Subject: Help: ID female singer 55-56 era
From: Gene
Date: 22 Aug 08 - 08:35 PM

while rumaging thru some old tapes i made in berlin, germany
in 1955/56.. off of Armed Forces Network Radio, I ran across some country shows and am having memory problems ID'ing the singers.

can only guess at the title to this up tempo song...

[i'm just a sailor's sweetheart]
and i love my sailor lad
but he left me ........
he was all i ever had

but i still believe in sailors
and i'm true to the red white and blue
and altho i'm barred from the navy yard
oh i love my sailor lad, positively

i was just a sailor's sweetheart
and i loved my sailor lad
but one day at coney island
boy, he sure did get me mad

when he put his bathing suit on
big as life tattooed there on his chest
was the name marie, mine is rosalie
did he have to take it off, positively

two other verses....

help anybody...
G

This may not be the same singer, but there's good info in THIS THREAD about the actual song.

Mystery Solved.

Thanks Kat for the reference, interesting NFO. This particular song was recorded by country singer Rosalie Allen (singing partner of Elton Britt).

Oddly enough, her name is in the song. (My attention to detail is slipping badly).

complete lyrics are below.

A Sailor's Sweetheart
As sung by Rosalie Allen

I'm just a Sailor's Sweetheart
And I love my sailor lad
but he left me broke in Norfolk
He was all I ever had
But I still believe in sailors
And I'm true to the red, white and blue
And altho I'm barred, from the navy yard
Oh, I love my sailor lad, positively

I was just a Sailor's Sweetheart
And I loved my sailor lad
But one day at Coney Island
Boy, he sure did get me mad
When he put his bathing suit on
Big as life tattooed there on his chest
Was the name Marie, mine is Rosalie
Did he have to take it off, positively

I am just a Sailor's Sweetheart
I'm the saltiest gal you'll meet
And I go from Maine to 'Frisco
When I'm following the fleet
'cause I love my First Class Bosun
'cause he's rough and tough with me
And tho I got sore when he broke my jaw
Oh, I love that sailor lad, positiviely

TAG:
And altho he gets me mad
Boy he sure does get me mad
Do I love that sailor lad, positively.
