Bobby Helms Lyrics

Far across the blue waters
Lives an old German's daughter
By the banks of the old river Rhine
Where I loved her and left her
But I can't forget her
'Cause I miss my pretty Fraulein

Fraulein, Fraulein
Look up toward the heavens each night
When the stars seem to shine
By the same stars above you
I swear that I love you
You are my pretty Fraulein

When my memories wander
Away over yonder
To the sweetheart that I left behind
In a moment of glory
A face comes before me
The face of my pretty Fraulein

Fraulein, Fraulein
Walk down by the river
Pretend that your hand's holding mine
By the same stars above you
I swear that I love you

This song came out of the era when country singers knew what they were doing. A great job on this song, from the great '50's.

I love this song


There's still a few with some sense these days. Not that many, but there's a handful.

I was in the army in Germany when this record came out, it was very popular over there, too.  I played the guitar and sang this song with a group of other musicians putting on shows in the  USO club, it was one of  our most requested songs.  I bought this record when I came home.  I am now 77 years old still healthy and playing with some guys I know and still sing this song.  He had another song I really liked called "Standing At The End Of My World."

Mr. Terrell, now we have autumn 2021 and I hope you're still fine. I was born in october '67 and love this great Bobby Helms track. I'm German and live in Germany - all the very best to you.... wünsche Ihnen von ganzem Herzen alles Gute.


Thanks for your service! And for sharing your other favorite Helm’s song. I admittedly haven’t heard much of him but always liked his “Jingle Bell Rock”. For whatever reason the 50s sound reminded me a lot of Ritchie Valens so I figured I’d listen to more of Helm’s work.

I was in the Army in München from the Spring 1964 until January 1967. The best three years of my life. Since I was an officer, I didn't hear any good country music at the officer's club. (I should have gotten my first sergeant to take me to the NCO club...if they would have let me in.) I had some red hot romances with some really schön frauleins. Would have brought one back, if it had worked out, but I fell in love with an American girl who was traveling though Europe with a friend. That didn't work out either. Ended up marrying a coed from Florida...for 31 years.
