[A] Far across deep blue waters, lives an [D] old German's daughter
By the [E] banks of the [E7] old river [A] Rhine
Where I loved her and left her, but [D] I can't forget her
[E] I miss my [E7] pretty Frau-[A] lein.
FrauIein, Fraulein, look [D] up toward the Heaven
Each [E] night when the stars [E7] start to [A] shine
By the same stars above you, I [D] swear that I love you
[E] You are my [E7] pretty frau-[A] lein.
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.
