Lonely River Rhine

It was springtime on the river Rhine
I was lonesome for the love I left behind
So I stole what happiness my heart could find
From a German girl there on the river Rhine

She thought I was free right from the start
I said lovewords like an actor plays his part
Till one day I knew I met them from the heart
I found foreign love there on the river Rhine

In the cold and loney river Rhine
Lies my little darling, my fraulein
When she learned I had a wife
From the bank she took her life
I lost her to the lonely river Rhine

When at last I had to leave her side
It was hard for me to tell her how I lied
The morning papers told me how she died
They were searching for her in the river Rhine

In the cold and loney river Rhine
Lies my little darling, my fraulein
When she learned I had a wife
From that bank she took her life
I lost her to the lonely river Rhine
