Here's an old one I love to sing. Doesn't sound like one of Uncle Dave's, though......Tiger

Sweet Marie
Words by Cy Warman, Music by Raymon Moore
Copyright 1893

I've a secret in my heart, sweet Marie,
A tale I would impart, love, to thee.
Ev'ry daisy in the dell
Knows my secret, knows it well,
And yet I dare not tell
Sweet Marie.

When I hold your hand in mine, sweet Marie,
A feeling most divine, comes to me.
All the world is full of Spring,
Full of warblers on the wing,
And I listen while they sing,
Sweet Marie.

    Come to me, sweet Marie.
    Sweet Marie, come to me.
    Not because your face is fair, love, to see,
    But your soul, so pure and sweet,
    Makes my happiness complete;
    Makes me falter at your feet,
    Sweet Marie.

In the morn when I awake, sweet Marie,
Seems to me my heart will break, love, for thee.
Ev'ry wave that shakes the shore
Seems to sing it o'er and o'er,
Seems to say that I adore
Sweet Marie.

When the sunset tints the west, sweet Marie,
And I sit down to rest, love, with thee,
Ev'ry star that studs the sky,
Seems to stand and wonder why,
They're no dimmer than your eye,
Sweet Marie.

    CHORUS (2x)
