chair where

He held me whenever I cried

Over there by the window

The flowers he left, have all died

In my room

Way at the end of the hall

I sit and I stare at the wall

Hating how lonely I've grown

All alone in my room

Your thinking about Verdelle Smith. She recorded In My Room in 1966 as well as another song Walk Tall

I can answer general questions about rock era bands, record labels they were on, and names of songs. Often I can tell the name of the record company that released a song, as well as the name of the song, and the year of release based on some of the lyrics. I grew up during the rock era and I am a musician myself, and always read the album and 45 info for production credits as well as lineups. One of the chat rooms I go to is quite amused at my ability to name a song along with it`s year of release and record label. I was also a record collector for years.
