SANDRA OF ST. MURA (SUHMURAN SANTRA)    -  Harri Marstio

(Time: 6/8)

[Verse 1]
    Em
One night there was dancing at St. Mura
                        B7
An accordion mournfully played

And the girls in their frocks came from near and far,
                               Em
In the moonlight they joyfully swayed

[Chorus 1]
  Am                        Em
I asked a fair maid: "May I walk by your side -
        B7                     Em
See you home to St. Mura?" and thus she replied:
      Am                    Em
"It's such a long way, it's such a long way
     B7            Em
From here to St. Mura"

[Verse 2]
   Em
So off went sweet Sandra into the night
                          B7
And I found my lonely way home

The next time I planned for a different plight,
                             Em
Bought a bicycle on which to roam

[Chorus 2]
    Am                        Em
But Sandra, sweet Sandra, she never came dancing,
       B7                       Em
Stayed home with her mother, at others ne'er glancing
     Am                    Em
It's such a long way, it's such a long way
     B7            Em
From here to St. Mura

[Verse 3]
  Em
Instead I met Mandy who lives nearby -
                              B7
The maid with the long golden hair

When I asked her: "Oh, please may I walk by your side?"
                            Em
She said, "I live just over there"

[Chorus 3]
      Am                      Em
So we went side by side on my bike in the moonlight,
    B7                     Em
And that was the end of my freedom that fine night
     Am                    Em
It's such a long way, it's such a long way
     B7            Em
From here to St. Mura

[Verse 4]
   Em
So now I am wedded to Mandy, I rue
                          B7
Our children I rock on my knee

And to Sandra my thoughts keep returning anew,
                          Em
And often I sigh: "Woe is me!"

[Chorus 4]
    Am                        Em
For what was I thinking of? I should have known better
     B7                             Em
"Tis all the bike's fault, I should never have let her!"
     Am                    Em
It's such a long way, it's such a long way
     B7            Em
From here to St. Mura
     Am                    Em
It's such a long way, it's such a long way
     B7            Em
From here to St. Mura
