On The Banks Of The Old Ponchartrain Lyrics

from Album (Album Unknown) by Percy Faith & His Orchestra
Percy Faith (April 7, 1908 – February 9, 1976) was a Canadian-born bandleader, orchestrator, composer and conductor conducting , known for his lush arrangements of pop and Christmas Christmas music [more..]

I travelled from texas to old louisanne

Thru valleys, o�¢??er mountains and plains

Both footsore and weary I rested awhile

On the banks of the old ponchartrain.

The fairest young maiden that I ever saw

Passed by as it started to rain

We both found a shelter beneath the same tree

On the banks of the old ponchartrain.

We hid from the shower an hour or so

She asked me how long I�¢??d remain

I told her that I�¢??d spend the rest of my days

On the banks of the old ponchartrain.

I just couldn�¢??t tell her that I ran away

From jail on a west texas plain

I prayed in my heart I would never be found

On the banks of the old ponchartrain.

Then one day a man put his hand on my arm

And said I must go west again

I left her alone without saying goodbye

On the banks of the old ponchartrain.

Tonight as I sit here alone in my cell

I know that she�¢??s waiting in vain

I�¢??m hoping and praying someday to return

To the banks of the old ponchartrain.


Percy Faith & His Orchestra
