English Sweetheart  Webb Pierce

An American boy met an English girl
Far [C]out across the [G]sea
They laughed and loved and lived each day
[A7]Their life was full of [D7]glee
[G]They knew someday he must return
To [C]his native fami[G]ly
When it came and the aye was nigh
These [D7]words he heard her [G]say
Please donít leave me here to cry
I [C]watch as sweethearts [G]flee
Seems so hard for us to part
[A7]And leave me here to [D7]grieve
[G]Though I know you must return
To [C]your native fami[G]ly
Tell me that you love me dear
And [D7]will return some[G]day
He kissed her then he said goodbye
And [C]slowly walked [G]away
He could not bear to see her cry
[A7]It filled his heart with [D7]pain
[G]She prayed and dreamed of his return
Al[C]though it never [G]came
He wed anew in his native land
But [D7]inside these words still [G]ring
Repeat #3 & 4
