Melba From Melbourne Written and recorded by Marty Robbins C F Once I got a silly notion to go out across the ocean C G7 The future for me didn't look too bright C F So I signed up with a tanker got on board and raised the anchor C G7 C Stood and watched the Golden Gate fade out of sight
F Nineteen days and nights we traveled through stormy seas we battled C G7 Till we landed in on Australia far away C F Far from friends and San Francisco and the Miss I thought I’d miss so C G7 C Till I stepped ashore of Melbourne that first day
F C Then I met Melba from Melbourne she made my heart yearn G7 C She made my tears flow like wine F C She let me kiss her then made me miss her G7 C Cause Melba could never be mine
F So in love but couldn't get her cared so much I couldn't forget her C G7 I fell in love just a little bit more and more C F There I was just like I started all alone and broken hearted C G7 C I recall the day I left Australian shore
F I was standing there and trying so hard to keep from crying C G7 The more I tried the more my tears would show C F When a soft breeze seem to whisper it's the end you better kiss her C G7 C So I kissed her then I turned away to go
F C Then I left Melba from Melbourne she made my heart yearn G7 C She made my tears flow like wine F C She wouldn't leave there I couldn't stay there G7 C So Melba could never be mine
