James Kimble "Kim" Gannon (November 18, 1900-April 29, 1974) was an American songwriter, more commonly a lyricist than a composer. He was born in Brooklyn, New York and originally intended to become a lawyer, attending the Albany Law School and passing the bar examination in New York State in 1934.
In 1939 he wrote his first song, "For Tonight." In 1942 he began writing songs for films, beginning with the lyrics of the title song for Always in My Heart. He subsequently contributed songs to other films, including Powers Girl and If Winter Comes. In 1951 he turned to the Broadway stage, joining with composer Walter Kent to write the score for Seventeen.
He died in Lake Worth, Florida, at the age of 73.
