Song title: Jole Blon

(Choates, York) by Harold Choates Goldstar) (or Waylon Jennings?), 1946

Jole Blon

Jole Blon, you're my flower
You're my darling, you're my sunshine
I love you, I adore you
I promise to be true

Over here in the shadows
I will be waiting, I will
When I hear you're voice I rejoice
I save my love for you

Sha la la, sha la la
Sha la la, sha la la
Sha la la, sha la la
Sha la la, sha la la

Jole Blon, you're an angel
Can I tell you how I love you?
In the spring I swear we will be married
I'm waiting still for you

When your hair turns to silver
I will still call you my flower
Jole Blon I'll still love you
I'll save my love for you

Sha la la, sha la la
Sha la la, sha la la
Sha la la, sha la la
Sha la la, sha la la

We will go away from this city
We will go back girl, to our home
I swear some day I will take you
'Cause so far away we have roamed

And the bells they will ring
From the mountain to the valley
On the banks of the river
There you will be my bride

Sha la la, sha la la
Sha la la, sha la la
Sha la la, sha la la
Sha la la, sha la la

Sha la la, sha la la
Sha la la, sha la la
Sha la la, sha la la
Sha la la, sha la la
