But in my heart’s the memory, and there you’ll always be.” The melody is slow and melancholic, with a poignant and mournful tone that captures the sadness of the moment.

Patch, with vocals performed by American singer Jeanette Nolan, who provides the voice of Widow Tweed in the film. “Goodbye May Seem Forever” has become one of the most memorable and poignant songs from “The Fox and the Hound”, and is often cited as an example of the emotional depth and complexity found in many classic Disney films.
