Folk/classic rock song with partial lyrics, "...I saw you, I saw you..."

Ok this song has also been used in a couple of movie soundtrack but, of course, I cannot place them! Possibly Forrest Gump or Almost Famous. Anyway, a male voice, slow song, acoustic-ish, it has a sad feeling to it. I can hear it, in my head of course, and the 1st part is "I saaaw yo-oo-ou, I saw yo-oo-ou..." ( the notes in the vocal in 'you' are decending lower like yoo- 1st note, then the 2nd'oo' would drop down a half note(ex. if the 1st note C major the second would be a black key, half step down like a B flat...I think)then the last note, '-ou' descends further. the next line after the two "I saw you's" he either says "...walking back to me" or "standing.." the notes are walking two notes, but same notes (i.e. BB)..i dont know! I just know its making me crazy

Thank you for posting this. The "I saw you" line has been popping into my head at odd times for the past two days. It's only because you remembered (sort of) the next line that I could put it together. Whew!
