Miss Leslie performs "(You Never Can Tell) C'est la Vie"

Emmylou Harris' recording of "You Never Can Tell" - entitled "(You Never Can Tell) C'est La Vie" - was the lead single from her 1977 Warner Bros. Records album Luxury Liner.

 

Harris had sung Chuck Berry songs as a member of a DC-based folk trio early in her career. Her decision to record "...C'est La Vie" was the result of her listening extensively to rock-&-roll oldies while on the road.The track, which features a prominent Cajun fiddle contribution by Ricky Skaggs, was recorded in an August 10, 1976 session recorded in the Enactron Truck, the mobile studio owned and operated by Harris' producer Brian Ahern. The same session yielded "Hello Stranger" which would serve as the B-side of the single release.

 

Released February 2, 1977, "...C'est La Vie" rose as high as #6 on C&W chart in Billboard that April. The track also rose to #4 and #5, respectively in the Netherlands and also the Flemish Region of Belgium. It also charted in Germany at #41.

Emmylou Harris You Never Can Tell C'est La Vie Lyrics

 

It was a teenage wedding 

And the old folks wished them well 

You could see that Pierre 

Did truly love the mademoiselle 

And now the young monsieur and madame 

Have rung the chapel bell 

"C'est la vie", say the old folks 

It goes to slow you never can tell

They furnished off an apartment 

With a two room Roebuck sale 

The coolerator was crammed 

With T.V. Dinners and ginger ale 

But when Pierre found work 

The little money comin' worked out well 

"C'est la vie", say the old folks 

It goes to show you never can tell

They had a hi-fi phono 

Boy did they let it blast 

Seven hundred little records 

All rockin' rhythm and jazz 

But when the sun went down 

The rapid tempo of the music fell 

"C'est la vie", say the old folks 

It goes to show you never can tell

They bought a souped-up Jimmy 

T'was a cherry-red fifty three

Drove it down to Orleans 

To celebrate their anniversary 

It was there that Pierre 

Was wedded to the lovely mademoiselle 

"C'est la vie", say the old folks 

It goes to show you never can tell

It was a teenage wedding 

And the old folks wished them well

You could see that Pierre 

Did truly love the mademoiselle

And now the young monsieur and madame 

Have rung the chapel bell 

"C'est la vie", say the old folks 

It goes to show you never can tell

"C'est la vie", say the old folks 

It goes to show you never can tell

"C'est la vie", say the old folks 

It goes to show you never can tell
