Written and Recorded by Marty Robbins

[C]Once I got a silly notion to go [F]out across the ocean
[C]The future for me didn’t look too [G7]bright
So [C]I signed up with a tanker got [F]on board and raised the anchor
[C]Stood and watched the Golden [G7]Gate fade out of [C]sight
Nineteen days and nights we traveled [F]through stormy seas we battled
[C]Till we landed in on Australia far [G7]away
Far [C]from friends and San Francisco and the [F]Miss I thought I’d miss so
[C]Till I stepped ashore of [G7]Melbourne that first [C]day
Then I met [F]Melba from Melbourne she [C]made my heart yearn
[G7]She made my tears flow like [C]wine
She [F]let me kiss her then [C]made me miss her
Cause [G7]Melba could never be [C]mine
So in love but couldn’t get her cared so [F]much I couldn’t forget her
[C]I fell in love just a little bit more and [G7]more
[C]There I was just like I started all [F]alone and broken hearted
[C]I recall the day I [G7]left Australian [C]shore
I was standing there and trying [F]so hard to keep from crying
[C]The more I tried the more my tears would [G7]show
[C]When a soft breeze seem to whisper [F]it’s the end you better kiss her
[C]So I kissed her then [G7]I turned away to [C]go
Then I left [F]Melba from Melbourne she [C]made my heart yearn
[G7]She made my tears flow like [C]wine
[F]She wouldn’t leave there I [C]couldn’t stay there
So [G7]Melba could never be [C]mine[/chordpress]

Who is Marty Robbins?
– Martin David Robinson (September 26, 1925 – December 8, 1982), known professionally as Marty Robbins, was an American singer, songwriter, actor, multi-instrumentalist, and NASCAR racing driver. Robbins was one of the most popular and successful country and western singers for most of his nearly four-decade career, which spanned from the late 1940s to the early 1980s.
Born in Glendale, Arizona, Robbins taught himself guitar while serving in the United States Navy during World War II, and subsequently drew fame performing in clubs in and around his hometown. In 1956, he released his first No. 1 country song, “Singing the Blues” and one year later, released two more No. 1 hits, “A White Sport Coat” and “The Story of My Life”. In 1959, Robbins released his signature song, “El Paso”, for which he won the Grammy Award for Best Country & Western Recording. The song began Robbins’ association with western balladry, a style which would become a staple of his career. Later releases that drew critical acclaim include “Don’t Worry”, “Big Iron” and “Honkytonk Man”, the last for which the 1982 Clint Eastwood film is named, and in which Robbins made his final appearance before death.
Over the course of his career, Robbins recorded more than 500 songs and 60 albums, and won two Grammy Awards, was elected to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame, and was named the 1960s Artist of the Decade by the Academy of Country Music. Robbins was a commercial success in both the country and pop genres, and his songs were covered by many other famous artists, including Johnny Cash, the Grateful Dead and Elvis Presley. His music continues to have an influence in pop culture today, having recently appeared in several contemporary pop culture features, including the video game Fallout: New Vegas, and the series finale of AMC’s Breaking Bad.
