MELBA FROM MELBOURNE (Marty Robbins) Hank Snow - 1963 Marty Robbins - 1964 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 travelled Through stormy seas we battled Till we landed in Australia far away Far from friends and San Francisco And the Miss I thought I'd miss so Till I stepped ashore in 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 (Instrumental Break) So in love, but couldn't get her Cared so much, couldn't forget her 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 Australia's shore I was standin' there and tryin' So hard to keep from cryin' 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 (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - October 2010)
