Does anyone have the English version of this song? Easy to find in Africaans, but not in English.

Sorcha,
Thank you for your efforts. I did try to get the English
words through Mudcat a couple of years ago,
but with no luck. Anyone else have any leads?
I believe the English version appears in more than one
South African songbook.

I've found an English version, but I don't know whether it is a translation or a singable one:

Sarie Marais
(South Africa)

My Sarie Marais is so far from mh[sic] heart,
but I hope to see her again.
She used to live near the Mooi river
before the beginning of the war.

Oh bring me back to the old Transvaal,
there where my Sarie lives,
down there in the mealie fields by the green thorn tree,
there my Sarie Marais lives.

From this page.

SARIE MARAIS

My Sarie Marais is so far from my heart
And I'm longing to see her again
She lived in a farm on the Mooi River's bank
Before I left on this campaign

CHORUS
Oh bring me back to the old Transvaal
That's where I long to be
Way yonder 'mongst the mealies by the green thorny tree
Sarie is waiting for me
I wonder if I'll ever see that green thorny tree
There where she's waiting for me

I feared that the khakis would get hold of me
They would send me away o'er the sea
I fled overland to the Orange River sand
In Uppington I would be free

At last there was peace and I started for home
To the Transvaal I've always adored
My Sarie Marais will be waiting there for me
Her kiss will be my best reward

Lyric by Diggenhof & Marais
Traditional folk song of South Africa

Thank you one and all. Sometimes it takes awhile, but
nothing beats collective Mudcat musical knowledge!

All the best, Shimbo.

does anyone remember the jazzed up piano version of sarie marais that used to be played as a filler on old LM Radio as early as 1940's or thereabouts?
