Melba From Melbourne

Song Author Marty Robbins Performer: Marty Robbins Submitted by: Anonymous

[C]Once I got a silly notion to go [F]out across the ocean
[C]The future for me didn't look too [G7]bright
So [C]I signed up with a tanker got [F]on board and raised the anchor
[C]Stood and watched the Golden [G7]Gate fade out of [C]sight

Nineteen days and nights we traveled [F]through stormy seas we battled
[C]Till we landed in on Australia far [G7]away   
Far [C]from friends and San Francisco and the [F]Miss I thought I´d miss so
[C]Till I stepped ashore of [G7]Melbourne that first [C]day  

Then I met [F]Melba from Melbourne she [C]made my heart yearn
[G7]She made my tears flow like [C]wine
She [F]let me kiss her then [C]made me miss her
Cause [G7]Melba could never be [C]mine

So in love but couldn't get her cared so [F]much I couldn't forget her
[C]I fell in love just a little bit more and [G7]more   
[C]There I was just like I started all [F]alone and broken hearted
[C]I recall the day I [G7]left Australian [C]shore

I was standing there and trying [F]so hard to keep from crying
[C]The more I tried the more my tears would [G7]show   
[C]When a soft breeze seem to whisper [F]it's the end you better kiss her
[C]So I kissed her then [G7]I turned away to [C]go  

Then I left [F]Melba from Melbourne she [C]made my heart yearn
[G7]She made my tears flow like [C]wine
[F]She wouldn't leave there I [C]couldn't stay there
So [G7]Melba could never be [C]mine


Once I got a silly notion to go out across the ocean
The future for me didn't look too bright
So I signed up with a tanker got on board and raised the anchor
Stood and watched the Golden Gate fade out of sight

Nineteen days and nights we traveled through stormy seas we battled
Till we landed in on Australia far away
Far from friends and San Francisco and the Miss I thought I´d miss so
Till I stepped ashore of Melbourne that first day

Then I met Melba from Melbourne she made my heart yearn
She made my tears flow like wine
She let me kiss her then made me miss her
Cause Melba could never be mine

So in love but couldn't get her cared so much I couldn't forget her
I fell in love just a little bit more and more
There I was just like I started all alone and broken hearted
I recall the day I left Australian shore

I was standing there and trying so hard to keep from crying
The more I tried the more my tears would show
When a soft breeze seem to whisper it's the end you better kiss her
So I kissed her then I turned away to go

Then I left Melba from Melbourne she made my heart yearn
She made my tears flow like wine
She wouldn't leave there I couldn't stay there
So Melba could never be mine
