THE WEDDING OF LILI MARLENE (Tommie Connor / Johnny Reine) Ralph Flanagan & His Orch. (vocal: Harry Prime) - 1949 Anne Shelton - 1949 The Andrews Sisters - 1949 Frank Sinatra - 1949 Jack Simpson - 1949 There were tears in the crowded congregation, There were hearts that had loved but all in vain 'Twas goodbye to the sweetheart of the nation, At the wedding of Lili Marlene. Men who'd marched where the desert sands are burning From Tobruk down the road to Alamein, In their hearts tender mem'ries were returning At the wedding of Lili Marlene. As she knelt where the candlelights were gleaming, It seemed the choir sang soft and low, "Farewell my angel of the lamplight, We'll always love you so." Down the aisle came the bride in all her glory, To the strains of her own, sweet, love refrain, 'Twas the end of a very lovely story, At the wedding of Lili Marlene. (Transcribed by Bill Huntley - October 2004)
