Lili Marlene

Song Author Hans Leip og Norbert Shultz Lyrics by: Hans Leip og Norbert Shultz Performer: Marlene Dietrich Submitted by: Anonymous
[A]Underneath the l[F#m]antern [D9]by the barrack g[E7]ate,   
[E7]Darling I re[D9]member the w[E]ay you [E7]used to w[A]ait;
'Twas t[D]here that you [Cdim]whispered t[A]en - der - [F#7]ly,    
That y[D]ou lov'd[Cdim] me, you'd [Bm7]always [F#7]be,    
My [D9]Lilli [E7]of the l[A]ampl[F#7]ight, my [D9]own Lil[E7]li Marl[A]ene.

[A]Time would come for [F#m]roll call, [D9]time for us to p[E7]art ;
[E7]Darling I'd car[D9]ess you and p[E]ress you [E7]to my h[A]eart.
And t[D]here 'neath that [Cdim]far off l[A]antern [F#7]light    
I'd [D]hold you[Cdim] tight we'd [Bm7]kiss goodn[F#7]ight,    
My [D9]Lillie [E7]of the l[A]ampl[F#7]ight, my [D9]own Lil[E7]li Marl[A]ene.

[A]Orders came for [F#m]sailing s[D9]omewhere over t[E7]here,
[E7]All confined to b[D9]arracks was m[E]ore than [E7]I could b[A]ear;
I k[D]new you were [Cdim]waiting [A]in the [F#7]street,

I heard your feet, but could not meet,
My [D9]Lillie [E7]of the l[A]ampl[F#7]ight, my [D9]own Lil[E7]li Marl[A]ene.

[A]Resting in a [F#m]billet [D9]just behind the [E7]line,
[E7]Even though we're p[D9]arted, your li[E]ps are [E7]close to [A]mine,
You w[D]ait where that[Cdim] lantern s[A]oftly gl[F#7]eams    
Your s[D]weet face [Cdim]seems to [Bm7]haunt my d[F#7]reams,
My [D9]Lillie [E7]of the l[A]ampl[F#7]ight, my [D9]own Lil[E7]li Marl[A]ene.

Underneath the lantern by the barrack gate,
Darling I remember the way you used to wait;
'Twas there that you whispered ten - der - ly,
That you lov'd me, you'd always be,
My Lilli of the lamplight, my own Lilli Marlene.

Time would come for roll call, time for us to part ;
Darling I'd caress you and press you to my heart.
And there 'neath that far off lantern light
I'd hold you tight we'd kiss goodnight,
My Lillie of the lamplight, my own Lilli Marlene.

Orders came for sailing somewhere over there,
All confined to barracks was more than I could bear;
I knew you were waiting in the street,

I heard your feet, but could not meet,
My Lillie of the lamplight, my own Lilli Marlene.

Resting in a billet just behind the line,
Even though we're parted, your lips are close to mine,
You wait where that lantern softly gleams
Your sweet face seems to haunt my dreams,
My Lillie of the lamplight, my own Lilli Marlene.
