FrauIein

Far across deep blue waters, lives an old German`s daughter
By the banks of the old river Rhine
Where I loved her and left her, but I can`t forget her
I miss my pretty Fraulein.

FrauIein, Fraulein, look up toward the Heaven
Each night when the stars start to shine
By the same stars above you, I swear that I love you
You are my pretty fraulein.

When my memories wander, away over yonder
To the sweetheart that I left behind
In a moment of glory, a face comes before me
The face of my pretty fraulein.

Fraulein, Fraulein, walk down by the river
Pretend that your hand`s holdin` mine
By the same stars above you, I swear that I love you
You are my pretty fraulein

The story goes thus: Ernest Tubb was in New Braunfels TX where a lot of German immigrants settled and he saw a pretty young blonde girl. She inspired the song. One ofmy favorites, too
