Townes Van Zandt — Fraulein lyrics

far across the blue water 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

Fraulein, fraulein, look up toward the heavens
Each night when the starts start to shine
By the same stars above you, i swear that i love you
You are my pretty fraulein



When my memories wander a-way 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
