Lily Marlene
Recorded by Hank Snow
written by Hans Leip and Norbert Schulze

G                          C
Would you like to hear the story
     D7                      G
Of a girl that many soldiers know
                                C
It's a tale of love and all its glory
     A7                       D7
They tell when the lights are soft and low

G                        D7
Underneath the lamp post by the barracks gate
                                           G
Standing all alone every night you see her wait
C                         G
She waits for the boy who marched away
    D7                             G
And though he's gone she hears him say

   D7                G
Oh promise you'll be true
          D7           G
Fare thee well Lily Marlene
     D7          G
Till I return to you 
          D7           G
Fare thee well Lily Marlene

                           C
With the kiss she gave her promise
   D7                          G
To be constant as the stars up above
                                 C
Every soldier knows she kept her promise
    A7                    D7                       
And she has been faithful to her love

G                        D7
Underneath the lamp post by the barracks gate
                                           G
Standing all alone every night you see her wait
C                       G
For this is the place a vow was made
    D7                   G
And breezes sing her serenade

repeat #3
                              C
Though each tale must have an ending
   D7                               G
No one knows just what the end will be
                             C
But tonight when twilight is descending
   A7                               D7
If you'll come along here's what you'll see

G                        D7
Underneath the lamp post by the barracks gate
                                           G
Standing all alone every night you see her wait
C                       G     
And as they go marching to the prey
    D7                      G
The soldiers all salute and say

repeat #3
