For Jasmine and Gislinde

18 Jun

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
’cause you are my pretty fraulein.

      Thanks Noeleen, sorry for the delay in responding, have been in hospital for a while with a few problems, home now and adjusting to the heatwaves that we are experiencing, second heatwave coming up next week with the temps into the mid 40s.
      I am finding it hard to get enthusiastic with wordpress at the moment, mostly in writing, but I do read blogs.
      Wishing you well my friend. I still have a number of your blogs to read yet.

        Ian, it’s so good to hear form you. I have wondered how you are. I had no idea you’d been in hospital, but had wondered how you are.

        I do hope things are okay with your health.

        I understand what you mean re enthusiastic with posting. I do understand. Enjoy your break, & the best time to come back into it is when you feel it. Sincerely wish you well.

    Ian, you have outdone yourself! What an international blog! Australian Alps with a U.S. country and Western flavor. I loved every second.

    I’ve never heard of Bobby Helms, but he is certainly a good singer! 🙂

    God Bless!

      Hi Prenin, glad you enjoyed Bobby Helms singing, I have never heard of him either but I do recall Elvis singing a version of the same song.
