Fraulein Townes Van Zandt
Recorded by Townes van Zandt
[D] [A7] [D]
F[D]ar across the deep blue waters, lives [G]an old German's daughter
On the b[D]anks of the old river R[A7]hine
There I l[D]oved her and left her, and [G]I can't forget her
[D]Oh she was my pr[A7]etty Frau-l[D]ein.
Fra[D]uIein, Fraulein, walk do[G]wn by the river
Ton[A]ight when those stars s[A7]tart to s[D]hine
By those same stars above you, but I'll s[G]wear that I love you
Oh y[A]ou are my p[A7]retty frau-l[D]ein.
When my memories wander, away over yonder
To the one 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
Tonight when the stars start to shine
By thosesame stars above you, but I'll swear that I love you
Oh you are my pretty fraulein.
